Games That Teach: Experiential Activities for Reinforcing Training
By Steve Sugar

They do not want to hear you lecture. They do not want to read an instruction guide. So how can you tell them what they need to know? You want bright smiles, not bored sighs. You want them to have fun, but you want them to learn as well. GAMES are your answer! Games are not just for kids. Games can help people learn business ideas: games can teach.

Steve Sugar's adaptable designs put an and to tired, scripted business games. Sometimes you have many games, but none of them ever seems to suit the occasion. Sometimes games suit the occasion, but are so rigid that the participants are bored before they have scarcely even begun. With Sugar's help, your games will always be both fitting and new. These designs are enjoyable, but they are also "games that teach"?
