CINCINNATI, Ohio, Oct. 26, 2005 (PRIMEZONE) -- Whether one is
at the open door of an airplane with a parachute securely strapped
to his back or in a company setting with teammates at his side,
the principles for success are remarkably similar. In his new
book, 'Jump! Leaps in Organizational Performance & Teamwork,
A Skydiver's Perspective' (now available through AuthorHouse),
David L. Hart highlights the intriguing connection between skydiving
and organizational effectiveness.
By exploring the aspects of business through a fresh lens, his
commentary motivates leaders and their workforces to action. Both
skydiving and business ventures aim to land on specific targets,
and clearly communicating a shared vision ensures all on board
land in the same place. The ability to drive innovation is not
unlike the courage required to jump from an airplane and leap
outside established comfort zones. This courage breeds willingness
to continue after setbacks and failures.
The components of a parachute relate to colleagues from various
departments and divisions. Just as the intricate parts of a parachute
must work in unison, people at work must interact well together
to land on target. The suspension lines connect the skydiver to
the parachute, just as the suspension lines of organizations represent
a healthy culture of trust, accountability, commitment, effective
communication, initiative and preparation. The people who pack
parachutes are the people one hires and promotes within an organization.
Their performance directly affects whether the corporate parachute
will open and reach its intended destination.
'Jump!' is a revolutionary take on tried and true elements of
successful businesses. It stokes the fire of motivation and inspires
readers to take courageous leaps. For leaders seeking meaningful
and lasting performance increases and skyrocketing organizational
effectiveness and teamwork, Hart's new book is a successful catalyst
Hart is a national speaker, writer, trainer and former U.S. Army
Ranger. He leads the Jump Institute, which uses the skydiving
metaphor in seminars and training sessions that stimulate organizations
to action. He is also an active member of Team Fastrax, a professional
skydiving team. Hart has jumped from as high as 21,000 feet and
as low as 800 feet and into major events such as NASCAR races
and NCAA football games. A graduate of the
University of Cincinnati, he combines this experience with more
than 15 years in sales, management and marketing, including more
than five years as the founder and CEO of a national retail amusement
“We found great value in the content that David shared
with our employees, as well as the way he was able to tie our
SOAR goals in with his program. He’s exactly what we were
Lisa Francis, Vice President of Human Resources, Universal 1
David set the tone for the day as the keynote speaker.
He energized the participants and kept them on the edge of their
seats--hanging on to every word and video clip he presented.
A very creative way to apply skydiving to the hiring process
and fully engage the audience.

“WOW! What an awesome experience! Thank you very
much from each of us! You are definitely correct as you told
us when we arrived---everyone will be asking how it was &
we won't be able to fully describe or explain. No doubt this
is something a person must just experience. When we arrived
back in the office the next morning, word had spread throughout
the company. People in the plant were stopping us, asking about
the experience. So, once again, we want to say "THANKS!!"
for an awesome experience, (Team Fastrax was fantastic!) The
SHRM organization really appreciated your initial presentation;
you’ve created some excitement within SHRM AND JASPER!”
