Six Great Team Building Questions I Crowdsourced on Twitter post image

The Weaving Influence team meets on Monday mornings for a quick check in for the week.

As building community is a high priority for me — our team is virtual, with members living in Boston, Houston, Chicago, Tennesee,  and tiny small town Michigan — I like to begin each meeting with a question to help us get to know one another beyond work.

Yesterday, our newest subcontractor joined the meeting for the first time (hi Joanna!) and I wanted to have an extra great question/ice breaker.

So, I did what any internet savvy leader would do and crowdsourced the question on Twitter. Here are the great ideas I generated, with a hat tip to the people who shared them and special props to @emilyadams829, whose question I used:

From @gobles: Ask people to share a favorite (but brief) story about a favorite vacation spot.

From @emilyadams829: When were you brave this week? Another: What is one personal change you want to see by the end of February?

From @anne4evayoung: What’s on your bucket list?

From @othrthanweather: (a joke question): How much does a polar bear weigh? …just enough to break the ice! ; ) #icebreaker #badjoke

From @KarenMartinOpEx: Have them share 3 facts/stories about themselves, one of which isn’t true. Ask others to guess which one isn’t true.

I chose “When were you brave this week?”

Tell me something! How do you build community on your team? What is your favorite team building question? When were you brave this week?

Here’s one:

Tell me about a time when you felt like you were King/Queen of the World (like the scene in Titanic FYI) … what have you done to try to replicate that experience?

Cheers, Becky!

Ooh. Good one. A similar question might be “What makes you feel strong?”
