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.” 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, for us, is not simply about creating friendships with coworkers and having fun with your team. It is working toward bettering ourselves and becoming more whole people. These are the basic values we are committed to, working from the individual, outward. In any relationship, being a better person, with stronger communication skills contributes to a stronger bond. This is no different in interpersonal work relationships.
This is what we offer at Adventura. Our goal is not to be your friend. 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.

Why is Experienced-Based Learning Important for Team Building?
Practice and Mastery: Have you learned how to dance? Do you write amazing code? Can you sit down and proficiently play a musical instrument? How did you learn that skill? Through practice of course. It isn’t sufficient to just be told a thing. Seeing is better than hearing, knowing is better than seeing, and doing is better than knowing. Applying knowledge to practice, this is our objective. The process of developing skills via experience is embedded within us all. Our goal here at Adventura is to guide our clients through the transition from knowing to applying.
How do we get from the typical work-mode to entering 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.
