Free Getting To Know You Icebreaker Games

What Are Icebreaker Games?

Icebreaker games are an essential way of introducing participants to each other and reinforcing aspects within a training course or meetings. Icebreakers will ensure participants get to know each other.

Icebreaker games are extremely important in sessions to:

  • Facilitate Introductions
  • Assist Group Formation
  • Introduce Topics, Concepts, Or Themes
  • Prepare Participants For Learning
  • Energize The Group

Icebreaker games are usually employed at the start of a session or at stages where new material or sessions are beginning (e.g., after a break or to energize a group before a new topic is covered).

Most opening activity icebreaker games should last around ten to fifteen minutes – although there is a range of issues that may influence what icebreaker that you will employ.

As someone who’s been involved in training for more than twenty years, I’ve never known a resource that’s as consistently valuable as Oak. I’m always amazed at their willingness to provide purchasers of their complete range of presentations regular updates and new training packages at no additional cost. That makes my purchase become more valuable all the time. And their speed in responding to questions is phenomenal. One of the sessions I often provide is a Training the Trainers workshop. In it, the very first resource I encourage people to purchase is the library of resources from Oak. These packages have made my job infinitely easier, and I recommend them to anyone who’s looking for the highest quality in training materials. Jeffrey L. Buller, Senior Partner at ATLAS Leadership Training

“During the early days of HRD Gateway, a 40,000-member international NGO dedicated to excellence in HRD/HRM, I got to know Des Fitzgerald (Oak Innovation) and his courseware. I become one of his early customers. I had clients in Asia who wanted training in certain areas. Instead of searching through the net for material, I logged onto his site, found what I wanted, bought his programs, and customized them to suit my clients requirements. The process saved me much time. Later, I bought the Oak full set of courses. Over the years, I saw Oak grow from a small operation to what it is today. That takes dedication and focus. Because they allowed me to download updates and new versions of the courseware, I found I did not have to go to another provider for my raw material." GK Lim President, HRD Gateway International

I've developed an alliance with Oak -- a company that has developed a wide assortment of training "modules" that you can download right now. When you download a module you own it forever and have permission to edit it, customize it (logos, etc.) and deliver the module as many times as you like. You receive a Word document, PDF, PowerPoint and comprehensive participant manual and your satisfaction is guaranteed or your money back. The modules are designed for trainers, coaches and consultants looking to increase the range of products and services they can offer their clients. Oak content is also ideal for managers and employees looking to extend their knowledge of organizational, management and employee titles.
