Icebreakers are a quick and easy option for building rapport among your team members.
Team-building icebreakers invite team members:
- To share interesting information about themselves
- To discover how well they know one another
- Allow for a break from the serious work at hand
- Give your group a reason to laugh and play together
The best team-building icebreaker games provide points of connection, create a shared experience, and break down barriers.
Some icebreaker games are better than others for team-building. Ideally, we want to select a game that works well with a small number of people, leads to deeper relationships, and encourages small groups to work together.
I’ve curated a list of the best team-building icebreaker games from the Women’s Ministry Toolbox site.
You’ll find links and descriptions for each one below.
Don’t forget to prime the pump for a productive meeting by beginning with a team-building icebreaker!
