Video Meeting Icebreakers When Meeting With a New Team
Adding new people to your team, organization, and even onboarding new clients can sometimes be an awkward process. Even more so, if you are meeting on video for the first time.
Using fun icebreakers will allow for meeting participants to get to know each other and feel more comfortable participating more quickly. In this post, we provide you with a few video meeting
icebreakers to try in your next online meeting.
Why Break The Ice?
Not only does breaking the ice in a meeting make getting to know each other a little easier and with a fun twist, but it allows people to be authentic with one another. Being authentic with each
other for that moment will bring a sense of comfort to the conversation early on.
Doing this at the beginning of an onboarding meeting with a new customer can be a good way to build faster relationships over video conferencing. It also takes the edge off if using the
technology for the first time. Using online meeting software can be intimidating to some users, so "breaking the ice" lets them loosen up at the start of the video call.
Start by saying your name and the role you play within the company or team before answering your "icebreaker" question. We've put together a list of questions you can use as a guide. If you have
