How to get started with Team building and ice breakers

Team building starts with empathy and connection. Check-ins and ice breakers are often taken for granted — but in hybrid or work-from-anywhere environments, they can be the key to unlocking better teamwork, more collaboration, and a healthier culture. 

Make meetings more engaging with visual collaboration that empowers everyone on your team. 

  • Check in with teammates to see how they are feeling with sticky notes, images, GIFs, and more.
  • Leverage a template, or make your own, to get any meeting started with a fun warm up, ice breaker, or energizer.
  • Build in safety and trust, as well as broader engagement, with private mode and anonymous voting sessions that elevate the ideas the team likes best.
  • Make feedback more meaningful and accelerate innovation by fostering a culture of honesty and transparency through visual collaboration.
