Book Description

Review ?Time is a great gift. The Pfeiffer Handbooks are legendary for good reason, and the ready-made learning activities in this book can save facilitators countless hours of instructional-development work. Best of all, editor Jack Gordon has done a wonderful job of organizing them (at last!) in a way that makes the right activity easy to find.? --Ron Zemke, author, Service Magic: The Art of Amazing Your Customers Read more From the Back Cover Since the ten-volume set was first published in 1974, the Pfeiffer Handbook of Structured Experiences has become a legend in the training industry. The new Pfeiffer Handbook of Structured Experiences: Learning Activities for Personal Development and the companion volume, Learning Activities for Intact Teams and Workgroups, contain timeless experiential learning activities that are as relevant to today?s learners as to those of decades past. These two books offer the entire ten-volume collection of original Handbook activities in a convenient and easy-to-use format. Learning Activities for Personal Development includes more than 100 learning designs that target personal and professional growth and development. The experiences are organized according to the level of participant involvement, beginning with relatively low-risk activities, and progressing to highly involving exercises. With the emphasis on individual development, there is no requirement that learners work together on the same team or for the same organization. Consequently, these designs are as much at home in the consultant?s toolkit as they are on the shelf of the in-house training professional. A must-have resource for corporate trainers and consultants, Learning Activities for Personal Development Includes more than 100 ready-to-use training designs with clearly-stated outcomes. Offers robust and proven instructional-design principles to help create structured experiences. Includes a special section with targeted exercises that promote facilitator growth and development. Learning Activities for Personal Development has a unique two-part design. The facilitator?s notes are bound into the book, while the participant materials and session handouts are contained on the accompanying CD-ROM for easy printing, duplication, and customization.
