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”. 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.
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. This is no different in interpersonal work relationships.
This is what we do. Our goal is not to be your friend. We want to help you understand yourselves better, improve decision making skills, support each other, and become better humans.
