Icebreakers at work Vol 1
These 5 icebreakers have been put together to liven up your meetings, networking events and off site sessions.
If you ask anyone about their team meetings they will usually give you that ‘oh no' expression - as in ‘oh-no-our-meetings-bore-us-to-tears.' Which is such a shame.
Look at the brain power that is sitting around a room during a meeting. Look at the hourly rates of those people and their time sitting around being bored when they could better use that time meeting clients or whatever. A lot of brain power and money is also being wasted if the chair of the meeting is a ‘droner' or a person who drills down into absolute minutae.
- How about kicking off all your meetings with an ‘icebreaker?'
- How about getting some energy into the attendees?
- How about making sure that whoever ‘chairs' your meetings is a person who wants to move fast and get out of that room?
- You can use icebreakers at the start of a conference; after the sleepy lunch time session and even before you kick off ‘break-out' sessions
The only limit on the use of icebreakers is the limit we put on them. Have fun - life's too short to be miserable.
