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. 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 at Adventura. 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.

How is Experienced-Based Learning Useful for Team Building?
It is all about practice and mastery: Can you dance? Do you write amazing code? Can you proficiently play a musical instrument? How have you honed those skills? Through Hands-on practice. You need more than someone instructing you on a thing. Hearing is not as good as seeing, seeing is not as good as knowing, and knowing is not as good as doing. Our objective is to apply the knowledge to practice. 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.
How to we make the jump from typical work-mode to practice-mode? This question is central to making the most of time invested in team building. We help create this shift in focus. We use experience-based learning to do it.
