What is Team Building About?
The idea of “team building” has become a company catch phrase for team mini golf, ping pong, or “morale events.” At Adventura, we know about 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 working toward bettering ourselves and becoming more whole people. We work from those basic values to strengthen your team from the individual out. Being a better person, with stronger communication, is essential for strengthening any relationship. It’s no different with interpersonal work relationships.
This is what we offer at Adventura. 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.

Hearing does not equal seeing, seeing does not equal knowing, and know does not equal doing Our objective is to apply the knowledge to practice. Learning through experiential development of skills is embedded within all of us. Here at Adventura, we guide our clients through the transition from knowing to applying.
