Mequon, WI (PRWEB) May 09, 2014
Three distinct organizations have united to deliver recreational experiences, leadership workshops, and Green Bay Packers’ history to one Milwaukee area setting.
Green Bay Packer Hall of Fame kicker, Chris Jacke, founded his business venture, Player Alumni Resources aka P.A.R.13, as a way to provide interactive experiences between former Packers players and various organizations and fans through golf, fishing charters, and speaking engagements.
“We are looking at creating some up-close ways to preserve Packers’ history and have some fun sharing some of the stories behind the glory,” said Jacke. “After being a part of so many golf outings over the years and seeing how fans enjoy the interaction with former players, I got the idea to organize a group of former Packers in order to assist my fellow Packers alumni while helping to satisfy the desires of the market.”
Jacke’s wife, Terri, founded Inspired Training Institute, Inc. in 2003 to provide executive coaching, training, and organizational development resources for mid-sized to Fortune 100 companies. Inspired Training Institute and P.A.R.13 have partnered successfully by integrating business training with Packers-centric golf experiences.
Now, The River Club of Mequon, with its 27-hole championship golf course and recent $13 million clubhouse transformation, has inked an agreement to be P.A.R. 13’s exclusive partner in various golf related events that feature Packers alumni as well as leadership workshops through Inspired Training Institute.
“This is an exclusive partnership among three exceptional organizations with varying resources to combine and enhance the primary components to contemporary living,” said River Club GM, Ryan Doerr. “Inspiration, education and recreation -- all very beneficial and the concept folds nicely into the life-work balance that’s reflected in our values at The River Club. Our facility is ideal for these kinds of events.”
“Chris Jacke called on us on subzero January day to talk about P.A.R.13,” said River Club Marketing Director, John Haines. “We thought, ‘well, it’d be cool to meet Chris Jacke’ – so we agreed to meet with Chris and Terri which led to some brainstorming sessions. We landed on an idea where the three organizations could work together in a way that benefits everyone -- including our Membership and the Milwaukee area business community.”
The group has scheduled their first collaborative effort for June 13th -- The Self Aware Leader. Participants utilize the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator to better connect their MBTI temperament to their leadership practices. The event is set to run from 11am to 3:30pm and the $249 cost includes lunch from the golf club sports bar and the participant’s MBTI Step II profile. Green Bay Packers Alumni, Bryce Paup and Chris Jacke, will share their experiences and help facilitate the leadership workshop. A discounted round of golf involving both former Packers will be available after the training.
Terri Jacke said that the two former all-pro NFL football players were required to make some profound changes upon entering the business world.
“Chris has a Super Bowl ring and Bryce was the NFL’s Defensive Player of the Year but it was their ability to adapt, their ability to flex their fundamentally different temperaments that ultimately freed them up to find success in business and coaching after their playing days ended. It starts with identifying one’s innate approach or type,” she said. “This is very relatable stuff and a critical prerequisite to effective leadership, whatever the endeavor.”
Both Terri Jacke and Kristi Millhiser, her colleague at Inspired Training, have earned master’s degrees in Education and Organizational Behavior and in Management and Organizational Behavior, respectively, and they hold the MBTI® Master Practitioner status and the Senior Professional in Human Resources designation.
