What is Team Building About?
“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.
Team building, for us, is not simply about creating friendships with 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. Strengthening communication and working toward becoming a better person is essential for bettering any relationship This is the same when considering 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.

Why is Experienced-Based Learning Important for Team Building?
Practice and Mastery: Do you know 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 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. 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 are here to create this shift in focus. We use experience-based learning to do it.
