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. 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, to us, is not just about making friends with your coworkers and having a good time 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. Being a better person, with stronger communication, is essential for strengthening any relationship. This is no different in interpersonal work relationships.
This is what we offer Our intention is not to be your friend. 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.

Why use experience-based Learning for Team Building?
Practice and Mastery: Do you know how to dance? Do you write amazing code? Can you proficiently play a musical instrument? How did you learn that skill? Through Hands-on practice. It is not enough to have someone stand in front of you, telling you about a thing. Hearing does not equal seeing, seeing does not equal knowing, and know does not equal doing Our objective is to apply the knowledge to practice. 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. And we do it through experience-based learning.
