Palm Harbor, Fla. (PRWEB) August 10, 2005
TeamBuilders, a performance development company based in Palm Harbor, Fla. and the Boston area, announced today it will build a special training course at Mission Inn Golf and Tennis Resort in Howey-in-the-Hills, Fla.
The course will be used for Pursuit training. Pursuit is an organizational development program TeamBuilders developed and introduced last year.
ÂPursuit has proven to be a highly effective -- and highly popular -- organizational training program, and our clients have embraced it enthusiastically since we introduced it last fall,Â said Nick Conner, TeamBuildersÂ vice president of program development. ÂThis new course in Howey-in-the-Hills is specially designed for the Pursuit program, and it will give us a beautiful venue that clients should find extremely comfortable.Â
Mission Inn Golf and Tennis Resort is located in FloridaÂs rolling hills in Lake County, 35 minutes northwest of OrlandoÂs major attractions. It is a popular vacation destination and is easily accessible to major highways and interstates.
Lake County is a boater's dream with 1,400 lakes covering 202 square miles. Lake Harris alone is a 13,788 acre fresh water lake and, through a network of locks, canals and lakes, provides boaters with access to the Atlantic Ocean.
The new outdoor course is designed specifically for Pursuit, which incorporates the sport of geocaching, Conner said. 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.
ÂPursuit allows teams to work together toward a common goal while utilizing the very latest high-tech positioning tools,Â 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 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, TeamBuilders introduced the Five-Star TPIÂ® Team Performance Indicator, an assessment instrument that allows clients to accurately measure the effectiveness of their team performance programs. Five-Star TPIÂ® provides a success measurement capability that extends months after the team building program has been completed.
Founded in 1998, TeamBuilders is a leading performance development company which designs customized leadership, team and organizational performance development programs for groups of any size. The programs feature a combination of intellectual and interactive challenges, unique assessment tools and action planning sessions. Sessions are about doing different to do more. TeamBuilders has worked with organizations throughout the United States, Puerto Rico, Canada and Europe. It operates an Outdoor Learning Center at the Mission Inn Golf and Tennis Resort outside Orlando, Fla.
