Breaking the Ice Congratulations! Your boss has just given you the task of helping organize the training for new staff that are coming in next week for their orientation. She mentioned that you will be expecting 10 new employees for the training, and she wants you to be in charge of the icebreakers, exercises, and games in the training room. She also added that you will be looking at a diverse group of new employees to be working with that day, so put your thinking cap on!
MHR 6551, Training and Development 5
Based on what you have learned so far in our course, the text, and from experiences you have had leading up to this point, create the following that you will implement in the training of the new staff: • an opening icebreaker to get the group engaged and ready to start their training, • two exercises to implement following key discussions that are had during training, and • one game to conclude the training session that involves all the new employees and covers key terms, points, and events about our company.
