What is the Purpose of Team Building?
The term “team building” has become a catch phrase over time; an excuse for team mini golf, ping pong, or the general “morale event”. 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.
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. In any relationship, being a better person, with stronger communication skills contributes to a stronger bond. It’s no different with interpersonal work relationships.
This is what we do. Our intention 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.
