The fastest teams in the world 🚀

The global pandemic has forced many organizations to change the way they work overnight. But this opportunity is bigger than mastering remote work and new tools. We have the chance to adopt a way of working that will make us faster, more resilient and ready for anything.
Right now, we need to be able to continuously steer and act on what is unfolding in front of us. We want to leverage everyone’s brainpower in the organization to stay afloat and became better and faster. We need an organization where people are highly engaged and can move fast without being held back by bureaucracy.
In my latest article in CEOWORLD (cross-posted on LinkedIn) I talk about four lessons from F1, the fastest teams in the world, that we can immediately apply:
  1. Be clear about what is essential
  2. Redesign your operating rhythm
  3. Accelerate decision making
  4. Reduce organizational drag

For an interview in Hacking.finance, I was asked to talk about the role of storytelling in organizational change, and the process we used for writing our book Formula X. Because of their unique site design, they asked if they could do a ‘special’ photoshoot (oh, and, don’t forget to try the 'banker mode’ on the bottom of the page). 🤓
Two more free seminars ⚡️
