The Purpose of Team Building
“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. 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 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. It’s no different with interpersonal 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.

Why use experience-based Learning for Team Building?
Practice and Mastery: Do you know how to dance? Do you know how to write amazing code? Can you proficiently play a musical instrument? How did you learn that skill? It has taken hands on practice. It isn’t sufficient to just be told 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. 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 are here to create this shift in focus. And we do it through experience-based learning.
