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”. At Adventura, we know about team building We live it and breathe it with our team of experienced facilitators, our workshops that have been tested and honed over many years, and our dedication to building collaboration and communication.
For us, team building is not simply about making friends with your coworkers and having fun 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. In any relationship, being a better person, with stronger communication skills contributes to a stronger bond. This is the same when considering work relationships.
This is what we do. 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.
