"Moving Beyond Icebreakers offers us a way out of the all-too-familiar and much-too-painful experience of unproductive and unsatisfying meetings. This book -- packed as it is with practical and useful activities, exercises, and advice -- points the way toward meetings that bring groups together, accomplish goals, and prove that hard work and fun can and should go together."
