MY FAVOURITE ICE MELTER ACTIVITIES

The foundational idea of using ICE BREAKERS is great, but they can often backfire!
Facilitating a fun activity at the start of a session (you might also know them as “warm ups”, “get-to-know-you games” or “connection activities”) that gets everyone to loosened up and makes the rest of the meeting or event run smoother is a great idea. It can break down barriers, create psychological safety and increase collaboration.
But as soon as you mention “Let’s start with a fun icebreaker” …
- Everyone cringes and thinks “Let’s just get it over with!”
- Participants often feel rushed and it’s very uncomfortable for introverts
- Instead of engaging participants, they turn their cameras off
I mean, the act of “breaking” the ice is jarring and and it often makes a lot of participants uncomfortable.
Imagine what would be possible if, instead of “breaking” the ice,
we take the more careful approach and “melt” the ice instead?
