What is Team Building About?
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 We live it and breathe it with our team of experienced facilitators, our workshops that have been tested and honed over many years, and our dedication to building collaboration and communication.
For us, team building is not simply about making friends with your coworkers and having fun with your team. It is striving to become better and more whole people. These are the basic values we are committed to, working from the individual, outward. Being a better person, with stronger communication, is essential for strengthening any relationship. This is the same when considering work relationships.
This is what we do. Our intention is not to be your friend. We want to help you understand yourselves better, improve decision making skills, support each other, and become better humans.

Why use experience-based Learning for Team Building?
Practice and Mastery: Have you learned how to dance? Can you write amazing code? Can you proficiently play a musical instrument? How did you learn that skill? Through Hands-on practice. It isn’t sufficient to just be told a thing. Hearing is not as good as seeing, seeing is not as good as knowing, and knowing is not as good as doing. 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. We utilize experience-based learning to do this.
