"The Mingle"®
The Mingle is a ready-made activity that can be used as either an ice-breaker or a discussion starter. It comes as a set of 20 cards. Each card has a unique question designed specifically for the group you're working with or the topic you're discussing. There are currently four specific versions designed for:

Groups - either just forming, adding new members or needing to work together better
Teams - a slightly deeper look that fits well for intact teams
Collaboration - for situations where people need to find common ground and come together
Sustainability - for situations where people want to learn about and explore issues of sustainability
Coming Soon: Trust – helping groups and individuals to understand and develop trust.

As part of the activity, participants will talk one-on-one with each other. This encourages people to get to know one another or get better acquainted - make connections - and learn about themselves, each other, or the topic being discussed.

For more information, or to purchase Mingle Cards, please visit MingleCards.com.
