What is Team Building About?
“Team Building” has become a catch phrase; an excuse for a day of team mini golf or ping pong tournaments, or general “morale events”. Here at Adventura, we know 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.
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. We work from those basic values to strengthen your team from the individual out. 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 offer Our intention is not to be your friend. We are here to help you understand yourselves more, make stronger decisions, support each other, and work toward being your best self.
