Getting your workshop off on the right foot is essential. Like the appetizers to the full meal, icebreakers allow participants to get a taste of what is to follow. As with every other part of effective training successful icebreakers result from proper planning and interactive, experiential activities. Icebreakers and warm-up activities are best used for climate setting at the beginning of a training session, before a new topic is introduced, after a lunch break or as the introduction of the second day/session of training.
