Please! No more Icebreakers: 5 Ways to Get a Group Connected Without Icebreakers

Please! No more Icebreakers: 5 Ways to Get a Group Connected Without Icebreakers | Network Leadership | Scoop.it

"I want to affirm that getting people connected at the beginning of a meeting is essential for creating an openness and willingness to challenge. Peter Block has influenced my thinking on this issue. He always says, “Connection before Content.” If a group is going to concentrate on a difficult issue, they need to learn who others are, the skills they bring, the experience they represent, and the values they hold. Stasser, who studies group performance, notes, “Group performance increases when everyone in a group is aware of each other member’s expertise.” But unfortunately, icebreakers, like those I’ve listed above, don’t accomplish that that goal.

"Happily there are alternatives to icebreakers that effectively build connections between members of a group. I will suggest five that I use, but first I want to share my rules of thumb for designing an activity that creates connection, because the rules of thumb are much more important than the specific activity you choose."

I am not a big fan of icebreakers. The article suggests to "connect" in a group, form community, activities have to be well-thought out. What is the gathering about? What does the group want to accomplish?
Paulette Dotson's curator insight, July 18, 2:29 PM
You must remember as a younger person those awful icebreakers at camp, school etc.  There are other options to help build connections in groups.

Growth mindset for a more empathetic and collaborative world

Growth mindset for a more empathetic and collaborative world | Network Leadership | Scoop.it

"Much of the polarization in today’s world may be rooted in fixed mindsets. When people believe in fixed traits, they look to assign traits to other people rather than consider the psychology behind others’ behaviors. Once they assign a trait or quality to someone, they hold onto it.This can happen to people of any religion and across the political spectrum. When it happens to us, we tend to make blanket judgments and use negative labels to describe others rather than ask questions to try to better understand what has led others to their current beliefs." (from the article)

Coaching is one of the most powerful leadership and sales tools.

In ten minutes or less, you can ask strategic and thought-provoking questions that can help drive beneficial changes in behavior, help build team cohesiveness, and get things done effectively.

Here are his seven questions to add to your coaching toolbox to make your life easier and get big results.

Creating a Learning Culture

Creating a Learning Culture | Network Leadership | Scoop.it
Creating a Learning Culture features insightful essays from industry observers and revealing case studies of prominent corporations. Each chapter revolves around creating an environment where learning takes place each day, all day—fundamentally changing the way we think about how, what, and when we learn, and how we can apply learning to practice. Three sections address key aspects of learning culture: the modern business context and the importance of learning at every juncture; the organic and adaptive approaches organizational leaders can take to design enduring success; and the expanding role of individuals within organizations and the implications for business leaders, educators, technologists, and learners. Identifying the steps companies must take to remain competitive for years to come, this book explains how learning strategies applied to all aspects of every job can provide swift returns and lasting results.

Stop the bullying with empathy 

Stop the bullying with empathy  | Network Leadership | Scoop.it
POINTING fingers in the wake of the recent spate of fatal bullying cases in the country may seem futile but according to some experts, that could be the answer.

 

Bullying, they say, is a group process that comprises not only the bully and victim, but also bystanders – and all play a part in encouraging or stopping it.

 

Bystanders rarely play a completely neutral role in this “bully circle”, although they may think they do, Dr Christina Salmivalli, a professor of psychology at the University of Turku in Finland, has highlighted in her studies on the phenomenon in school.

 

Calling it the “social architecture of bullying”, Dr Salmivalli points out the “participant roles” in a bullying situation: assistants of the bully, reinforcers, outsiders and victim defenders (see chart).

While Cherry Network was established as an information and resource exchange, the role of Chief Silo Buster was inspired by the concept that creating, connecting, communicating, and collaborating are essential in “community“.

Building An Organization Around Teamwork And Autonomy | Network Leadership | Scoop.it
Embedded on every team is a coach. The coach’s role is critical in the success of the team. Our coaches provide a plethora of critical functions to their respective teams. They provide lightweight frameworks that support self-organizing teams and contain built-in continuous improvement mechanisms. They mentor individuals, alleviate team dysfunction and facilitate team and individual interactions. They help members of their team focus on introspection and thus allow them to repeat successes and learn from mistakes.

Random Acts Of Leadership™ | The Coaching Habit – An Interview with Michael Bungay Stanier | Network Leadership | Scoop.it
The word “coaching” seems to be used a lot these days. Yet do we really know what “coaching” means or have a shared understanding of what it is?

Michael has a very powerful way of explaining just what coaching is, not as a profession, but rather as a critical skill in leading others. He shows us simple ways to get started in being more coach-like in your leadership.


“Stay curious just a little bit longer and get into action just a little bit slower.”

In our conversation, he offers simple ways to be more “coach-like” in our everyday conversations with others. He suggests it’s okay for you to not have all the answers, even when people come to you for advice.  In fact, Michael shows us how, by developing the coaching habit, you can empower others far more than if you give them your answers.
