Secret Story

> Initiate communication

Each participant writes a story about something true that happened to them. Participants will then try to guess who experienced each of these stories, learning something unexpected about each person and breaking the ice so the meeting can start strong. This activity works well with a group of participants who’ve never met or who don’t know one another very well.

Suggestions and variations

The facilitator can participate too, injecting some silliness into the activity with their example – while sticking to the truth of course – so the group can loosen up.
