The Purpose of Team Building
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. 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.
Team building, for us, is not simply about creating friendships with coworkers and having fun with your team. It is striving to become better and more whole people. We work from those basic values to strengthen 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 at Adventura. We are not here to be your friends. 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?
It is all about practice and mastery: Can you dance? Do you know how to write amazing code? Can you sit down and proficiently play a musical instrument? How did you learn your skills? Through Hands-on practice. 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. The process of developing skills via experience is embedded within us all. 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 help create this shift in focus. We utilize experience-based learning to do this.
