The Purpose of Team Building
“Team Building” has become a catch phrase; an excuse for a day of team mini golf or ping pong tournaments, or general “morale events”. At Adventura, we know about team building We live it and breathe it with our team of experienced facilitators, our workshops that have been tested and honed over many years, 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 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 goal 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.
