The Purpose of Team Building
“Team Building” has become a catch phrase; an excuse for a day of team mini golf or ping pong tournaments, or general “morale events”. Here at Adventura, we know team building. 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.
For us, team building is not simply about making friends with your coworkers and having fun with your team. It is working toward bettering ourselves and becoming more whole 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. It’s no different with interpersonal work relationships.
This is what we offer 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.

How is Experienced-Based Learning Useful for Team Building?
Practice and Mastery: Have you learned how to dance? Do you write amazing code? Do you know how to play an instrument well? How have you honed those skills? It has taken hands on practice. You need more than someone instructing you on 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 questions is key in how we make the most of team building time investment We help create this shift in focus. We utilize experience-based learning to do this.
