To Build Connection on Your Team, Skip Icebreakers and Talk About Photography
Imagine looking at a photo of a single shoe on the sidewalk, or two people embracing, or a person walking alone into a cemetery. All these images instantly ignite emotions and associations — without a written or spoken word. And because the reaction is physiological, it happens in seconds. Photos can create connections between people faster — and more profoundly — than any icebreaker or team-building activity. And because the response that photos evoke is natural, leaders with no facilitation experience can use photos to turn team interactions into an opportunity to create connection and accelerate collaboration.
