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”. We know team building here at Adventura. 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, to us, is not just about making friends with your coworkers and having a good time 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. Being a better person, with stronger communication, is essential for strengthening any relationship. This is no different in interpersonal work relationships.
This is what we do. 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.

How is Experienced-Based Learning Useful for Team Building?
It is all about practice and mastery: Can you dance? Can you write amazing code? Can you proficiently play a musical instrument? How did you learn your skills? Through practice of course. 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.

Our goal here at Adventura is to guide our clients through the transition from knowing to applying.
