The Purpose of Team Building
The idea of “team building” has become a company catch phrase for team mini golf, ping pong, or “morale events.” We know team building here at Adventura. 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. We work from those basic values to strengthen 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 offer at Adventura. We are not here to be your friends. We are here to help you understand yourselves better, make better decisions, support one another and work towards being the best humans you can be.

Why use experience-based Learning for Team Building?
Practice and Mastery: Do you know how to dance? Do you write amazing code? Can you proficiently play a musical instrument? How did you learn that skill? It has taken hands on practice. It is not enough to have someone stand in front of you, telling you about a thing. Seeing is better than hearing, knowing is better than seeing, and doing is better than knowing. Applying knowledge to practice, this is our objective. The process of experientially developing skills is embedded within all of us. Here at Adventura, we actively work to provide people with the transition from knowing to applying.
How do we get from the typical work-mode to entering practice-mode? This question is central to making the most of time invested in team building. We are here to create this shift in focus. And we do it through experience-based learning.
