Ice breaking at the beginning of the workshop/meeting
The participants (and the moderator) get's to know something deeper about the personalities of the group.
- All kind of stuff: Ball, sunglasses, pepper shaker, toys, curios objects, a red nose, ...
Ask the participants to just pick one object (not thinking to much about what to pick) out of the "magic box".
You as a moderator start.
- who you are and
- why you've chosen the object and
- additionally what could be the connection between object and the topic of the workshop?
