The Purpose of Team Building
“Team Building” has become a catch phrase; an excuse for a day of team mini golf or ping pong tournaments, or general “morale events”. We know team building here at Adventura. We live it and breathe it through our workshops that have been tested and honed over years by our team of experience facilitators, 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 values we work from, strengthening your team from the individual out. Strengthening communication and working toward becoming a better person is essential for bettering any relationship This is no different in interpersonal work relationships.
This is what we offer Our goal is not to be your friend. We are here to help you understand yourselves more, make stronger decisions, support each other, and work toward being your best self.

How is Experienced-Based Learning Useful for Team Building?
Practice and Mastery: Have you learned how to dance? Do you write amazing code? Can you sit down and proficiently play a musical instrument? How did you learn that skill? Through practice of course. You need more than someone instructing you on a thing. Seeing is better than hearing, knowing is better than seeing, and doing is better than knowing. 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 questions is key in how we make the most of team building time investment We help create this shift in focus. And we do it through experience-based learning.
