What is 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”. Here at Adventura, we know team building. 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.
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. 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 the same when considering work relationships.
This is what we offer 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.
