A little laughter at the beginning of your team meeting will increase endorphins, goodwill, and creativity. Here is a team building activity you can facilitate in 10 minutes or less. Simply ask each person to share ONE line from a movie, tv-show, play, book, or a song that makes them laugh.
You might need to give your team time to think, so consider asking them this question as pre-work so no one is put on the spot.
This is a fun exercise even if you don’t know the lines. People typically laugh when they tell their own lines, and laughter is contagious. Another option is to have people say their lines in character and see if the team can guess who said it.
What is a line that made you laugh out loud?
Bring some joy and humor to your team with this fun, easy team building activity, “Lines that Make Me Laugh.” Simply ask your team to share a funny line and let the laughter begin.
