Diversity Icebreaker® – much more than breaking the ice!

The training which I participated in, was carried out in a nice and an incredibly friendly atmosphere. The facilitators were able to present clearly the issues on breaking barriers between people of different types. I regard this training a highly useful and opening new horizons!

The model is simple and provides an easy entrance to appreciation and taking advantage of diversity of culture, gender, or age.

A questionnaire and a workshop

We believe in energizing workshops, which are fun to facilitate and fun to take part in.

 

The questionnaire

di

The Diversity Icebreaker® builds on a questionnaire measuring preferences for communication, interaction and different problem-solving styles. Participants fill in the questionnaire (it only takes 10 minutes) and through unique group processes develop a shared understanding of how to make use of their diversity. The intervention aims to create a non-judgmental atmosphere through self-revealing and humoristic interpersonal interactions. 

 

The workshop

The concept is easy to use for consultants and facilitators, easy to understand for participants and scientifically validated. A typical Diversity Icebreaker workshop lasts between 1 and 1,5 hours and is conducted for groups of 9 to 200 participants. The formula opens possibilities to lead the processes after the workshop in many, different directions.
