What is Team Building About?
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.
For us, team building is not simply about making friends with your coworkers and having fun with your team. It is striving to become better and more whole people. We work from those basic values to strengthen your team from the individual out. In any relationship, being a better person, with stronger communication skills contributes to a stronger bond. It’s no different with interpersonal work relationships.
This is what we do. We are not here to be your friends. We want to help you understand yourselves better, improve decision making skills, support each other, and become better humans.

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? Do you know how to play an instrument well? How did you learn that skill? Through practice of course. It is not enough to have someone stand in front of you, telling you about a thing. Hearing does not equal seeing, seeing does not equal knowing, and know does not equal doing Our objective is to apply the knowledge to practice. The process of developing skills via experience is embedded within us all. Here at Adventura, we guide our clients through the transition from knowing to applying.
How to we make the jump from typical work-mode to practice-mode? This questions is key in how we make the most of team building time investment We are here to create this shift in focus. And we do it through experience-based learning.
