The Purpose of Team Building
The idea of “team building” has become a company catch phrase for team mini golf, ping pong, or “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 working to be more whole and better people. We work from those basic values to strengthen 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 do. 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.

The process of experientially developing skills is embedded within all of us. Here at Adventura, we guide our clients through the transition from knowing to applying.
