So, Duct Tape Teambuilding Games is a book that won't make it to my bookshelf - it'll stay right in my game bag next to the roll of tape.

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!

More praise for Duct Tape Teambuilding Games!

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."
