Just come back from my action learning set and we had another great ice breaker game to start us off on our meeting. You will need a rope sling or loop, big enough to slip over the heads and bodies of your colleagues.
- Ask everyone to form a circle and hold hands.
- Place the loop between 2 people (need to break hands for a moment) and then instruct the participants to pass the loop all the way around the group without letting it fall to the floor and without breaking hands or stepping out of the loop
- Participants will need to wriggle away and help each other get the loop around the circle. It's good fun and breaks the ice! Once they have done it once you can time it and see how fast they can do it.
Here's a great game I recently came across though it is more for an established group than a new group.
Split your group into teams - you will need at least 2 teams. Allocate every team to another team and than ask each team to write a story about the other team using their talents and positive attributes.
- First, get teams to make a list of the team members they are portraying as characters for their story.
- Make sure teams can't hear each other during the writing.
- Allow about 20 minutes to write the story.
- When everyone is ready get each team in turn to read out the story.
Ask groups for feedback and question what it was like to hear themselves being described as part of a story.
Were people surprised at their chosen attributes and talents ? Do they see themselves as others do?
You can use this game as a corporate ice breaker or a group game for teams that know each other fairly well
