Captain L. David Marquet had a life-changing experience as a Leader. He became commander of a submarine he knew little about. After a near-disastrous decision, he vowed to not give any orders and replace them with intent. This way he turned followers into proactive, thinking and acting leaders. He transferred the psychological ownership of the submarine to his crew. By changing the way he spoke and acted towards his crew, USS Santa Fe became the best performing ship in Navy history. Ever.

The VR Dive is an ingenious simulation of one of the most remarkable leadership experiments in history.

As newly appointed commander (now retired) of the nuclear submarine USS Santa Fe, David Marquet faced a ship dogged by poor morale, the worst performance in the fleet and very limited time to prove itself worthy of not being dissolved. In an incredibly courageous ploy, he brought a completely new leadership mindset to the team which fundamentally changed their methods and achieved a vastly more powerful model of giving control.

It’s this exceptional success story which gave birth to THE VR DIVE: The expertise of professionals and the wisdom of years compressed into a one-day VR experience.

Like David Marquet, you can expose your team to the exact same environment; undertaking high-pressure challenges but with a radical new level of individual control. With all members assuming leadership responsibility, you will gain a new awareness of what needs to change to reach where you want to be: an ultra-high performance team.

It is an “eye-opening exercise to the future of the work culture with the highest levels of team motivation and performance“
