CLEARWATER, Fla., Aug. 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- On Monday, August 22, Collaborative Labs at St. Petersburg College and Empower Adventures Tampa Bay will launch their new partnership by providing Habitat for Humanity Pinellas' 45-person staff an unparalleled leadership and team building experience, together.
Collaborative Labs' Executive Director Andrea Henning said, "We are thrilled to partner with such a strength-based organization like Empower Adventures Tampa Bay. We've spent the past decade designing and executing strategic-planning sessions for hundreds of unique organizations using our accelerated process and technology to accomplish in hours, what takes weeks or months using traditional methodologies. Gone are the days of the uber expensive strategic planning getaways for only the wealthiest companies; we provide affordable and customized solutions, and with EATB by our side, we are going to change the landscape together."
According to Henning, Monday's group from Habitat for Humanity Pinellas will build a Team Success Plan for the year at Collaborative Labs in the morning, and then they will reinforce the team experience and trust at Empower Adventures Tampa Bay in Oldsmar in the afternoon. The full day experience will result in increased team accountability and trust, as the Habitat for Humanity Pinellas' Team takes action on implementing their success plan for the next year.
EATB Founder and former Army Airborne Ranger Captain Joe DeRing said, "We have been searching the Bay Area for the right partner and feel that Collaborative Labs really fits the bill and connects our sense of adventure and empowerment. Our big differentiator is that we are not a theme park with thousands of visitors each day. Our location on the Mobbly Bayou Preserve in Oldsmar is an ideal venue for the perfect eco-friendly team-building experience; and our leadership model is based on my years of survival training and individual empowerment."
"Together, Collaborative Labs and Empower Adventures Tampa Bay will offer a high-engagement/high-impact program for any size business or organization wanting to tackle strategic planning and team building at the same time. Team consensus building and bonding opportunities happen in an informal setting around some pretty formal and important issues," Henning added.

About Empower Adventures Tampa Bay
EATB's mission is to empower teams and individuals to seek their highest potential. We achieve this mission by delivering powerful adventure experiences in beautiful settings that take people outside of their normal comfort zone. The course features five zip-lines and a 200-foot rope suspension bridge traversing the natural beauty of Oldsmar's Mobbly Bayou Wilderness Preserve, near Bicentennial Park in the northwest Tampa suburb. Zip-liners begin the course by ascending a 60-foot tower, making it a great way to take in some amazing scenery – and perhaps conquer one's fear of heights in the process.
