-Great post! Thanks for sharing!
-I did not realize the gravity of asking for e-copies of copyright materials (not really my intention to violate any copyright laws). But I understand that some e-books may be used perpetually once bought. BTW, you have any to share? It doesnt necessarily have to be a book.

Sorry I do not have anything much I can share as I do not use a lot of icebreakers in my training courses. At the beginning I usually do a simple "getting to know one another" type ice breaker, that's about all.
If you use the Download Search Box at the top of the page, you will find a wealth of material already posted by other CiteHR members. Also a Google search of icebreakers will bring you up plenty of material to choose from.
Depending on the material you are training, you can build team building exercises into the work you are doing rather than just a "team building exercise" for the sake of it. Break the group up into small groups and give them something to do relating to the learning point. Use small groups so that everyone has to participate and not "hide" in a large group and make no contribution. As the trainer, you should move from group to group during the exercise and specifically note that each person is actually contributing. If you see someone holding back, then at some point in the discussion, break in and say something like, "Raj, what do you think?" or a similar question. Some people are nervous, shy, whatever, and your job as a trainer is to encourage them to participate and help them feel at ease. That in turn means they learn and go away from your course with a little more confidence.
