What is Team Building About?
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 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 working toward bettering ourselves and becoming 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 the same when considering work relationships.
This is what we do. Our goal 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.

Why is Experienced-Based Learning Important for Team Building?
It is all about practice and mastery: Can you dance? Do you know how to write amazing code? Can you proficiently play a musical instrument? How did you learn your skills? It has taken hands on practice. You need more than someone instructing you on 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. Our goal here at Adventura is to guide our clients through the transition from knowing to applying.
How to we enter practice-mode from our typical work-mode? This questions is key in how we make the most of team building time investment We are here to create this shift in focus. We use experience-based learning to do it.
