馃ザ The best icebreakers - and why they fail (plus my alternatives)
You鈥檙e looking for an activity to kick off your meeting, workshop or training, but you鈥檙e tired of the same old icebreaker activities you鈥檝e seen on every list?
You鈥檙e in the right place! 馃槉
I believe that most #icebreaker activities are not effective for most groups.
So, in this first post of my #FixMyIcebreaker series, I will explain why they don't work and provide alternative activities that work so much better (including facilitator tips).
If you鈥檙e looking for fresh and new activities, check out my full post here: https://www.jankeck.com/best-icebreakers-alternatives-1/
In today's post, I am fixing:
路 Fun Facts 馃お
路 Two Truths & One Lie 馃ぅ
路 Never Have I Ever 馃檯鈥嶁檪锔
And here are some comments the first few readers have left already:
"I've bookmarked your article!"
"馃挕I had a great 鈥渁ha鈥 moment with his analysis of 鈥淭wo Truths and One Lie.鈥 I have used this one in the past, but he made me rethink it, and I鈥檓 taking it out of my repertoire."
"Great ideas! I like how you can adapt Show Yourself to the session content by changing the questions."
If you like this type of content, let me know what other icebreaker activities I should fix next 馃憞
