What is 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.” Here at Adventura, we know team building. 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 toward bettering ourselves and becoming more whole people. These are the values we work from, strengthening 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 at Adventura. 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?
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 your skills? It has taken hands on practice. You need more than someone instructing you on a thing. Seeing is better than hearing, knowing is better than seeing, and doing is better than knowing. To be able to apply the knowledge in practice, that 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 utilize experience-based learning to do this.
