What is Team Building About?
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. We live it and breathe it through our workshops that have been tested and honed over years by our team of experience facilitators, and our dedication to building collaboration and communication.
Team building, for us, is not simply about creating friendships with coworkers and having fun 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. Being a better person, with stronger communication, is essential for strengthening any relationship. This is the same when considering work relationships.
This is what we offer We are not here to be your friends. 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?
Practice and Mastery: Do you know how to dance? Can you write amazing code? Do you know how to play an instrument well? How have you honed those skills? Through practice of course. It isn’t sufficient to just be told a thing. Hearing is not as good as seeing, seeing is not as good as knowing, and knowing is not as good as doing. Applying knowledge to practice, this is our objective. Learning through experiential development of skills is embedded within all of us. Our goal here at Adventura is to guide our clients through 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. We use experience-based learning to do it.
