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”. 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 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 at Adventura. Our goal is not to be your friend. We are here to help you understand yourselves better, make better decisions, support one another and work towards being the best humans you can be.

How is Experienced-Based Learning Useful for Team Building?
Practice and Mastery: Have you learned how to dance? Can you write amazing code? Can you proficiently play a musical instrument? How have you honed those skills? It has taken hands on practice. It is not enough to have someone stand in front of you, telling you about 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. The process of experientially developing skills is embedded within all of us. 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.
