Army veteran teaches survival skills to civilians

Whether it's zipping across the treetops or searching for something that's right in front of you, Joe DeRing believes learning Army survival skills could be the key to better office management.

In the Army for eight years, DeRing served in the 101st Airborne Division in Iraq. But it was when he graduated from Ranger School in 2002 that he had his aha moment.

"I thought to myself -- at that point in time -- I believe because of the training, because of my experience, I can do anything I want," said DeRing.

He realized his military training could help civilians improve their everyday lives, so he started Empower Adventures.

"We can help coach them to overcome that fear, stress and anxiety -- and allow it to become a place of strength," said DeRing.

FOX 5's Laura Evans went along as a veterinary office group completed a series of challenges in hopes of improving how they work together.
