TeamBuilders Develops Pursuit by Blending Geocaching with Performance Development Programs

Share Article

Tampa Bay-based company combines the new sport of Geocaching with its existing custom leadership, team and organizational development programs.

TeamBuilders, a Tampa Bay-based performance development company, has found a way to combine the popular new sport of Geocaching with its highly successful organizational development programs. The result is a completely new approach to performance development, called Pursuit.

“Pursuit is the latest performance development simulation from TeamBuilders,” said Nick Conner, TeamBuilders’ vice president of program development. “Pursuit puts teams in real–time situations that need real-time solutions. Team and leadership dynamics surface, and the insights become strong applications for future success.”

Like Geocaching, Pursuit is a problem-solving simulation that relies on Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) receivers, two way radios, the Internet and other tools that lead teams from location to location in search of clues and coordinates. Ultimately, the teams must find their way to a pre-established goal.

“Pursuit allows teams to work together toward a common goal while utilizing the very latest high-tech positioning tools,” said Conner.

Pursuit simulates real-world business problem-solving challenges, according to Conner. Teams must determine and prioritize objectives before moving on to the goal, just as they must do in the real world.

“Pursuit is something that can be done in virtually any location, and it can be combined with our other existing programs to offer an almost endless variety of challenges,” Conner said. “The use of technology keeps the team members interested and engaged, and it develops the attributes of leadership in all the participants, not just the leader.”

Members or leaders of high-performance teams are in constant pursuit of a wide range of goals, according to Conner. They include success, adventure, self-actualization, sales, security, risk, or quality of life. They might also include an enhanced return on investment, or perhaps an initial public offering.

Pursuit is only the latest TeamBuilders innovation. The company consistently brings new ideas to the performance development arena – ideas that keep TeamBuilders clients coming back for new programs that inspire and motivate their leaders and teams.

Earlier this year, TeamBuilders introduced the Five-Star TPI® Team Performance Indicator, an assessment instrument that allows clients to accurately measure the effectiveness of their team performance programs. Five-Star TPI® provides a success measurement capability that extends months after the team building program has been completed.
