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”. Here at Adventura, we know 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 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 It’s no different with interpersonal work relationships.
This is what we do. 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.

Why is Experienced-Based Learning Important for Team Building?
It is all about practice and mastery: Can you dance? Do you know how to write amazing code? Do you know how to play an instrument well? How did you learn your skills? Through practice of course. You need more than someone instructing you on a thing. Hearing is not as good as seeing, seeing is not as good as knowing, and knowing is not as good as doing. To be able to apply the knowledge in practice, that is our objective. The process of developing skills via experience is embedded within us all. Here at Adventura, we guide our clients through the transition from knowing to applying.
How to we make the jump from typical work-mode to practice-mode? This questions is key in how we make the most of team building time investment We are here to create this shift in focus. And we do it through experience-based learning.
