This is what you get when you blend body and mind with
leadership development, collaboration, and strategic planning.

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.

          • How Many Direct Reports Should You Have?

            We’ve found too many leaders over-promise and under-deliver. They don’t mean to… it just happens. 

            We’ve also found that people don’t quit their “job” they truthfully “break up” with their boss. Nine times out of 10, people quit people. 

            Majority of the time when we ask bright, emerging leaders … What’s one thing you expected from your boss that you aren’t getting? … what do you think is their response? 

          • Is the Payoff Worth It?

            Amanda Blanck

            Think about the behaviors you have you wish you could change:

            • Over committed
            • Micro-manager
            • People pleaser at the sacrifice of yourself
            • Works all the time
            • Involved in the drama

            Subconsciously you have a deep inner belief fueling these behaviors. You wouldn’t do it unless there was some sort of payoff.
