Ice breaker: two truths and a dream

· team,team-building

Aim: Participants attempt to identify which one of three statements told by other team members is false.

Instructions: Each person prepares three statements about themselves: two are true and one is something that the person would like to happen. For example, someone who wants to visit Hawaii might say: “I visited Hawaii when I was young.”

Each person reads their three statements to the team, the team votes on which statement is the dream, and the actual dream is then revealed.

Why is this useful?: Each team member shares something about their experience and character. Connections can be made (e.g. "I would like to go to Hawaii too', or 'Oh, but you must go to Hawaii. The surf is amazing.'), and by revealing their dreams, team members place their trust in the team.
