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”. 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.
Team building, for us, is not simply about creating friendships with coworkers and having fun with your team. It is striving to become better and 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. 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.

Our objective is to apply the knowledge to practice. 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.
