Most people have at least one book that they love to read. A book that has had some emotional impact on them and in some way has changed how they think or feel about something.
One way to connect and learn about bonding with your team is by discovering what book(s) they recommend. This team-building activity, “For the Love of Books,” is a simple way to connect with others by sharing a favorite book. An added benefit is that the team gets a list of recommended books to consider.
This team bonding activity is simple and can be done with almost no prep time.
I just used this engagement with a group of 8 facilitators at a retreat. We shared books that were spiritual, business-oriented, and pragmatic. Through this process, we learned more about each other’s interests and values. And we all identified with at least one new book that we wanted to read.
For the Love of Books is a team bonding activity. Simply ask each team member to share one book they would recommend.
