What is Team Building About?
“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 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, 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 values we work from, strengthening your team from the individual out. Being a better person, with stronger communication, is essential for strengthening any relationship. It’s no different with interpersonal work relationships.
This is what we offer Our intention 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.
