Break the Ice with The Four Quadrants Activity | Better Teams

Break the Ice with The Four Quadrants Activity | Better Teams | Serious Play | Scoop.it
The Four Quadrants is a tried and true team building activity to break the ice with a group or team. It is now one of my favorite activities because: 
It is EASY to prep for and set up. 
It can be MODIFIED to work with any group and/or topic (just change the questions). 
It is FUN, COLORFUL and VISUAL.
