Team Building Q&A: 24 AMAZING Team Building Questions

A-HA Series Blog Icon | Leah Van Rooy | Blue Door Consulting

We’ve added a number of talented people to our Blue Door Consulting team recently. With all these new faces, our teammates felt it was time to do some quality ‘get to know you’ team building. Instead of sitting in a circle and singing Kumbaya- which I’m sure would have been memorable- we opted for a different approach. Since we are experts at asking questions, it seemed fitting to do a good, old-fashioned Q&A session.

Each team member picked a fellow team member’s name out of a hat and asked that person any question they wanted (sticking to PG-rated topics of course). This concept of a casual Q&A session could be used as an icebreaker or team building exercise with any group: new employees, clients, vendors, volunteer groups, even friends and family.

Team Building Q&A: 24 Amazing Team Building QuestionsNot sure what kind of questions to ask? Here are some of the ones our team brainstormed:

  1. What was the best gift/present you have ever gotten?
  2. What was your most embarrassing moment?
  3. What was your favorite birthday?
  4. If I gave you a million dollars right now (and you are not able to keep it) how would you spend it?
  5. How many bow-ties do you own? (This question was directed to Jacob – our bow-tie aficionado here in the office.)
  6. If you could go back in time and give your 19-year-old-self one piece of advice, what would it be?
  7. What was your worst ever parenting moment?
