NorthStar Adventure Teams up with Lehigh Valley GrandPrix to Deliver High Powered Team Building Training

Area leaders in experiential teambuilding provide full day of leadership development and fun!

January 13, 2009, 2008 – Bethlehem, PA. Companies have known for a long time that having a strong leadership team in place is the key to weathering tough economic times. Delivering memorable and coachable moments that create high performing teams has been the business of NorthStar Adventure at Dutch Springs and Lehigh Valley Grand Prix since their inceptions. Now the two adventure training specialists are teaming up to provide a fun, fast-paced day of experiential education with their 2009 Survive, Thrive and Drive teamwork development sessions.

The new teamwork development sessions are designed especially for Star teams. Star teams are recognized as the best of the best performing teams in an organization. These teams generally deliver 80% of the results of a given department or business unit and are asked to deliver more with less during these tough economic times. The teamwork development sessions will focus on increasing teamwork, communications, trust and identify strengths and weaknesses of the organization.

Each teamwork development session will consist of a full day of facilitated teambuilding exercises, complete with pre and post workplace assessments. The first half of the day, teams are led through a series of customized challenges designed to deliver on pre-determined goals. The second half of the day participants take to the race track and get to experience the thrill of racing at 45 miles per hour in formula one-style race cars.

“This type of Peak Adventure is very popular within today’s highly competitive workplace,” commented Jason Chartrand, Director of NorthStar Adventure. “Many of our adventure challenge course alumni are planning to get behind the wheel,” he added.

The full day program takes place at Lehigh Valley Grand Prix’s state of the art racing facility. According to Mike McCreary, “LVGP has ignited new energy in over 200 companies in its first 18 months of operation. Give your team the adrenaline rush they need to propel them to the next level,” he added. The racing facility offers a training room, separate dining and social area, in addition to the race track.
