We are excited to welcome Sofia to present on Icebreakers to Kick Start Brainstorming.
Icebreakers are often awkward and dreaded activities but if done right, can be incredibly valuable. When facilitating training, workshops, brainstorming sessions and team meetings, icebreakers help us to not only get better acquainted, but can also help to generate meaningful, lively and creative discussions. Oftentimes, the expectation of participants is to share ideas. This is where ideation comes into play. Ideation is the creative process of generating, developing, and communicating new ideas. To encourage thinking outside the box, choosing the right icebreaker to help kick-start the brainstorming process is critical. Sofia Arisheh will demonstrate how to successfully choose, introduce and facilitate icebreakers.
In this roundtable you will:
• Understand the benefits of introducing ideation icebreakers within your teams
• Identify how to choose the right icebreaker for your next meeting or training session
• Examine techniques and instructions on how to best facilitate group icebreakers
• Review logistics (time allotment, group size, instructions) of 5 icebreaker examples
