Summit take away… Everyone who knows me knows that my mind is always spinning. I walk into a space or have an opportunity to experience a service or facility and I evaluate. “What do I like, dislike? Think they could do better? What can we do better and what am I going to take from this experience and make it our own?” There was a LOT of that from me over the Summit weekend. That's just me though - Going to Baltimore I was excited to connect with the individuals in the field I have become friends with and share some business insights while absorbing some from their brains as well. As Mike mentioned in his recap, TD’s speech was absolutely phucking incredible! I mean that got me so fired up it was crazy! But all of this wasn’t my biggest take away from the summit. My biggest takeaways hit me on the ride back and the week following.
MY TEAM! It’s not often I write in this manner (of I) but in this instance - I’m going to! The CPC staff is a cohesive, bad-ass group of industry professionals. This means I’m about to brag because I couldn’t have been more proud watching my team just be themselves. This team carried itself with such a poise and confidence but NEVER arrogance. They know their stuff, they live this active lifestyle and coach it on the daily. I can honestly say CPC stood out. Everyone on this team moved well and executed the exercises/movements with an intensity and passion for what they do. They met new people with a smile, a handshake and a genuine interest in learning their story. They coached the partner they just met through an exercise ensuring that individual was getting a valuable takeaway from each breakout session of how THEY could move better.
As Amber stated, everyone is doing the same movement but it doesn’t ensure people are moving in the same manner. CPC filled in this gap for some. This team was always amongst the first to show up in the morning, the last ones to leave and always took advantage of having fun in a learning environment.
So, my biggest take away from the Summit… They aren’t yet famous, they don’t have 10’s of thousands of followers, clients or media surrounding them. But they are industry leading and have nothing but amazing things in their future. This facility stands for something different. CPC doesn't do it the easy way. We hold ourselves to a higher standard and by doing so we have every right to hold you accountable to a higher standard as well. Not because we are elitists but because we know damn well you can achieve it. We listen to you, we know you and we're here to coach you. We live and breathe this field and do a really goddamn good job at it. So, call it cliché if you want but these this team… they “don’t talk about it. They are about it.” Don’t hate because we can’t describe it. You just have to experience it.
Proud beyond words of my team and can NOT wait to watch them light sh*t up in 2017!
