The average pit stop for a Formula One car lasts approximately 2.5 to 3.5 seconds. Hesitations, or even simple errors made by a crewmember often mean the difference between winning and losing for the team. The impact of a one-second delay could cost the team millions of dollars in sponsorships and multi-million-dollar contracts for the driver. One man, one error, for 3-seconds of his entire career, could be disastrous for a team made up of hundreds of people working.
Formula One racing isn’t very different than running a business, because hesitations lead to business loss. Who on your team is affected by your delays? Could you imagine losing a bonus or even your job because of a momentary hesitation?
What causes that hesitation?
Lack of Understanding
Lack of Confidence in Execution
Lack of Passion
Lack of Tenacity
Lack of Trust
Lack of Submission
Lack of Adaptability
The world of business is growing larger and moving more quickly than ever. Like pit crews in racing, every second counts. If the car is scheduled to come in for tires and fuel and the spilled fuel ignites a fire, do you trust your team to put the fire out without hesitation?
