Frequently Asked Questions

What is the purpose of ice breakers?

The purpose of ice breaker activities is to create a friendly atmosphere for the participants. It is a way to break the ice, hence the name “ice breaker”. You can use ice breakers to learn more about a new team member or kick off important meetings like training sessions, workshops, or team events.

They’re also an excellent opportunity to learn more about the participants, get to know them better and develop deeper relationships - especially in remote settings where “water cooler” conversations don't typically come as naturally as in in-person settings.

What makes a good ice breaker?

A good ice breaker should be fun, easy, interactive, and engaging. It should promote conversation and get the participants talking. If at the end of an ice breaker session your participants have learnt something new about each other, feel more relaxed and comfortable than before joining the activity, you've done a good job!
