IVP Print On Demand Title People get together for all kinds of reasons: prayer, study, service, fun, discussion, fellowship, decision-making. What makes some groups lively and growing, while others are dullsville? Griffin describes three different kinds of groups (task groups, relationship groups, influence groups) and explores what makes each kind successful.

Publishers Description
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.

Reviews - What do customers think about Getting Together?

Thank You  Sep 5, 2007
This book is a very good compilation of different aspects. What is a leader, what is communication, what is a group. Very nice to read so many aspects concerning good groups.

It has a lot of Christian references but the experienced (non Christian) reader is able to read around this.

I think this is a must read for everybody that wants to communicate or wants to operate in a group.
The Christian Worker's Friend  Apr 10, 2007
Yes!! To all those pastors and others who try to lead church meetings, Bible studies, or other discussions, and wonder why the people are sitting with glazed looks in their eyes - buy this book! You will be doing yourself a favor, but even more you will be doing a favor to the owners of all those glazed looks.
Great Resource!  Jul 24, 2000
Excellent book on group dynamics, leadership, conflict resolution, decision-making, and much, much more. Fun to read with highly practical applications. It should be in the hands of every small group leader and committee member. Guaranteed to build teams for positive influence and high impact.
