IT CANNOT WORK WITHOUT YOU, dear diving instructors! I’m Joanna Kannenberg and diving is my passion. As a Course Director, I have been training diving instructors worldwide for over 20 years. The current global situation gives me the time for my long-planned doctoral thesis on burnout risks in our professional group. Many only see the sunny side of our work and only we know about the darker side.  

In order to make the largest possible well-substantiated study, I need as many completed surveys as possible! Please answer the questionnaires and also forward the link to your diving instructor friends / employees.  

Thank you for your help! See you under water ☺ https://burnout.webankieta.pl

NO FUNCIONA SIN VOSOTROS, queridos instructores de buceo!

Soy Joanna Kannenberg y bucear es mi pasión. Como Course Director, he dedicado más de 20 años a formar instructores de buceo por todo el mundo. La actual situación mundial me ha dado el tiempo necesario para preparar la tesis doctoral que tenía planeada desde hace mucho tiempo. Mi tesis versa en los riesgos de “quemarse del trabajo” en nuestro ámbito profesional. Muchos solo ven el lado soleado de nuestro trabajo y solo nosotros conocemos el lado más oscuro. 

Para hacer el estudio más amplio y bien fundamentado, necesito  cuántas más encuestas completadas como sea posible. Por favor, responde a las preguntas de la encuesta y envíasela a tus amigo / empleados que sean instructores de buceo. 

¡Gracias por tu ayuda! Nos vemos bajo el agua ☺!

The Art of Risk: What We can learn from The World’s Leading Risk-Takers

Published

on

By

One of the rescuers of the Thai soccer team (now the Netflix series ‘Thai Cave Rescue’) and former Australian of the Year explores why people are attracted to risky pursuits and what we can learn from their expertise. 

In June 2018, with the eyes of the world watching, Dr Richard Harris, or Harry to his mates, dived into a remote cave in northern Thailand in an attempt to rescue a Thai youth soccer team who had become trapped by flash flooding. He used his recreational skills in diving to traverse kilometres of the subterranean cave system, and his professional skills as an anesthetist to sedate the stranded boys so they could be dived and carried to safety. Despite incredible odds, all twelve boys, along with their coach, survived. 

Harry says he was able to succeed in the Thai cave because of decades of experience, comprising thousands of hours of careful planning, risk assessment and management. Often described as the most dangerous sport in the world, Harry never feels like he is doing anything particularly dangerous when he goes cave diving. Despite losing friends to the sport, in his mind the risks can be managed well enough to make the pastime extremely safe. And far from making him anxious or fearful, the planning and execution of potentially high-risk dives have been empowering and fulfilling. In his mind, carefully managed risk-taking gives him the courage to manage the day-to-day stresses of life in the 21st century.

In The Art of Risk, Harry talks to like-minded risk-takers about their adventures and asks them what is it about cheating death that makes them feel so alive. He aims to explore the active pursuit of risk through the lens of risk-takers and adventurers such as soldiers, pilots, mountaineers, rock climbers, deep-sea divers, sailors, big-wave surfers, firefighters, rally-car drivers – both professionals and amateurs. His conversations give us insights into what motivates these people and why a life without risk is no life at all. He believes that by doing ‘the hard things’ in life you can push yourself a little harder and become stronger, more courageous and resilient.

Selling Points

  • FASCINATING SUBJECT: why do deep-sea divers, free climbers and big-wave surfers take the risks that they do? How do soldiers and firefighters manage risk? What can we learn from how they prepare – and what they experience – that we can take into our own lives? Harris shows that in doing ‘the hard thing’, we become more resilient and courageous.

  • EXPERT AUTHOR: Dr Harry Harris was at the heart of the Thai Caves rescue, anesthetizing all the boys in order to get them out. A genuine hero and former Australian of the year, Harry Harris explores flooded caves deep underground for fun. For most people, this is the definition of a nightmare. Because Harry understands and can prepare for the risks, for him it’s a pleasurable – even meditative – experience. And, as he says, he feels ‘carefully managed risk-taking gives him the courage to manage the day to day stresses of life in the 21st century’.
  • FAMOUS INTERVIEWEES: Harry talks with people like climber Alex Honnold, sailor Jessica Watson, mountaineer James Scott, film director and deep-sea diver James Cameron and polar explorer Tim Jarvis, amongst many others. 
  • MAN BEHIND THE NETFLIX SERIES: ‘Thai Cave Rescue’ is fresh onto Netflix, further pushing awareness of the story.
