Breaking the ice

by The 100 Companies

Are icebreakers worthwhile or frivolous?

While some may dread the pressure of being clever or creative, I enjoy sharing, penetrating the veneer and breaking through the sometimes awkward moments of tackling a tough project or getting to know a new team.

The origin of icebreakers is the large ships that plowed through ice to clear the way for safe passage of other vessels. Similarly, icebreakers are used today to break through the tensions that may accompany building relationships.

Icebreaker exercises can identify personality types, work styles and cognitive assets, uncovering information that can build a more balanced and effective workplace.
