Icebreakers are quick, easy activities that are used to welcome people, encourage participation, bring people together, and enhance teamwork.
In The Big Book of Icebreakers, author Edie West presents 55 creative activities for virtually every workplace situation, including:
- Icebreakers to enhance participation and creativity at staff meetings and training sessions
- Ice breakers to introduce new coworkers
- Ice breakers for team building
- Ice breakers for fun and stress relief.
To help you find the best icebreaker for your specific needs, West provides a useful matrix. For example, to introduce new team members you might choose the Arrivals and Departures icebreaker, the High-Note icebreaker, or one of 12 others.
You’ll turn to The Big Book of Icebreakers again and again as new and challenging situations arise in the service center.
