What is Team Building About?
The idea of “team building” has become a company catch phrase for team mini golf, ping pong, or “morale events.” We know team building here at Adventura. We live it and breathe it with our team of experienced facilitators, our workshops that have been tested and honed over many years, and our dedication to building collaboration and communication.
Team building, for us, is not simply about creating friendships with coworkers and having fun with your team. It is striving to become better and more whole people. These are the basic values we are committed to, working from the individual, outward. 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 offer at Adventura. Our goal 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.

Learning through experiential development of skills is embedded within all of us. Here at Adventura, we actively work to provide people with the transition from knowing to applying.
