There is that awkward moment when a group begins that we are meant to say our names and share something about ourselves…the painful icebreaker activity that aims to bring people together but more often than not can be awkward and anxiety provoking. Help…not another icebreaker!
In this webinar, participants will explore effective ways of starting a group to ensure even the most anxious of participants can engage and participate. If you run any type of group, this webinar will build up your toolbox with creative and purposeful group beginnings that don’t thrust your participants into the spotlight but slowly offers them a way to be part of a group.
By the end of the webinar you will be able to:
1) Identify practical tools to start a group effectively
2) Understand what tool to use and when for specific groups
