Ice-Breakers

Ice-breakers are activities which invite your group to interact, share and generate lots of laughter. Ice-breakers help people get to know one another, strengthen relationships and have fun. When designed appropriately, they are always conducted in a non-threatening manner, are success-oriented and require minimal verbal and decision-making skills.   As described in Serious Fun, the latest book by Mark Collard, all successful ice-breakers reflect most, but hopefully ALL, of the following five criteria:

  1. Fun
  2. Non-threatening
  3. Highly Interactive
  4. Simple & Easy to Understand
  5. Success-Oriented
  So, if an activity or experience you are considering does not tick off 3, 4 or (hopefully) all 5 of these attributes and you're still calling it an 'ice-breaker,' don't do it!   Ice-breakers aim to break the 'ice' that typically limits or inhibits the interactions of a group of people who may or may not know each other very well. Common occurrences of 'ice' may include little or no talking, poor eye contact, reluctance to make physical contact, lots of standing around, lack of initiative, absence of trust, etc. A good ice-breaker acknowledges these facts, and intervenes. When presented appropriately, with full regard to the needs of the group, an ice-breaker will reduce, minimise (and hopefully eliminate) the impact of the 'ice' and invite the group to create a more productive atmosphere, one that is conducive to working together or achieving whatever the purpose of the group is. In essence, an ice-breaker prepares your group for its purpose. Without this necessary preparation - or priming - your group is less likely to be as 'successful' as it could.
