Late September 2015 was a busy time for both Skydiving Innovations and its client Rewire, Inc.(www.rewireinc.com)
Rewire CEO Steve Scanlon and President Jason Abell tasked Skydiving Innovations and its teambuilding unit “S.I. Teambuilding” with providing inspiring and compelling speakers, a physically and intellectually challenging teambuilding activity based on Naval Special Warfare training evolutions, followed by a one of a kind tandem skydiving adventure, all for their 2015 “Rewire Retreat” held annually at the Loews Coronado Bay Resort.
S.I. speakers JC Ledbetter and Larry B took Rewire Retreat participants through an eye-opening conversation about Naval Special Warfare, and how members of that incredible community of SEALs and SWCCs become the extraordinary warriors this country relies upon to achieve critical outcomes from difficult, dangerous and grueling missions. JC and Larry brought that conversation home for participants by identifying the key elements that are common to business and military success.
Beginning at 05:45 the next morning, Larry and JC led the Rewire Retreat team through a personalized two hour teambuilding bootcamp that was based directly on the training methodologies of Naval Special Warfare. Silver Strand State Beach was the site of this compelling program, and each guest received a mild taste of what US Navy SEALs and SWCCs go through during the initial phases of their training, and were presented with thoughts on the most important elements of success: persistence, preparation, team before self, trust in self, training and desire. “If you want something bad enough, you will find a way to make it happen”.
Just a day later, the Rewire team joined JC, Larry and four other members of the Naval Special Warfare community for tandem skydives from 13,000 feet. Safely strapped to their NSW Tandem Masters and clocking in at freefall speeds in excess of 100 miles per hour, 14 Rewire Retreat members took the plunge and experienced epiphanic moments of personal clarity and vision. The program wrapped up with smiles and hugs all around, and a promise to return!
