About TBi

TBi utilises Adventure related Experiential Learning or AEL to develop individuals and teams in a holistic manner, through sustainable positive behaviour.

The idea is that adventure is experienced subjectively (state of mind), so our methodology explores (and sometimes stretches) the boundaries of comfort zones BUT it will always be a ‘challenge by choice’, meaning that no one is forced to do anything they are not comfortable doing!

Slide Background

When challenging your comfort zone, everyone experiences something different, something powerful and meaningful as an individual. Facilitated reflection follows and ignites changes of behavioural patterns that lead to transfer of learning into the work environment. This is a powerful cycle with proven results your organisation stands to benefit from. TBi clients gain from years of experience and ongoing research.

Philosophy :

The philosophy driving TBi resides in the belief that each staff member shares a calling to facilitate moments of truth, striving to create an environment of trust, support, inclusion, caring and being authentic. Diversity is embraced in terms of gender and race while fostering a culture of ownership and accountability where learning is shared and success is celebrated. Staff members at TBi are encouraged to live a balanced life; it is therefore imperative that as a company, we walk the talk.

What Makes us Different?

TBi focuses on outcomes rather than just activities. Programmes are formulated based on the unique needs of each team rather than the ineffective blanket approach applied by 90% of the team building industry. Paintball, gokarting and the likes will give your team a fun day out of the office; but the TBi team separate themselves from this practice by providing your team with realworld outcomes that are guaranteed to make a difference to your organisation. The following articles by Dr. Heunis elaborate further on this:

Power Facilitation
