What is Team Building About?
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.
Team building, to us, is not just about making friends with your coworkers and having a good time with your team. It is working toward bettering ourselves and becoming more whole people. These are the basic values we are committed to, working from the individual, outward. Strengthening communication and working toward becoming a better person is essential for bettering any relationship This is the same when considering 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.
