About the 1 Truth 2 Lies Icebreaker Template

Alice Jankins, digital project manager and coach, created the 1 truth and 2 lies Icebreaker Template, a spin on the traditional 2 truths and 1 lie icebreaker. This template helps facilitators connect teams and is a great tool for team building.

What’s the 1 Truth 2 Lies Icebreaker Template?

This icebreaker is inspired by the traditional game 2 Truths and 1 Lie, but in this template, participants have to come up with 1 true fact about themselves and two lies. This activity aims to get people to interact with each other in a fun way.

Benefits of using 1 Truth 2 Lies Icebreaker Template

There are many benefits to using this icebreaker, especially when you are running team-building activities. Here are a few:

  • Inject some fun into your session. People often get distracted during long online sessions, so when you engage them with a fun icebreaker, you raise energy levels, and it’s easier to get people to pay attention to what’s coming next.

  • Allow people to get to know each other a bit better. Team building is important because when people communicate and collaborate, it improves performance and overall well-being. When teams are well acquainted, they manage to solve conflict faster and respect each other more.

  • Transform rituals by adding this icebreaker at the beginning of your standup, retrospective, workshop. This icebreaker helps to loosen up the mood and brings more fun to hands-on meetings, where there isn’t much room for play.

  • Teach people how to use Miro. The 1 Truth 2 Lies Icebreaker helps get everyone acclimated to the board, teaching participants how to use stickies, write on the board, and vote.
