Icebreaker for 60+ people
Hi everyone. Does anyone have a FUN icebreaker to kick off a 2-day HR offsite with the entire team? I have 30 minutes. If possible, I’d like to tie in themes around collaboration. Thank you in advance for your ideas. Jennie

Hi @Jennie Shiu I think we could better answer your question if we had a little more information. How many people? Are you looking for something a little physical or would you like more brain work? I really like the red-blue exercise. Or Prisoner's Dilemma. Here is a good summary.
✨ Instant Trust Tricks ✨
Would you buy it? [Upbeat, slightly over-the-top jingle plays in the background] Narrator: [Cheerful, overly enthusiastic tone] "Are you tired of the long, tedious process of building trust the old-fashioned way? 📜 Well, worry no more!" [Sound effect: Record scratch, as the tone shifts to an overly exaggerated, infomercial style] Narrator: "Introducing... ✨Instant Trust Tricks!✨ The lightning-fast solution to all your trust-building needs!" [Background sound: A crowd gasping in mock amazement] Narrator: "With our revolutionary and questionably effective methods, you'll be able to establish trust in no time at all. ⏰ How quick, you ask? So quick, it's almost like it never happened!" [Sound effect: A comical, rapid whoosh] Narrator: "Forget about genuine connection or understanding! With Instant Trust Tricks, who needs depth when you can have instant, superficial rapport!" [Background sound: Laughter and clapping, slightly off-beat] Narrator: "Our tricks include the “Soul-Baring Speed Round" ⚡️⚡️⚡️ Participants are encouraged to share their deepest fears or secrets with the group within the first few minutes of the meeting. It's like diving into the deep end without checking if there's water in the pool.” [Sound effect: Deafening silence while one person is chuckling awkwardly] Narrator: "Or try the “Intimacy Overload Icebreaker" ⚠️⚠️⚠️ This activity involves staring deeply into a partner's eyes and sharing what you believe their life story might be, based on your intuition. It's uncomfortably close and personal – a surefire way to jump past boundaries in record time.” [Sound effect: The crowd swoons with “Oohs” and “Ahhs”] Narrator: "And who can forget the classic “Synchronized Trust Squats" 💪💪💪 A rapid, high-intensity 'workout' where participants are paired up to perform synchronized trust falls and back-to-back storytelling while doing squats. Watch the trust 'build' right before your very eyes!” [Sound effect: Magical swoosh]

This is great. I would probably buy it!
“How do I introduce workshopping to my team..?” Baby steps for anyone feeling paralyzed...
If you’ve been wanting to introduce your team to workshopping but have been struggling to get the ball rolling, I have just the thing for you.. give this a watch and let me know what you think.

@Alexandra Pinegger this was the post I was talking about!
Facilitation is an awsome skill and a great tool, we can use in different context!
Hi every one,🙂I want to share what I took away from yesterday's meeting, with @Jonathan Courtney and @Aj Smart team. During the meeting one of the participants, I can't remenber now, her name correctly, I apologize for this, but she was from Finland! 😍, and shared she use facilitation techniques to train groups in Mindfulness and other disiplins of mind, soul and body connection. What demostrates, that facilitation could be an endless and useful tool. Including these very personal practices. As I commented here a month ago, I had recently deliver my Thesis about Constructivism and Education, because I need the degree that allows me to teach Desing Thinking, Sprints and Visual Thinking, for kids and teenagers. I did my paper about "Heterogeneous Classrooms". You knwow, in the '80s educators, belive heterogeneous classrooms where classes were only students with difficulty understanding or developing skills, were the ones who attended these classes. My work was about demostrating that classrooms, will always be heterogeneous and even more so, in these times. We are all different (and that's great!) with greater or lesser abilities for different subjets. And what I want to share here, is that although I used knowledge that I obtained during the course of the degree, all the main propolsal was done with what I have learned here in @Aj Smart , during the last 4 years. With the Worshopper Playbook, The Facilitation Guidebook and all the stuff you share in videos, classes and meetings. The methodology of facilitation we learn and use here, is much more fun for the students in a class, (children,teenagers or adults) than the traditional ways of teaching. I'm having visible results and teachers told me, they all participate more and have a great time in searching different issues, inside the old school subjects, from a different point of view. Maybe this could be useful for other members of the Facilitators Club, in similar situations. 🤓

Well done! Good Job @Claudia Spinelli
Facilitation Contract!
Hopefully, this will inspire others to keep working to gain clients. I sent a contract to a client for 3 sessions, starting next Tuesday, November 21! This is, now, my third contract with churches and I am looking to expand into other businesses and organizations. I am grateful for this community where I continue to learn about the art and practice of meeting facilitation, growing my business, and expanding my network. I am happy to share my meeting plan and schedule with anyone who may find it helpful. The three sessions will help the church to: 1. Clarify Mission, Vision, and Values 2. Understand Staff Roles and Responsibilities 3. Implement a "Sending" Culture

WooHoo! Go you! This is excellent! Keep it up!
One trait all unsuccessful consultants have (and how to fix it):
Hey Workshoppers, I usually don't cross-post anything from our Workshopper Inner Circle community but this video I made for the group today kinda exploded and created a lot of really interesting conversations. So I said fuck it, let's pop it in here too :) P.S. Applications are still closed right now for joining our Inner Circle community, if they open again any time soon we'll post about it here 👍🏻 **************************************************here's the post*********************************** Hey all! I spend a lot of time coaching or being coached. I spend a lot of time around hyper-successful entrepreneurs and consultants, but also people who are stuck (and stay like that forever). I have some thoughts about what keeps people stuck and what makes people successful. I decided to make a little video about something I think is going to hold a LOT of you back from achieving success. It's a bit of an experiment so lemme know if it's interesting! Cheers, Jonathan

@Jonathan Courtney definately a worthwhile message. I know I have a sense of urgency because I have been quite successful for OTHERS! 1. I lack the confidence to have the urgency FOR myself ... AND 2. I am like squirrel... squirrel...squirrel... which shiny object is going to add the most value for my clients?.... AND 3. I forgot.... squirrel :-)

I love the red/blue communication exercise. Or, the Prisoner's Dilema. provides a great summary. It opens up lines of communication between participants.
