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”. 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 working toward bettering ourselves and becoming more whole people. These are the values we work from, strengthening your team from the individual out. Being a better person, with stronger communication, is essential for strengthening any relationship. It’s no different with interpersonal work relationships.
This is what we offer We are not here to be your friends. We are here to help you understand yourselves better, make better decisions, support one another and work towards being the best humans you can be.

Learning through experiential development of skills is embedded within all of us. Our goal here at Adventura is to guide our clients through the transition from knowing to applying.
