Virtual Ice-Breaker - 1's & 2's
Time: 5 minutes
Audience size: 5-No Limit
Prep: everyone needs their webcams on for this to work, and you will need pictures loaded on a slide deck to share.
Special Notes: This is a great ice-breaker for any zoom meeting, new teams or ones who know each other well.
Set Up: Have a slide like the one below or set up the Ice-breaker by telling the audience that you are going put up pictures and everyone in the meeting has to hold up 1 finger or two based on their answers.
This is all about picking funny and somewhat confrontational pictures so you get good reactions.
All you have to do is hit the slides, and sell the sizzle of what makes it funny, and watch the webcams for reactions.
A great tip is after each one call out a few people to say why they voted that way (especially calling on people who are laughing or have strong opinions.
See below for example slides, as an example the first one you as a facilitator are asking if they prefer their ice-Cream in a cone or cup. (to kick it off I usually take a hard stance on one or the other)
This Ice-breaker gets everyone laughing, moving and engaging. You could always tie a business objective to it as well if you wanted to wrap it around the meeting’s topic or something as well.
