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. 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. 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 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?
It is all about practice and mastery: Can you dance? Can you write amazing code? Can you proficiently play a musical instrument? How did you learn that skill? Through practice of course. It is not enough to have someone stand in front of you, telling you about 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. Learning through experiential development of skills is embedded within all of us. Here at Adventura, we 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 utilize experience-based learning to do this.
