Team Builders Plus – About Us

Team Builders Plus set out in 1991 with a passion for developing individuals, teams and organizations in a way that was interactive, memorable, and created sustained personal, professional, and organizational success. As one of the first team building companies in the United States, Team Builders Plus paved the way for how companies now engage in team events.

By 1994, Team Builders Plus added DISC styles training, 360-degree feedback assessment, and executive coaching to a growing list of services. Over the years, Team Builders Plus continued to create innovative team building programs and in 2007, Team Builders Plus acquired Teambuilding, Inc. to become the largest team building company in the country. Team Builders Plus led the way in evolving team building from basic “low ropes” outdoor exercises to a wide range of exercises including building bikes for at-risk children, leading technology-driven treasure hunts, creating and facilitating web-based team surveys and delivering team development sessions designed specifically for senior teams.

In 2012, Merrick Rosenberg, cofounder of Team Builders Plus coauthored Taking Flight!, a fable about the DISC styles that creatively links the four styles with Eagles, Parrots, Doves and Owls. The training program, called Taking Flight with DISC, has been described as the most interactive and impactful DISC training program ever created.

The team building programs range from fun team retreats to intensive executive team interventions and everything in between. The Team Builders Plus assessment services help individuals, teams and organizations to gain a clear perspective on their strengths and challenges. And our expert survey designers and executive coaches turn 360-degree feedback into concrete results.

Team Builders Plus has worked with hundreds of small and medium sized companies, numerous government agencies and more than two-thirds of the current Fortune 100 list. Our founders, Merrick Rosenberg and Jeff Backal, cofounder of Team Builders Plus, were selected the Alumni Entrepreneurs of the Year from Drexel University, where they incubated the idea for the company. Team Builders Plus is proud to have repeatedly been recognized as one of the Fastest Growing Companies & Best Places to Work (by the Philadelphia Business Journal), one of the Fastest Growing Privately Held Companies in the U.S. (by Inc. magazine) and as the New Jersey Business of the Year (by NJ Biz magazine).

What do all these awards mean for you? It means you’re in good hands. Team Builders Plus not only knows how to drive success, but also how to create a winning culture.
