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”. At Adventura, we know about 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 to be more whole and better 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. It’s no different with interpersonal work relationships.
This is what we offer at Adventura. Our goal is not to be your friend. 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 that skill? 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 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 to we make the jump from typical work-mode to 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.
