The Purpose of Team Building
The term “team building” has become a catch phrase over time; an excuse for team mini golf, ping pong, or the general “morale event”. At Adventura, we know about team building Our team of experienced facilitators lives it and breathes it through our workshops that have been honed and tested over many years, and our dedication to building communication and collaboration.
For us, team building is not simply about making friends with your coworkers and having fun with your team. It is working to be more whole and better people. These are the values we work from, strengthening your team from the individual out. Being a better person, with stronger communication, is essential for strengthening any relationship. It’s no different with interpersonal work relationships.
This is what we do. We are not here to be your friends. We want to help you understand yourselves better, improve decision making skills, support each other, and become better humans.

How is Experienced-Based Learning Useful for Team Building?
Practice and Mastery: Do you know how to dance? Do you know how to write amazing code? Do you know how to play an instrument well? How did you learn that skill? It has taken hands on practice. It isn’t sufficient to just be told a thing. Hearing does not equal seeing, seeing does not equal knowing, and know does not equal doing To be able to apply the knowledge in practice, that is our objective. Learning through experiential development of skills is embedded within all of us. Here at Adventura, we actively work to provide people with the transition from knowing to applying.
How to we enter practice-mode from our typical work-mode? This question is central to making the most of time invested in team building. We excel at creating this shift of focus. And we do it through experience-based learning.
