Hold the Cheese

Three icebreakers that aren't cheesy

Here are three icebreaker questions I use that can actually give you some insight into a person's character and are interesting to discuss. And they're not so deep or intense that you can't use them in a new group. Try one at your next group meeting.

  1. Tell us a story from your childhood involving you and your best friend.
  2. What would you do for a living if you weren't doing what you're doing now?
  3. What is your favorite part of the town/city/area to hang out and why?
