Icebreaker Ideas for Your Next Workshop

Workshops are the perfect place to acquire new knowledge and meet other people. Some people are outspoken and free, while others are shy and reserved. The perfect way to get attendees to interact with each other is through icebreakers. Icebreakers are warm-up exercises that bring people together by making them more familiar with each other. Are you planning to host a workshop or seminar? Check out a few icebreaker ideas for your next group session:

Two Truths and a Lie

Two Truths and a Lie is a great introductory icebreaker. The game allows your attendees to learn more about each other. The rules to this icebreaker are very simple – a person tells two truths and one lie; it is up to the other attendees to determine the true statements and cast out the lie. This icebreaker is a great way to learn a little about everyone’s background. After identifying the lie, the attendees can each other more questions that they may be curious about. This game can be played in a small or large group.

Words and Songs

After an introductory icebreaker, depending on the size of your workshop, break your attendees into small groups. Words and Songs is also a very simple icebreaker. Create a list of popular words used in songs such as love, win, yes, truth, etc. Each team will be competing against each other for points, the team with the highest points wins a special surprise. Each team has thirty seconds to connect the popular word back to a song. If the majority of the team knows the song and performs it correctly, they get a point. If only a few members of the team know the song and everyone else mumbles, they don’t receive a point. This is a great icebreaker that will make everyone laugh, bond, and get comfortable with each other.

Who is It?

Who is It, is a great icebreaker for a weekend workshop. On the second day, everyone should be well acquainted with each other. The host should pass out blank pieces of paper and get everyone to write a random fact about themselves. After everyone writes down their fact, they should fold the paper and the host should collect them all in a box. After everyone is finished, the host will randomly pull out a paper and read them for the attendees to guess who wrote it. This is another great bonding method that will create meaningful interactions for everyone.
