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”. We know team building here at Adventura. 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.
For us, team building is not simply about making friends with your coworkers and having fun with your team. It is striving to become better and 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 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?
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 did you learn that skill? It has taken hands on practice. 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. To be able to apply the knowledge in practice, that 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 do we get from the typical work-mode to entering practice-mode? This questions is key in how we make the most of team building time investment We help create this shift in focus. And we do it through experience-based learning.
