Real life example of Left of Boom in action:
What Is Left Of Boom
As the name implies, First Responders react to a critical situation instead of preventing it. Sentir Global trains and develops individuals to be “First Preventers”.
Bryson W. – received training to identify threats from non-verbal behavior, emotional content and to identify body-bombers from Lee prior to his deployment to Afghanistan. Upon his return to civilian live, Bryson was attending church on a Sunday morning when a man entered the church about half-way through the service carrying a military-style bag. He sat in the front pew. Bryson noticed several of the indicators that Lee had taught him regarding body-bombers and emotional detection. Bryson then moved up to sit right next to this man. After the service, Bryson departed, and two under-cover law enforcement officers took the man into a side room. The next Wednesday evening Bryson was attending a Bible study when the lead pastor took him aside and said that he had prevented a “really bad thing” from happening and thanked him.
LEFT OF BOOM is a simple and proactive concept with BOOM being the negative event. LEFT OF BOOMis the timeline before a terrible event where better observation skills and knowledge can reduce or eliminate that threat (think of any number of terrorist attacks or criminal activity).
