A picture is worth a thousand words
icebreaker.online is one of my favorite tools for online workshops & coaching: I usually use it to start the session. For choosing an icebreaker question, I am often creative and ask, for example:
- What is your mood right now?
- How did you perceive the collaboration today?
- What do you wish for the coming year?
My experience with this kind of online icebreakers:
- the participants don’t answer mechanically but really feel inside themselves.
- when the participants then share why they chose this image, they answer honestly and show a little more of themselves.
- when people show a little more of themselves, in my experience there is a stronger connection.
- this connectedness then leads to a better mood and more constructive collaboration.
Coach & Lean Management Consultant at BMW
My participants & clients are enthusiastic.
I’m so grateful to have icebreaker.online these days. This weekend we had our General Assembly, also discussing online tools for supervision and coaching online. After three days of Zoom meeting, I moderated the wrap-up by using online icebreaker. We were able to share 24 pictures and reflect what the 3 days had brought to the participants. Everybody was very enthusiastic and we were able to do it in 25 minutes. I love it.
