Empathy Water CoolerFrom $295 USD
Put yourself in someone else's shoes
Groups will be presented with an empathy-focused question, and randomly put into small groups to answer the question in breakout rooms. For example: "When you are overwhelmed at work, what are your non-verbal warning signs (e.g. body language, facial expressions) that you wish others knew?"
Participants will then be brought back to the main room for a different question and re-randomized for another round. Each round is ~4 minutes, with up to 10 rounds.
Reflect and debrief: At the end, everyone will come together to share something they learned about one of their coworkers and a takeaway from the empathy exercise that they hope to bring with them into the workplace.
👐 "Why is empathy important?" Empathy is a social skill which encourages us to recognize and understand other people's points of view. Showing empathy not only improves relationships within the workplace, but also leads to more effective communication and positive outcomes. These icebreaker questions are designed to encourage open sharing, active listening, and reflection.
This experience is for teams interested in building empathy with their coworkers in a fun, low-pressure environment, while getting to learn more about their teammates in small groups.

We always love to use Confetti for our employee engagement events! It is easy to book, and our employees always have a good time. Looking forward to booking a new event soon!
Our host was very personal and gave us plenty of high quality prompts that opened the door to good discussions among our team that we can continue even after the event.
This was a huge success for our company, everyone that participated loved it.
