It’s used to help people go deeper into themselves or to break open a “stuck” group.In the mask drawing they can include their characteristics, dreams, interests, weaknesses, strengths, basically anything that explains the individual to his/her team members in a non threatening manner.Then, I keep on digging deeper with follow up questions that doesn’t let the boss off the hook but forces him/her to explain their actions and address the consequences.3.Personality Tests Personality tests like MBTI or Belbin are great, non intrusive ice breakers, in which team members get an insight in the personality type and preferred styles of their colleagues.This speed meeting icebreaker provides a similar experience for participants at a training meeting or a team building session.You might even want to think about the activity as corporate speed dating.This exercise as well as the next two exercises can’t be done straight of the bat and require some team gestation time.3.
Even your shyest or most uncomfortable participant can manage to talk with another person for two minutes.
Hard Talk One of my favorite and often the most impactful team building activities is HARDtalk in which the leader of the team is exposed to hard hitting questions.
The key is the first questions, which needs to be the toughest one, the one that everybody wants to know the answer for and the one that people gossip about. As the audience gasps and holds their breath at the audacity of me to ask the question everybody wants asked but nobody dares to.
So, attendees meet a large number of people in a short period of time, The goal, of course, is to find one or more people with whom you'd like to spend more time on an actual date.
Participants exchange names and contact information during the two minutes so that they can connect with the people who appealed to them following the speed dating session.
