For remote or flexible teams that value team connection, trust and high performance.

Your team has learned to work remotely, now it's time to enhance their connection, communication and creativity in their new online office.

30 minutes of fun, backed by research and experience

Ice-o-lation Breakers are high energy team building activities based on the work of Viola SpolinDr Stuart Brown and designed with the experiential learning framework developed by Dr David Kolb.

The aim of these activities is to:

  • improve trust within a group (enhance psychological safety)

  • enhance the soft-skills required for better online conversations and relationships

  • provide opportunities to have fun within a group despite the constraints of remote working

  • energise remote sedentary workers (the majority of activities are standing and physical (within the limits of the space/ physical limitations of the participant))

  • fire up different neural pathways (remote, sedentary work lends itself to creating more limited ways of work patterns and can reduce creative thought)

 

Each session has a different focus that supports team building and online communication. The session is followed up with information that outlines the methodology behind each session and key skills. 

A fun focus on the soft skills we need today  

Online working has changed the way we interact, conduct critical conversations and pick up on important non-verbal cues from colleagues and clients alike. Ice-o-lation Breakers are structured around important soft skills including:

1. Awareness of Self

2. Non-verbal communication

3. Attention

4. Active Listening

5. Spontaneity

6. Collaboration

A team building practice that enhances productivity

Ice-o-lation Breakers can be scheduled prior to fortnightly team meetings, sprint retrospectives or as mid-week energiser. They are a small investment in time and money that makes a big impact on team dynamics and harmony.

We have had over 200 people regularly engage in 
Ice-o-lation Breakers since its launch. Participant feedback includes: 

  • 75% felt more connected to their team after the session

  • 50% saw a direct application of activities to their own meetings/workshop

  • 95% felt more energised after the session

  • 75% felt the session gave them the opportunity to relax and have fun with their team.

Engagement options

We offer a one-month, six monthly or annual engagement from under $25 per person per session. Even better with your Turn-It-Up discount.

How do we make our online learning better?

The backdrop of our workshop spaces has changed. What are the new skills a facilitator needs to successfully manage the transition from face-to-face to online facilitation?

 

A masterclass for the facilitator who seeks to heighten participation, engagement and fun in online settings.

Deep dive into all aspects of online workshop design

Our Connection before Content Masterclass is 3 x 90 minutes of action-packed experiential learning to ensure that you have the insider knowledge on how best to run facilitated workshops online.

 

Participants leave understanding how to

 

  • Employ the principles of experiential design for online spaces and how to maximise engagement and retention.

 

  • Lead tried and tested online activities to create authentic connection quickly and effectively at a distance.

 

  • Confidently navigate the different way people interact in the online environment and learn important camera tricks to increase both energy and intimacy.

 

It is relevant for both novice and experienced facilitators.

Three modules of theory, practice and reflection

We have structured the program into three distinct 90 minute workshops which allow for exploration and reflection between modules.

Workshop 1 - Experiential Design Online

 

Workshop 2 - Fostering Online Connection

Workshop 3 - Online Presenting Practicum

Further detail on workshop content can be found here.

The workshop has given me great comfort in knowing various things about smooth facilitation. It is hands down one of the best workshops I have attended.
