Badari (2) "It is my privilege and honor to acknowledge Tom's contributions to Experiential Education.  In my opinion he is a "Master GURU" of this industry.  "Teamwork Cards" are a classic example of his work and experience.  The book provides easy to follow instructions and outlines all the basic factors which any facilitator needs to know prior to facilitating these activities. I strongly recommend Teamwork Cards for educators, teachers, community leaders, trainers and managers who want to establish positive and nurturing relationships with the groups they're working with"

FREE Teamwork Cards DVD Included - -$30 value

Shows all 20 games in action! 

Teamwork_Cards_DVD_med When you want to learn a teambuilding game fast and easy, video is the next best thing to attending a live workshop.

The Teamwork Cards BOOK is filled with photographs to help you understand how to lead all 20 of the teamwork games.  As good as photographs are at communicating an idea (“a picture is worth a thousand words”), video is far superior to getting the idea across quickly and easily. 

Over the course of three years, I shot video of all 20 of the Teamwork Cards games in action with real groups, edited it and then compiled them on this DVD.  The result is an invaluable resource - - a virtual how-to-lead-it workshop you can access 24 hours a day whenever you need it! 

It took me several years and thousands of dollars to produce this DVD training resource and I could easily sell it as an "add on" for $30 or even $50 HOWEVER, I'm going to send you the DVD for FREE when you order the cards.  I’m that committed to helping you learn how to become the ultimate teambuilder!

With the Teamwork Cards, you'll be able to lead teambuilding games that teach vital team skills such as:

  • Leadership
  • Trust
  • Cooperation
  • Creativity
  • Problem Solving
  • Confidence

Marty_okeefe_2 "Tom Heck has once again taken his passion for creatively working with groups and developed an incredibly valuable tool that will enhance your abilities to make a difference with the groups you facilitate. His thoughtful insights into how to assist groups in making connections through games and processing activities come through in this book. The combination of individual plans for each activity, along with the DVD showing the games in action, makes this book extremely easy to put the Teamwork Cards into action with your groups right away! This book provides teamwork facilitators the opportunity to take their skills to the next level and in the process transform the teams they serve. Thank you Tom!"

Teambuilding Fun & Variety

What kind of teambuilding games can you lead with the Teamwork Cards?  Games that work in all situations - - from the classroom to the boardroom:

  • Games for small teams
  • Activities for large groups
  • Fast moving games
  • Games requiring slow, thoughtful, and deliberate action
  • Icebreakers and get-to-know you games
  • Activities requiring physical strength
  • Challenges requiring brain power
  • Trust building activities
  • Problem solving exercises
  • Games to enhance communication skills

 

What's Printed On The Teamwork Cards?

I've been developing the 30 Teamwork Cards for several years. I've tested various information systems on the cards with teambuilding clients and have removed some content and replaced it with other content.  The cards have content on the front and back that allow them to be used for a number of different teambuilding games and debrifing activities.

Teamwork_card_front_jpg_smTeamwork_card_back_jpg_sm On the front of the Teamwork Cards you'll find an full color "metaphor" image, leadership trait/characteristic, large blue number, and a Leadership Coaching Question.

On the back of the Teamwork Cards you'll find an inspirational leadership quote, large red letter, and an "Evolutionary Progression".

Evolutionary Progressions are a unique training tool developed by Thomas Leonard (1955 - 2003) who many consider to be the father of leadership coaching.  Dave Buck is the CEO of Coachville.com and is responsible for maintaining the intellectualy property of Thomas Leonard.  Dave was so excited about the Teamwork Cards project that he worked exclusively with me to include Evolutionary Progressions on the cards

The Teamwork Cards are laminated and arrive at your door in a clear plastic carrying case so you can easily keep track of your cards and travel with them anywhere.

A quick word about lamination.  You'll find most card sets that are available in the market place are NOT laminated and I understand why.  Lamination is expensive and it adds a lot of weight which increases cost of shipping.  We could have covered the cards with some else, something less expensive and less durable but laminated cards are super durable which means they will last much longer for you.

 

How About A Sample Game?

So you can have a full taste for what you'll have within your grasp when you order your set of Teamwork Cards, here's a sample game from the book - - it's called "Word Race".

The group starts behind a line and then sends a small team out to a "spelling line" where, using the Teamwork Cards, they spell a word and then race back.  The group tries to spell as many words as possible before time runs out.  The team sets a "record" during round one and then tries to beat their record during round two and three.  This teambuilding game requires a great deal of coordination, planning, and teamwork.  The written instructions provide all the details for leading this game yourself AND tips on how to debrief (process) the game with your group.

Ed_nottingham “Could you do a teambuilding activity for us? How many times are we asked this?  How many times have we wished we had a resource in-hand so we could deliver a teambuilding experience without having to rely on someone else? Whether leaders of teams, consultants, or working in human resources (HR), organizational development (OD), or in other areas, teambuilding activities are often needed.  Tom Heck’s latest book Teamwork Cards is an amazing resource that provides 25 teambuilding activities that are straightforward and an easy to deliver. With the Teamwork Cards in hand, leaders, trainers, facilitators, consultants, and others will be well equipped to deliver, facilitate, and debrief teambuilding activities that will certainly hit the mark.”

Craig_wallace "Hi Tom, this resource comes right at the perfect time! We've just started updating our product and activity details and I was going to trawl the Internet and hit the books for some inspiration. You've just saved me hours of work. I also love the way you've set out the explanatory notes for each activity. My staff training notes are now done for me too! If this resource gets used as much as we've used your 101 Team Building Ideas DVDs we'll just about wear out the DVD player!"

Who needs this book?

  • Trainers
  • Facilitators
  • Educators
  • Coaches
  • Managers & Supervisors
  • Counselors
  • Team Leaders

Duct Tape Teambuilding Games provides complete lead-it-yourself step-by-step instructions that will help you turn your next team skills training event into a dynamic, kinesthetic and memorable team learning experience.  

Now is the time to help your team stick together!

In the current financial situation, too many teams are struggling because they lack “stickiness” meaning they fall apart when the going gets tough.  Your experience can be different.  Using the activities found in Duct Tape Teambuilding Games you can teach your team how to stick together and work as one even when times are tough -- ESPECIALLY when times are tough.

Is motivation an issue on your team?

Most team leaders want to motivate their team.  Motivation is a technique-driven strategy of moving a team forward.  The problem with motivation is this:  when the leader isn’t putting energy into motivating his team, the team stops.  A more sustainable model is to INSPIRE the team.  When the leader inspires the team he taps into what’s driving his team members.  When a team is inspired they move forward on their own because the leader has triggered something inside each team member.  The activities found in Duct Tape Teambuilding Games will help you move a team to the place of inspiration.

Each of the Duct Tape Teambuilding Games includes details on:

  • Game Objective
  • Skills Developed
  • Set Up / Preparation
  • Presenting the Challenge
  • Rules
  • Safety Warning
  • Suggested “Story Line”
  • Facilitator Notes
  • Debriefing Suggestions
  • Game Variations
  • And more!

Video of All 50 Games Included!

When you want to learn a teambuilding game fast and easy, video is the next best thing to attending a live workshop.

Duct Tape Teambuilding Games is filled with photographs to help you understand how to lead all 50 of the teamwork games.  As good as photographs are at communicating an idea (“a picture is worth a thousand words”), video is far superior to getting the idea across quickly and easily.  

Over the course of two years, I shot video of all 50 of the Duct Tape Teambuilding Games in action with real groups, edited it and then posted it on a special password-protected website.  The result is an invaluable resource - - a virtual how-to-lead-it workshop you can access 24 hours a day.  

Each copy of Duct Tape Teambuilding Games contains the login information you need to  access this multimedia training experience.  

Although it took me several years and thousands of dollars to produce this video training resource, you get access to it for FREE.  I’m that committed to helping you learn how to become the ultimate teambuilder!

Relly_nadler "Tom Heck's book Duck Tape Teambuilding Games is a great resource for teambuilding activities, low on props and high on impact. I especially like the easy to follow write-ups and debriefing points. If that wasn't enough having a link to the video of each of 50 activities is a brilliant and innovative idea. Learning using all senses is one reason experiential learning is so powerful.The book and link will be an invaluable resource for you."

Lisa "Tom - I just finished reading your new book and I loved it!  I knew duct tape could be a powerful adhesive, but never thought about its power to help a team form a strong bond!  I am inspired by the creative uses of duct tape!  I lead lots of portable adventure programs and can often be found traveling around with huge bags of equipment that are heavy, cumbersome and just plain difficult to store, not to mention expensive.  Who would've thought I could do many of those very same activities and just carry a duffel bag of duct tape?!  I just LOVE it!    And this book goes farther than most by providing realistic time frames, exciting variations, and engaging story lines.  I really think this book is a must-have not only for the beginning team builder but also for advanced ones!  It won't be one that I will just "stick" on my self, but it is sure to become a treasured favorite!"

Mikewithhoops "I've heard it said that Duct Tape can fix anything.  Tom Hecks' new book using Duct Tape for team building has the same effect.  Tom’s book will make your team stronger and you will not rip out you hair doing so!  Tom uses his insight into group dynamics and his mix of multimedia to engage participants in team development.  As I read through the book I could imagine myself, as a facilitator, using any and all of these initiatives.  Tom has managed to take a low ropes course and make it accessible and portable to a roll of Duct tape that can be purchased at any store.  A great book, from a Team Building Expert!"

#############################

Michaelgoldman "As a professional meeting facilitator  I'm constantly on the search for teambuilding ideas that immediately engage people but also help me link the learning to the team's core issues.  My challenge with many team exercises is that there's a risk in doing an activity with a group unless you 'really know' it will achieve the intended outcomes.

Tom Heck has once again created dynamic team activities that are fun, easy to lead, requiring minimal materials (i.e. a roll of duct tape!). Not only are there thorough notes on 'how' to run each activity but there is a video clip of the activity in action.  This helps me understand the set up, the sequence of events in action and the resulting participant responses. Right away, I can assess if this activity is a good match for the group I’m currently working with.

I also appreciate the depth of questions suggested for the debriefs. This, for me, is where the magic happens in bringing experiences to bear on a team's current issues or situations.  As well, I know I’ll be using some of your “interesting points” and quotes to keep activities relevant and engaging for participants."

Images-1 "Tom Heck has probably thought longer and harder about the mechanics of successful team-building than anyone, and he shares some of this wisdom in this very fine book.  Each exercise is given context, specific directions on how to facilitate and - most importantly - ways to debrief what just happened.  For a facilitator, a teacher or a team leader, this book will significantly add to your repertoire of team-building games."
