Ice Breakers – Tips & Tricks

The objective of ice breakers is to get the participants interacting. But, in doing so, one needs to be careful to avoid emotive issues, like (let’s say…) politics! Such topics can funnel extreme emotions, which are best avoided in ice-breaker sessions. Use fun questions, which will let people think and open up. Let Khojees suggest someicebreaker questionsthat could warm up participants for a more engaging interaction.

Here goes….

  • If you were an object, what would you be and why?
  • If you were a cartoon, which one would you be and why?
  • What is the weirdest thing you have ever done / eaten?
  • Have you ever been told you look like someone famous? (This question looks simple but funny answers can come up!)
  • One thing about you that nobody knows?
  • If you could have an endless supply of any food, what would you get?
  • Who is your hero? (a parent, a celebrity, an influential person in one’s life)
  • If they made a movie of your life, what would it be about and which actor would you want to play you?
  • If you could visit any place in the world, where would you choose to go and why?
  • What’s your dream job?
  • Tell us about a unique or quirky habit of yours.
  • If you had to describe yourself using three words,they would be…
  • If you could be anybody besides yourself, you would be…
  • Biggest trouble you’ve got yourself into?
  • Anything you’ll absolutely refuse to do under any circumstance?
  • One thing you’ve never done(again looks simple, but people will come up with hilarious answers)
  • If you were a superhero, who would you be, and what would your superpower be.

Unlike any other topic of discussion to get people talking, these icebreakers will ensure participation of every member in a non-threatening environment.These questions can also give you an insight about their personality. As a facilitator this will enable you to customize training according to their needs and personality types.
