Let’s break the ice, you’re going to ICONA for your business retreat, and you’re about to have one of the best getaways that mix business and fun, beachside! Our resort hotels in NJ, offer the comfort of accommodations and access to our beautiful meeting facilities. Here are three fun icebreakers to kick-start your business at the beach!
Ready for Action
Get ready to rock at your meeting because you’ll want to try Extreme Rock, Paper, Scissors! This game needs nothing but spirit! Break it into teams of two, where opponents battle against one another. The winner of each round advances on to the next set of two, while whoever loses the round follows the winner cheering them on. That process continues until there are only two people left with big cheering squads rooting for them or their opponent!
Get to Team Building
If you’re looking for something that alludes to team building, we’ve got the perfect activity with Unique and Shared. Break your group off into smaller teams of 3-5, hand out paper and pens, then instruct them to write down 3-5 things that make their group similar. We recommend that you try to avoid genetic traits and have your group dive deeper. Next read the traits out loud with the whole team. For the “unique” part of the activity, that same group will come up with 3-5 unique traits or characteristics of everyone in their group, which will also be read aloud. This game allows for everyone to see what is similar and unique to every person in the company!
Asking a question before your meeting to get everyone talking and awake is a great way to start your day! Whether they’re funny or not, you’ll love being able to get to know your coworkers! We compiled a list of a few questions you could have your team ask one another; you can also tailor subjects to what you’re doing that day!
- Who is your favorite Superhero/heroine and why?
- Who is your hero in your life?
- What is your favorite summertime activity?
- What is your favorite ice cream flavor and what flavor best describes you and why?
- Name 3 locations you would like to travel to and why?
