Set the tone with a great start.
A great energetic start to any training program is crucial simply because it sets the tone to whatever comes next. If it starts with a fun, energetic activity to set the tone, makes your job easier in keeping it that way for the rest of the day.
One of the best ways to get your class off to a great start, make a good first impression,build an element of surprise, stimulate interest and get participants excited about your program is to start off with a good tried and tested ice breaker.
Not every ice breaker you use have to be linked to your content but since time in the training room is too precious to waste on anything unrelated, the big advice about choosing an icebreaker is to choose one that relates to or serves your training topic. It may take a little more time and effort to customize or design an interesting activity that’s in line with your topic but if you do, it will surely pay off.
Below are some ideas for ice-breakers you can use to kick-off your training sessions.
