What is Team Building About?
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. 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, for us, is not simply about creating friendships with coworkers and having fun with your team. It is working toward bettering ourselves and becoming more whole people. We work from those basic values to strengthen your team from the individual out. In any relationship, being a better person, with stronger communication skills contributes to a stronger bond. This is no different in interpersonal 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.

Why is Experienced-Based Learning Important for Team Building?
Practice and Mastery: Have you learned how to dance? Do you know how to write amazing code? Can you proficiently play a musical instrument? How have you honed those skills? Through practice of course. It isn’t sufficient to just be told 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 experientially developing skills is embedded within all of us. 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.
