Tigerswan and Veterans’ Training with Chevy SUVs

 

TigerSwan CEO Jim Reese poses with locals in AfghanistanJames Reese founded Tigerswan in 2007. He established the Service-Disabled, Veteran owned business to provide Crisis Management, Risk Management, and Global Affairs consulting services. The company has branches spanning from Latin America to Iraq. James Reese is a retired member of the 1st Special Forces Operational Detachment-Delta after 25 years of service. The US Army retired Lt. Colonel graduated from Mansfield University with a bachelor’s degree in Communication and journalism.

Tigerswan team had an exclusive excursion with James Reese, Chevrolet, and former members of the United States elite Delta Force Team. The Range Complex (TRC), a combat training facility in North Carolina, hosted the Chevy event. The purpose of the event was to highlight how the Chevy Suburban and Tahoe are valuable to the secret service and the United States elite Special Forces. Additionally, everyone had the opportunity for target practice using a long-range rifle some 800 meters in the distance. The Tigerswan team also experienced a simulated hostage rescue mission. The training showed how much the armed forces work hard to protect the country.

They were humbled to see how the Special Forces navigate the truck in unfamiliar territory using nothing but infrared goggles to pull off a high stake mission in the middle of the night. James Reese and the Tigerswan team took turns to drive the popular SUVs in a simulated covert mission. They were overwhelmed by shooting a shotgun while a former Delta Force member drove to speeds up to 100 mph in pitch-black darkness. James Reese provided his team an opportunity to see how the Chevy SUVs live up to their reputation and also to experience a combat environment.

The SUVs are equipped with off-road tires, skid plates, and a unique suspension system making it popular among special military teams like Delta Force. James Reese, a co-founder of TRC, said the Special Forces need a car that will move even when shot at. He added that a Tahoe once saved him and his commander in Baghdad. He told his Tigerswan team how the military operates using brilliance in the basics. They do not need something fancy, only something that works.

Vijay Eswaran and the Sphere of Silence

Sphere of Self-Management

In his latest book, the Sphere of Silence (2005), Vijay Eswaran, executive officer of the Q1 Group advocates an hour a day of silence as a means to getting to know and like oneself better. Ultimately, says Vijay Eswaran this leads to better productivity and he understands productivity as a direct outcome of spending time with oneself as a time for reflection on things that matter to oneself. Sphere of Silence has been called a meticulously powerful book leading a person to a method of tranquility.

Practice of Silence

The practice put forth in the book is for a person to spend time in self-reflection daily, which Vijay Eswaran witnessed while he was staying at a Franciscan Monastery in Italy when a youth. But it wasn’t only the example of the Franciscan monks that inspired him to the sphere of silence, but it was his grandfather, who was very instrumental in his upbringing to be encouraged with this idea of the healing qualities of spending time of silence daily. According to Vijay Eswaran this time of putting self in an atmosphere of silence, where no talking or listening to music is for self-managing purposes.

Silence in Noted Leaders

Vijay Eswaran notes many. leading historical figures in his book who used silence as a self-managing practice: Gandhi, Picasso, Mandela, to name a few. The silence is not meant to be used in growing one’s legs in a lotus position since that would be Vedic yoga, but this sphere of silence is meant to be for recapturing the joy of being oneself, rather than expending oneself for others without exercising self-control and motivation that comes from deep within oneself.

Sphere and QI

Vijay Eswaran recommends his method of self-control, self-management and inner guidance of using silence to start a day to his associates throughout his organizations, which is the QI group of companies he has founded and acts as the executive officer. One of the amazing things about the method of the sphere of silence is the powerful force it has on this new generation who Vijay Eswaran, believes spend more time in service to others than the previous generation, called baby-boomers, yet are left with less meaning in their lives when it should be otherwise.

Breaking the Habits that Bind Us

According to Vijay Eswaran, we become bound by the boundaries we set, which are boundaries that others have set for us and we grow up to accept them without questioning them. The Sphere of Silence is meant to give each person a set of tools to use to begin proper self-management again, to question the habits that bind us to value, rules, and regulating behaviors that do not ring true with our deepest self. In the wakeful state of inner silence and external silence, practiced daily, we can return to values that we freely choose and practice rather than to be swept away on the moral platitudes fed to us by society or the pressure groups, fads, and isms that produce a wealth of attitude but often do not free people to be themselves. Vijay ultimately would want this for everyone, but to those who are part of his QI Group, he would ask them to adopt these methods to free themselves to be the best they can become in their works.
