Icebreaker questions are a great way to get to know your team members, especially when the group is new or you haven’t all met each other in person. Getting to know your teammates on a deeper level will help create a more engaging work environment and encourage collaboration. However, asking the right icebreaker questions is harder than it seems — even when you think you know your team well. A good icebreaker question should be easy enough that anyone can answer it without feeling embarrassed, but also challenging enough to inspire discussion and connection.
