It is likely that you have been in a meeting or lecture where there were awkward silences, people who don't participate, and a general feeling of disconnectedness. Icebreakers can help infuse some much-needed energy into these unproductive meetings.
Icebreakers are little exercises that help relax tension and loosen up a formal atmosphere. Starting a meeting or brainstorm with an icebreaker can help get the creative juices flowing and get everyone in a mood to participate.
An icebreaker should not exceed 15 minutes. After all, you do want to get something done, don't you? You should also pay attention to the age of your group and the skills required to complete the icebreaker. You don't want to make an elderly gentleman hop around the room like a bunny or ask a 5 year old to solve a complex puzzle.
