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. 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, to us, is not just about making friends with your coworkers and having a good time 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 do. We are not here to be your friends. We are here to help you understand yourselves more, make stronger decisions, support each other, and work toward being your best self.

Why is Experienced-Based Learning Important for Team Building?
It is all about practice and mastery: Can you dance? Do you know how to write amazing code? Can you proficiently play a musical instrument? How have you honed those skills? It has taken hands on practice. It isn’t sufficient to just be told a thing. Hearing does not equal seeing, seeing does not equal knowing, and know does not equal doing Applying knowledge to practice, this is our objective. The process of experientially developing skills is embedded within all of us. Our goal here at Adventura is to guide our clients through 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 use experience-based learning to do it.
