Lead your best life
The day we think we know it all is the day our minds close to learning.
My name is Shane Irving, my background is 23 years in military and law enforcement Special Operations. I am founder and owner of OPS, a specialist training organisation which is a nexus between subject matter experts, academia and front-line responders. We also test and train special forces in weapons handling and provide targeted elite strength & conditioning solutions for people in front-line service roles, like our police force.
In recent years as I came to the end of my Law Enforcement career I became very circumspect and reflective on all the training I had been exposed to over the years. I asked myself if I had done it right, if the agencies I was engaged with had done it right, were we adequately prepared for the operations that were asked of us. I set out on a quest to find better ways for our Special Operations community to train and perform. I explored and started following all sorts of high performers in all sorts of different fields, became very interested in cognitive performance, technology, eastern philosophies, and became exposed to new and ground breaking research
I humbly commenced my own PhD research with Bond University Tactical Research Unit in Australia and realised very quickly how limited my knowledge was and how much there was to explore.
I practice gratitude daily for my lived experiences, lessons learnt and hungry for more as the world evolves rapidly. Through our companies we believe in giving back all our teachings to our protector community and new communities as we expand into industry, corporate and academia. Join us on this journey of discovery and lets all push our boundaries and ‘Live Limitless’.

A Life Template
A simple acronym developed into a framework, a checklist I adopted in every decision, every interaction. Over time, and I am taking months and years, it became my team’s operating guide. And since then, it has progressed into not only a leadership and communication tool with proven outcomes, the Vowel Code has become a life template, a way of thinking, communicating and living.
The Vowel Code: A, E, I, O, U
A - Attitude
E - Ego
I - Integrity
O - Ownership
U - Understanding
