Energize Your Online Team Meeting

Usually, I am all about intentional team activities, but sometimes you just want a quick laugh to wake people up in your online team meeting. Funny polls are a way to quickly engage and energize your team with a little bit of humor.

An example of a funny poll is:

What are you wearing on your bottom half (off-camera) right now?

  • Pants
  • Jeans
  • Skirt
  • PJ bottoms
  • Sweatpants
  • Shorts

Here are some additional funny and light-hearted polls that would only take 1-2 minutes to post and share.

When my alarm clock goes off in the morning I…
