Hi Gigi,
I'm glad you will be trying out our list of questions at work. You could write some questions on slips of paper and have each person choose one to answer. Or you could select one or two questions from the list and have everyone answer the same question. Either way is fun and a great way to get to know one another!

Posted by gigi gumer on Mon Jan 23, 2017 4:18 PM EST
I would like to use this for icebreaker at work, should I ask everyone the same question ?

Good job! It's like Sheldon from Big Bang Theory is asking these questions.
