Kill your ego icebreaker game
by Shakil Imran Badar
I was conducting a team building course and used this icebreaker game.
I asked the participants to close all their work and ready to go to outside.
They had no knowledge what is it for.
I then asked them to take some roses and give them to four class people like a security guard, office boy sweeper and so on.
They were asked if could understand the significance on the act. "They had just torn their egos("I"s)
Everyone was quite impressed by the simple way of leaving their egos behind when working as a team and individual.
Comment from Lyndsay - it strikes me that this icebreaker would work in Pakistan or India but would not translate readily where a class system is less rigid, in, for example, the UK. An interesting icebreaker nonetheless, about overcoming stereotypes or prejudices and acting differently to your normal habitual way.
