By Bruce Hodes, Founder, CMI Before I start, let’s define what a “Stupid Game” is. A Stupid Game is a teambuilding activity used to teach business principles and ideas. In corporate training and development, the games are called “experiential education.” Wow, does that sound fancy.

When It Breaks: Tips for Presentation Mishaps

By Kent Sipes, Training, Communications, and Change Management Consultant, Io Consulting “I don’t know why we’re seeing all these pictures of cows!” My boss, the director of the small boy’s home for which I was in charge of public relations, was increasingly frustrated and confused by the images on the screen.
