What is 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 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.
For us, team building is not simply about making friends with your coworkers and having fun with your team. It is working to be more whole and better people. These are the values we work from, strengthening 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 Our goal is not to be your friend. 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.

How is Experienced-Based Learning Useful for Team Building?
Practice and Mastery: Have you learned how to dance? Do you know how to write amazing code? Do you know how to play an instrument well? How have you honed those skills? Through practice of course. It is not enough to have someone stand in front of you, telling you about a thing. 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. The process of developing skills via experience is embedded within us all. Here at Adventura, we actively work to provide people with the transition from knowing to applying.
How to we make the jump from typical work-mode to practice-mode? This question is central to making the most of time invested in team building. We help create this shift in focus. We utilize experience-based learning to do this.
