What is Team Building About?
The term “team building” has become a catch phrase over time; an excuse for team mini golf, ping pong, or the general “morale event”. At Adventura, we know about team building 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, for us, is not simply about creating friendships with coworkers and having fun 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. In any relationship, being a better person, with stronger communication skills contributes to a stronger bond. This is the same when considering work relationships.
This is what we do. We are not here to be your friends. 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.

Why is Experienced-Based Learning Important for Team Building?
Practice and Mastery: Do you know how to dance? Do you know how to write amazing code? Can you proficiently play a musical instrument? How have you honed those skills? Through Hands-on practice. It is not enough to have someone stand in front of you, telling you about a thing. Seeing is better than hearing, knowing is better than seeing, and doing is better than knowing. Applying knowledge to practice, this is our objective. The process of experientially developing skills is embedded within all of us. Here at Adventura, we actively work to provide people with the transition from knowing to applying.
How to we enter practice-mode from our typical work-mode? This questions is key in how we make the most of team building time investment We are here to create this shift in focus. And we do it through experience-based learning.
