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, to us, is not just about making friends with your coworkers and having a good time with your team. It is working to be more whole and better people. We work from those basic values to strengthen your team from the individual out. Strengthening communication and working toward becoming a better person is essential for bettering any relationship This is no different in interpersonal work relationships.
This is what we offer at Adventura. We are not here to be your friends. We want to help you understand yourselves better, improve decision making skills, support each other, and become better humans.
