What is the Purpose of Team Building?
The term “team building” has become a catch phrase over time; an excuse for team mini golf, ping pong, or the general “morale event”. We know team building here at Adventura. 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.
Team building, to us, is not just about making friends with your coworkers and having a good time 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. This is no different in interpersonal work relationships.
This is what we offer at Adventura. 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?
It is all about practice and mastery: Can you dance? Do you write amazing code? Do you know how to play an instrument well? How did you learn your skills? Through practice of course. It isn’t sufficient to just be told a thing. Hearing is not as good as seeing, seeing is not as good as knowing, and knowing is not as good as 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 guide our clients through the transition from knowing to applying.
How to we enter practice-mode from our typical work-mode? This questions is key in how we make the most of team building time investment We help create this shift in focus. We use experience-based learning to do it.
