What is Team Building About?
The term “team building” has become a catch phrase over time; an excuse for team mini golf, ping pong, or the general “morale event”. 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.
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. 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 the same when considering work relationships.
This is what we do. 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.

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? Through Hands-on practice. It is not enough to have someone stand in front of you, telling you about 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 guide our clients through the transition from knowing to applying.
How to we enter practice-mode from our typical work-mode? This question is central to making the most of time invested in team building. We help create this shift in focus. And we do it through experience-based learning.
