“As a team, we don’t have a facility base,” the INEOS Team Principal begins in explanation. “We go to a race, we work together, and then we have to work very much geographically dispersed; a lot of the time it’s conference calls, Zoom calls – the way that everyone is working at the minute is familiar to us… we’re not racing, but it feels like a ramped-up business-as-usual to us.”
Nevertheless, Brailsford provided some typically thought-provoking insights during his appearance on At Home With Leaders, where he spoke to co-hosts Matthew Stone, Leaders’ Senior Product Manager, and sports psychologist and consultant Michael Caulfield, whose clients include Brentford FC, Northampton Saints RFC and Hampshire CCC.
Up for discussion were:
– Team INEOS’ three-stage approach to managing its organisation during the pandemic [6:00];
– Brushing off the envy of rivals and fellow competitors [23:00];
– Environmental factors that impact on what he terms the ‘discretionary’ aspects of performance [29:00];
– How his recent illness changed his perspective on work and life [37:00].
