Question from a listener:
Do you have ideas for icebreakers? Or other ideas to help a team get to know each other better on a personal level? I want to build my team’s relationships with one another (and myself), and I’m open to ideas to go about accomplishing that goal.
How to break the ice with four different methods:
1. Introduce yourself to the person next to you (or to the group) but say nothing about work.
2. Ask a question of the other party (or group) about what you want to gain from the meeting, retreat, or event.
4. See the bottom of this page for 80 networking questions from executive coach Vance Caesar.
