Real life example of Left of Boom in action:
Sentir Global, Inc.
Global Security Enhanced by the Power of Experience and Technology
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 BOOM means to be aware of a situation or developing situation and proactively take corrective action to prevent a bad or life threatening situation. Unfortunately, First Responders (police, fire, security, military) usually come after the shooting, robbery, fire, explosion (think Beruit).
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”.
