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”. At Adventura, we know about 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.
Team building, to us, is not just about making friends with your coworkers and having a good time 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. This is no different in interpersonal 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.

Why is Experienced-Based Learning Important for Team Building?
It is all about practice and mastery: Can you dance? Do you write amazing code? Can you sit down and proficiently play a musical instrument? How have you honed those skills? It has taken hands on practice. It isn’t sufficient to just be told a thing. Hearing is not as good as seeing, seeing is not as good as knowing, and knowing is not as good as doing. Our objective is to apply the knowledge to practice. The process of developing skills via experience is embedded within us all. Here at Adventura, we actively work to provide people with the transition from knowing to applying.
