Interactive group games and activities are one of the most powerful (and attractive) ways to help people connect. And research clearly shows that the most successful programs in the world are those which intentionally build trusting and healthy relationships.

In this entertaining and simple how-to guide, Mark Collard distils 30+ years of experience to help you harness the power of group games to have fun and leave your group feeling engaged, valued and meaningfully connected to one another. All without props.

  • Know the difference between an ‘ice-breaker’ and an ‘ice-maker;’
  • Understand why the latest research demands that we help our groups connect first before we deliver our content;
