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 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 striving to become better and 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. This is no different in interpersonal work relationships.
This is what we do. 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.

How is Experienced-Based Learning Useful for Team Building?
Practice and Mastery: Have you learned how to dance? Can you write amazing code? Can you proficiently play a musical instrument? How did you learn your 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. Learning through experiential development of skills is embedded within all of us. Our goal here at Adventura is to 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. And we do it through experience-based learning.
