Prayer, study, service, fellowship, fun, decision making, discussion. People get together in groups for all kinds of reasons in all kinds of settings--schools, churches, neighborhoods, volunteer organizations. Some groups are alive and growing; others are dull and dying.In this bright and lively book, Em Griffin focuses on what makes groups good by discussing three types--task groups which have a job to do, relationshp groups which fill our need for community, and influence groups which help people change. He covers such topics as conflict, deviance, persuasion, expectations, leadership and how to have a good discussion.A book for everyone who wants to be in a good group.
