What is the Purpose of Team Building?
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. 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 striving to become better and more whole people. We work from those basic values to strengthen your team from the individual out. 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 at Adventura. Our intention 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: Do you know how to dance? Do you write amazing code? Do you know how to play an instrument well? How did you learn that skill? It has taken hands on practice. It isn’t sufficient to just be told a thing. Hearing does not equal seeing, seeing does not equal knowing, and know does not equal doing To be able to apply the knowledge in practice, that is our objective. The process of developing skills via experience is embedded within us all. 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 excel at creating this shift of focus. We utilize experience-based learning to do this.
