Team Building with Puzzles is filled with powerful, portable activity tools that can help you engage your participants in meaningful learning. You can present the puzzles taught in this course to any size group in just about any space. You'll have access to downloadable puzzles and puzzle kits so you can start leading what you learn right away. There are six main Lessons and one final SUPER BONUS Lesson within the course. Dr. Cavert will share why he uses puzzles, how he uses them, and the insightful conversations puzzles can open up with your groups. Let's learn something together. I look forward to seeing you (virtually) in the course!
“I create ready-to-use resources and trainings for busy team builders eager to learn and grow so they feel confident delivering programs that exceed the expectations of their participants.”
I have been actively educating and team building with groups of all ages for more than 30 years. I am an author, speaker and professional trainer in the area of experiential adventure-based education focusing on how activities within this field help to develop and enhance pro-social behaviors and emotional intelligence – especially with youth populations.
Currently I am a freelance trainer, writer, and creative content developer for the team builder resource sites, FUNdoing.com and ChrisCavert.com Before embarking on my quest for a location-independent lifestyle as a freelance educator I was an assistant professor in the Health and Physical Education department at Northeastern Illinois University in Chicago.
I hold a Physical Education degree from the University of Wisconsin-LaCrosse, a Master’s Degree in Experiential Education from Minnesota State University at Mankato, specializing in curriculum development, and an Educational Doctorate degree in Curriculum & Instruction from Northern Arizona University. My doctoral focus and dissertation research related to challenge course practitioner preparation in the field of adventure-based education.
I have had the privilege to author or coauthor sixteen adventure-based related activity books. My books focus on sharing activities that help educators, in many different fields, use experiential adventure-based education to encourage pro-social behaviors and emotional intelligence in the groups that they work with.
Some of my first writings were published in the bestselling “Chicken Soup for the Soul” series books by Jack Canfield and Mark Victor Hansen. Some of my experiential activities have appeared in works by Karl Rohnke, Dr. Jim Cain, Sam Sikes, Michelle Cummings, and Laurie Frank. I have also been honored with the Karl Rohnke creativity award presented yearly by the Association for Experiential Education.
I lead trainings, interactive team building programs and workshops both nationally and internationally bringing the activities in my books to life. I work with Educators, Challenge Course Practitioners, Therapeutic Counselors, Social Workers, Recreational Staff, Camp Staff, Youth Workers, and Human Resources Professionals.
