International Valentine's Day Zoom Call - I brought my Icebreaker Pack
For Valentine's day this year, I hosted a Zoom call for professional coaches who are all single and looking for a partner. These are people who know how to communicate well. We had folks from all over the world. The person farthest away was in Asia and the closest person was at my house.
I used the Icebreaker Starter Pack and the effect was awesome. I don't know if any romances took root that day, but every one said they had a great time learning about each other. We had some deep, meaningful conversations inspired by the cards.
I would totally make my Icebreaker Starter Pack and Deeper Talk regular tools whenever I need to build rapport quickly with a group or individual.
I ordered the ice breaker deeper talk deck and unfortunately got my package stolen and I reached out and they responded very quick and were able to send me a new deck no hassle great customer service and overall great deck!! So many interesting questions to learn about someone!!!
Oh, man...I bought this deck to lure my dad (who has dementia) out of his rigid routine and engage/stimulate his mind. I was hoping it would be a good way to bond and also enrich his monotonous days a little bit. It was such a hit, I can’t even tell you. It sits on the kitchen table and he asks to “play that game.” Although he has a lot of trouble with his short term memory, he’s able to reflect and answer a lot of the questions using his long term memories, which are still very sharp. He got a little emotional a couple times, but seemed to enjoy having an opportunity to be willingly vulnerable on his own terms instead of the standard vulnerability that he faces on a daily basis (that’s beyond his control). I docked it by one star because he said a couple times that some of the questions seemed like they weren’t applicable to people who are in their sunset years. On future decks, I’d suggest looking at the content a bit harder thru a multi-generational lens.
