Description

Have you ever been in a meeting where energy levels are low, people are disengaged or bored? Or maybe people feel awkward because they have just been thrown together and do not know each other. In either case a good icebreaker can change the dynamics in the room and engage everyone. In this course we review eight proven methods to energise your meetings and fire people up. The icebreakers are short, practical and fun. You can use them in brainstorms, training sessions, committees, discussions and business meetings. They motivate and stimulate people. These techniques will help you to run much more effective meetings because people are more enthusiastic and engaged. Participants will be glad that you involved them early and broke the ice!
