    Team Building

    The team building resources presented on our site come from Building Dynamic Groups, a kit developed by three OSU Extension professionals: Barbara Brahm, Beth Flynn, and Nancy Stehulak.  The activites they developed can be used with staff, committees, boards, collaborations, partnerships, coalitions, ad hoc groups, task forces, and other groups to build their inner relationships, become dynamic, and function at their best. 

    Funding for this project was provided through the Community Development Group of Ohio State University Extension
