Icebreakers can be either intimidating, funny, or even just intriguing. They allow you the potential to learn something new about someone else. Someone you are getting to know, or someone you thought you knew well, but may still learn something new about. Either way, utilizing icebreaker questions to start off your next corporate gathering is a no brainer, especially if you’re going to be digging into a more serious topic, or if the group consists of people who don’t know each other very well. Allowing the option for guests to find common ground with another is a great way to open up for more sincere and honest collaboration.
Here are just a good handful of questions you might want to start your meeting with to break the ice!
What activity outside of work helps you to destress?
What is your favorite movie that you could watch on repeat?
If you were in the Olympics, what sport would you be competing in?
If you could travel back in time, what time period would it be? Why?
What is the best vacation you’ve ever had?
What is your best recipe that you can make?
Favorite ice cream flavor!
If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?
Do you have any pets? If so, what?
What is your favorite TV series to binge watch?
Although those were only a few questions, there are so many out there to choose from. No matter the group, there are always at least a few good questions you could ask to help loosen things up. Icebreaker questions are a great way to help those attending feel better connected to one another, and can certainly better enhance your corporate gathering.
