Corporate Entertainment… Here Are A Few Ice Breakers To Get the Ball Rolling At Your Next Corporate Event
Top 6 Ice Breaker Activities
My Favorite Team Building Icebreaker:
1) Find 3 Things in Common
In this ice breaker, you find three things that you have in common with the other participants in your group. You start by telling them (the Group you are in) What you like to do, what foods you go out to eat, What’s the last Movie you watched, How far back in you time can you remember, just stop and think of ways to finds out if you have something in common with the people sitting near you. Don’t use these simple cop-outs: like… we all have hands, we all have arms, we all have legs, we all have on pants, and we all wear underwear. Start talking and find out what makes you all tick and find out which one’s you have in common.
2) Meet and Greet Ice Breakers for Corporate Entertainment
Simple questions or discussion points to use For a Meet and Greet…
Describe how and when you came to work at this company.
Share your biggest current challenge you are experiencing at work.
Share two things about yourself that you think no one at the table may know.
Describe a positive work or non-work interaction you have experienced.
Tell your coworkers something you appreciate about your company.
Tell your coworkers what you appreciate about your coworkers.
Share what you like about your current job.
Share the funniest or most fun situation you have experienced at work.
Talk about the best boss you ever had. What was it that set them apart?
Are you a cat person, dog person, bird person, or gerbil person? What is your favorite pet and why?
What was your favorite vacation you’ve taken and what made it stand out in your memory?
If you could pick your birthday dinner, what would you choose to eat?
3) One Word Ice Breaker
This is becoming my new favorite at Corporate Entertainment events for ice breakers. After using it for a couple of years, I find that it works well in every meeting, training, and team building session…
The word is EMPOWERING… ask the group, “what comes to your mind first when you think about empowering?
4) I Use To ask People, “What Do You Do?”… Now I Like To Ask, “What Is Your Passion?”
The answer to this can be quite interesting.
5) Fun and Funny Ice Breakers
Want to laugh with participants as you break the ice at the beginning of a training class, team building session, or meeting?
Here are some fun things to ask and to just make them think about…
If you could choose an imaginary friend, who would you choose and why?
If you could choose your age forever, what age would you choose and why?
If you were to create a slogan for your life, what would it be? (Example: May you find your quest and live up to your dreams.)
You can’t go wrong with ice breaker fun questions. You can trust that when you use questions like these, your participants will generate the fun.
6) Speed Meeting Ice Breaker
You’ve heard about Speed Dating… where you have one set of people stay at their table and the other set move from table to table all evening. You’re give a short amount of time at each table 1 to 3 minutes. This is modeled after that idea. It lets you meet a large number of meeting participants in just a short amount of time. Get an old timer and go for a Speed Meet & Greet!
