I Am

Meeting Opener

Found in Collaborations Fall 2001

Ask participants to complete the phrase “I am” five times on a sheet of paper. Example:

  • I am 35 years old.
  • I am a programmer.
  • I am fun to be with.
  • I am married.
  • I am leaving on vacation tomorrow.

You can share this in a number of ways:

  • Have them get a partner. Both share their 5 statements.
  • Have them find new partners and do the same. (Do as many times as you can.)
  • Have them share in table groups.
  • Have people share with the entire group one at a time until you’ve gone around the room five times.
