When you hear you’ll be kicking off a meeting or an event with an icebreaker activity, how do you feel? Excited to share something? Nervous your answer won’t be interesting enough? Or maybe you just think… “Really? Again?” No matter your feeling, you should know that the benefits of icebreakers make them more than worth the time.
Icebreakers can work wonders for diffusing team anxiety. These quick activities also go a long way toward promoting psychological safety. They encourage a creative atmosphere in which team members feel more free to speak their minds and question ideas without fear of humiliation. Icebreakers also help foster trust and respect across groups while building up team cohesion. And feeling more comfortable with each other ultimately means you’ll produce better work together. What’s not to love?
