A big thank you to Nick Dunn for co-leading the icebreakers and energizers Culture Chat. As always, his energy was infectious and we learned a thing or two. We often use icebreakers and energizers as a way to get to know one another, facilitate discussion, put our audience at ease, and/or to break up the routine of a training. The types of icebreakers vary based on the audience, material covered, and time available. But how do you facilitate participant buy-in? Do you purposively include activities that require participation but less self-revelation, if so, share your icebreakers. Any other thoughts? Comment below.
