How to NOT get your participants bored in long introductions
And now let's get everyone to introduce himself! Let's make a big round...
How many times have your experienced this in training?
I once had 15 people on the call, I was a participant, and the whole introduction took 2 hours! Can not tell you how frustrating this was!
Not to mention the more introverted persons really hate this thing sooo much!
Can a trainer do this in another way?
Of course! One example (and yes there are many ways how to do this in a fun way) is the one below I experienced myself in a training:
๐Ÿ–๏ธ We were asked to find a pair and introduce each other by answering to 2 questions (which were related to the training topic so not randomly chosen) .
๐Ÿ–๏ธ Each person was making notes about the other person's introduction.
๐Ÿ–๏ธ Each person was then drawing their pair on a pice of paper with the information they got before.๐Ÿ–๏ธ At the end each person was introducing their pair in the big group.
It was fun, connecting people to each other and with the training topic. And fun, did I mention fun?๐Ÿคช In the picture attached my pair , a super funny lady I met. And I still remember all that she told me because I was drawing it and to be able to draw you have to listen really carefully!
Hope is useful for you too!
