National Challenge Course Practitioners Symposium - Al & Chris are "Con-Friends" of this yearly conference in Boulder Colorado. Great people. Great learning!
Mousetrap Activities - Sam Sikes, in his book, Raptor and Other Team Building Activities, details three different team building activities using mousetraps as props: Mousetrap Inc., Mousetrap Towers and the Mousetrap Trust Sequence. Risky? For some. Manageable? Of course. (Al told a story about mousetraps - one of her participants told her this was an opportunity for her to be brave.)
Brene' Brown's Podcast - Such an amazing person. Her podcast content does no disappoint!
Crucial Conversations: Tools for Talking When Stakes Are High - This is a book Chris mentioned in relation to "Silence or Violence" and "The Path to Action."
Start with Why: How Great Leaders Inspire Everyone to Take Action, by Simon Sinek - The idea of sharing the 'why' behind what we do was mentioned during the episode. This book brings more clarity to why we start with why.
Distinguishing Your Program (What Are We Calling This Stuff?) - An OnTeamBuilding Blog post about how we 'name' what we do to help others understand.
The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho - Al mentioned this book and how it can help us, as team builders (and humans), discover our own story. As Al said, this book has nothing to do with team building, but it does have everything to do with life - it's a thought provoking adventure.
Ask Powerful Questions: Create Conversations That Matter by Will Wise & Chad Littlefield - An Al recommendation for deepening our processing skills.
Exploring Principles of Practice - This is an OnTeamBuilding Blog post about reflecting on what we do as team builders. Is our current practice still the best for us? What do we want to do to improve or change our practice? Where do we find information to inform change?
This podcast is another facet in a network of resources being developed in an ongoing effort to help team builders, all over the world, learn and grow:
