A day in the life of Deviate and one of our clients, CrossFit Annapolis. This video highlights the topics, questions, and activities of our Alignment Retreat, which is the first phase of our Organizational Design Initiative. This retreat was hosted at the United States Naval Academy and Chesapeake Bay Foundation's world HQ in Annapolis, MD for the senior leadership team of CrossFit Annapolis.

We lead difference-makers in business, sports, and entertainment to deviate from the norm to achieve the extraordinary.

In the pursuit of greatness, there is no such thing as resting, coasting, or simply maintaining; staying on top is often more difficult than getting there. Once we've tasted success it fuels our desire for more; and, with it comes higher expectations and pressure. Greatness is achieved by going off track, on purpose and by willfully deviating from sameness, average, and ordinary.

          Contact us today if it's time to deviate from accepting less than the best and you're ready to leave behind mediocrity in pursuit of excellence.

            Does your culture support 1 or 2?

            These posts, Leading Positivity and Positivity Ratio, taught us how our words shape 
            our successes and failures. 

            We’ve also talked about the Greek philosopher Epictetus’ quote… 

            “We have two ears and one mouth so that we can listen twice as much as we speak.” 

            This and recent events led me to share these lessons with you…
