Today, the Rotary Club of La Jolla kindly hosted Skydiving Innovations’ Speaker Ron Lee at their weekly meeting, held at the La Valencia Hotel in La Jolla, California. Invited to speak by Kevin Quinn, the club’s President-Elect, Ron spoke on the subject of risk, and how deliberately taking on intelligent risks provides a crucible for personal development. His thrilling multi-media presentation, punctuated with video of his recent skydiving projects, provided guests with a window in to the world of professional demonstration skydiving, and detailed his assertion that risk, fear, struggle and failure, in varying degrees, are the required precursors to personal learning, success and fulfillment.
For interested organizations, Ron’s customized presentations further define the subject, and outline the tools needed to incorporate intelligent risk in corporate environments. Managers and executives learn how allowing employees to fail without recrimination leads to stronger teams that learn faster and are more committed to the organization’s success.
