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”. Here at Adventura, we know 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.
For us, team building is not simply about making friends with your coworkers and having fun 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. Strengthening communication and working toward becoming a better person is essential for bettering any relationship This is no different in interpersonal work relationships.
This is what we offer at Adventura. We are not here to be your friends. We are here to help you understand yourselves better, make better decisions, support one another and work towards being the best humans you can be.

Through practice of course. 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. Here at Adventura, we guide our clients through the transition from knowing to applying.
