Are you ready to break the ice?

When facilitating or training I often use a form of icebreaker to ease people into learning.

And whilst mention of term icebreaker can at times invite a rolling of the eyes, any occasion where I experimented with no icebreaker felt strained and uncomfortable.

And hey, icebreakers don’t have to be lengthy. There’s a lot to be said for a short ‘n’ sweet exercise.

In today’s video we look at how to draw a symbol for icebreaker.
