When NOT to use Meeting Icebreakers

Meeting Icebreakers – Do They Still Have a Place in Your Meetings or Workshops?

Running an meeting icebreaker activity poses lots of challenges.

To Break, Or Not To Break…

That is the question.

Well, it is for a lot of people starting out in facilitation anyway.

Episode 11 of Facilitation TV looks at a well known facilitation technique… meeting icebreakers.

Have you ever spent precious preparation time and effort deciding on which icebreaker to use, only to have it flop spectacularly?

It sucks because it was your first chance in the session to get some energy flowing and score an early win but the participants found the activity cumbersome and abstract.

Not the start you were after right?

Join us on Facilitation TV with new hosts Margo O’Byrne and Will Bessen as we discuss icebreaker activities, when NOT to use them and which ones work best.

Hint – it’s not about making your meeting fun!

PS – you’ll get some handy tips on working with Gen Y people in your meetings.
