What is 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.” Here at Adventura, we know team building. 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, 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. 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 the same when considering work relationships.
This is what we do. Our intention is not to be your friend. We want to help you understand yourselves better, improve decision making skills, support each other, and become better humans.

Why use experience-based Learning for Team Building?
It is all about practice and mastery: Can you dance? Can you write amazing code? Can you sit down and proficiently play a musical instrument? How did you learn your skills? Through 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 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 excel at creating this shift of focus. We utilize experience-based learning to do this.
