Welcome new members with fun meeting icebreakers! | Memberly
Are you planning to welcome new members to your organization? Make them feel comfortable and at ease by starting your meeting with a fun icebreaker! An icebreaker is an activity or game that helps people get to know each other and creates a relaxed atmosphere. Here are some tips for choosing the perfect icebreaker for your event:
What Is An Icebreaker?
An icebreaker is a fun and engaging activity that enables people to get to know each other. It’s a game, joke, or exercise that encourages discussion and helps participants relax and feel comfortable.
When to use an icebreaker?
Use an icebreaker at the beginning of your group meeting, whether it’s in person, online, or a mix of both. An icebreaker can help members get reacquainted and help the leader learn more about everyone.
How to choose an icebreaker?
Consider the group size, friendliness, and time duration when choosing an icebreaker. For a small group, choose a game that lasts longer than a minute or two. For a larger group, opt for a game that doesn’t require lengthy responses from each member. The length of your icebreaker should match the duration of your meeting.
For example, try playing “2 Truths and a Lie” with a small group, or “Would You Rather” with a casual gathering. For a day-long event, go big and break the ice for 45 minutes to an hour. But if you’re just gathering for an hour, keep it short and sweet with a 10-minute icebreaker that won’t leave everyone feeling frosty.
Icebreakers are perfect for welcoming new members to your organization. It’s like rolling out the red carpet for them and creating an atmosphere of joy and kinship. So go ahead and break the ice with some fun and engaging activities that get people chatting and smiling.
