Facilitation intro activity – What brings you joy?

A while ago at our monthly Sydney Facilitators Network meeting I ran an introduction activity which was powerful in connecting me to the members of the group.
We asked everyone to share what they did for work, what brought them joy at work and what brought them joy outside of work. I got great insights into the passions of the people I’ve known for years and I offer this idea as a powerful way to get a group talking at a much deeper level than usual. I now use it as a regular introduction to sessions on team building.
I toyed with whether to answer just “what brings you joy?” but I found the combination of asking about joy at work and outside work, gave more information from which to make a connection with people. It also pre-supposes that joy is possible at work, which can be a good frame for a difficult team session.
