What is 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”. Here at Adventura, we know team building. 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 working toward bettering ourselves and becoming 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 the same when considering work relationships.
This is what we do. We are not here to be your friends. We want to help you understand yourselves better, improve decision making skills, support each other, and become better humans.

Learning through experiential development of skills is embedded within all of us. Here at Adventura, we guide our clients through the transition from knowing to applying.
