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. 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.
For us, team building is not simply about making friends with your 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. Strengthening communication and working toward becoming a better person is essential for bettering any relationship This is no different in interpersonal work relationships.
This is what we offer 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?
Practice and Mastery: Do you know how to dance? Do you know how to write amazing code? Can you proficiently play a musical instrument? How did you learn that skill? Through practice of course. It isn’t sufficient to just be told a thing. Seeing is better than hearing, knowing is better than seeing, and doing is better than knowing. Our objective is to apply the knowledge to practice. The process of developing skills via experience is embedded within us all. 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.
