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.
Team building, to us, is not just about making friends with your coworkers and having a good time with your team. It is striving to become better and more whole people. These are the values we work from, strengthening your team from the individual out. In any relationship, being a better person, with stronger communication skills contributes to a stronger bond. This is no different in interpersonal work relationships.
This is what we offer 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: Have you learned how to dance? Do you know how to write amazing code? Do you know how to play an instrument well? How have you honed those skills? It has taken 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 developing skills via experience is embedded within us all. Our goal here at Adventura is to guide our clients through the transition from knowing to applying.
