To everyone, except the most excited & outgoing few, icebreakers are a necessary evil. They are supposed to dissolve awkwardness, but forced icebreaker games often make an event even more tense. It doesn’t have to be this way! Whether you’re looking for icebreakers for meetings, workshops or training sessions, we have you covered with everything from fun ice breaker games to more in-depth ice breaker activities. The activities below are primarily designed for live meetings, but if you look for remote activities, we’ve got you energizers and icebreakers for online meetings, too!
Let’s dig in with ice breaker ideas to help you make any workshop, training session or meeting a success!
Purpose of Icebreakers
So how do you avoid creating a frustrating, patronizing ice breaker game that won’t make participants feel like they are wasting their time and why should you try?
The benefits of icebreakers far outweigh any negatives. They can take care of introductions in a much more fun way than just simply going around the room and stating what’s on your business card. They can make people remember names easier & help start conversations. When done right, icebreakers can quickly build a sense of community, set the tone for the upcoming session & give participants ownership of the learning ahead. They are also a great way for people to share their expectations, and for facilitators to introduce the topic of the day through the game. It helps participants to loosen up, understand each other more and enable better collaboration and networking. Last, but not least, it is a surefire way to energize the group and have everyone focused and ready to go.
Categories of Icebreaker Activities
Company retreat to conference workshop, from strategy session to new hire. These icebreakers don’t require people to reveal too much personal information too soon and allow room for introverts too.
The best ice breakers are tailored for a particular situation: ice breakers for meetings or team icebreakers often have a different design than workshop ice breakers and finding the right one for your purpose can help them be successful.
We’ve found these ice breakers incredibly useful & would love to hear about your experiences if you give any of them a try!
In order to help you find what you look for, we grouped them into the following categories:
Ice Breaker Games to Get to Know Each Other
Whenever you have a group of people participating in a meeting, project or event, they need to get to know each other to be comfortable in working together. This does not only mean just memorizing names, but also involves getting the facilitator or leader of the session familiar with the group members. Get to know each other games and team ice breakers are a great way to begin, especially with a new group.
5 Star Customer Reviews - What Are Clients Say
My agency was tasked with putting on a major event within a short turn around and ARS was there to support. Their professionalism and promptness was great and their gaming equipment provided was enjoyable. The attendees enjoyed everything!!!
I had a great experience with ARS for our company picnic. They were responsive and professional. As we got closer to our event, we communicated more often which was very helpful. They were flexible in working with me in the event that the weather was unfavorable.
On the day of the event, they arrived timely, were available and visible throughout the day.
