Abstract:
Ice breakers and energizers are the best way to help participants quickly feel connected to a group of people. This high-energy, hands-on workshop will teach attendees how to play some of the best icebreakers out there! Kick off the start of your group with creative ways for participants to connect and get to know one another.

The famous philosopher Plato was once quoted as saying, “I can learn more about a person in an hour of play than a lifetime of conversation.” Behaviors surface naturally through teambuilding and group activities. The activities presented in this workshop will allow facilitators to break the ice and get to know their participants from the start of their program.

Outcomes of the Workshop:
Learn 10 Icebreakers you can utilize right away.

Each participant will receive a detailed handout with write-ups for each of the activities presented.

Enhance the participant experience by learning new ways to get to know their fellow participants.
