Ice Breaker Questions

The first couple of days or weeks of work are always awkward for everyone. To make things a little less weird, people often employ the use of ice breaker questions.

Now, I personally have always found these questions entirely too cringe and invasive. But, there is a pretty significant percentage of the business world that likes questions like these so I decided to throw this random icebreaker question generator together.

To get started, all you need to do is pick a category and click the generate button. Once you do, my robots will present you with thousands of possible icebreakers for you to use at your next painfully awkward kickoff call or meeting.

If you don't have a category in mind, select the random option and let fate decide for you.
