3, 6 & 9 month Leadership, Growth & Change programs to deliver measurable results
Building Your Pitstop Program
Pitstop programs are built to meet the specific needs of organizations and teams from 8 components.
Programs are customised to client needs and are of 3, 6 and 12 months duration. They combine; performance analytics, behavioral analysis and high-impact team workshops, called pitstops.
8 Pitstop Program Components
Inspired by the use of BIG data to drive performance in F1™, the PitStop Analytics™ platform scientifically measures performance and potential within organizations, business units, teams, and individuals. It captures 186 performance variables to enable data-driven decisions in respect of talent, alignment, purpose, structure, strategy-execution, teamwork and culture.
Data gathering is cloud-based and takes just 26 mins per person. Once the data is gathered algorithms and predictive models take over systematically scanning for performance losses, risks, and gains – measuring, categorizing, and prioritizing them.
Users can visualize their performance data in an intuitive manner – patterns and trends are recognized automatically, and attention drawn to performance alerts, blind-spots, and contradictions. Thus, data is transformed into actionable insight – pointing leaders and their teams to key winning moves that will transform performance losses into gains.
Definition of Winning
Pitstop programs are infused with a passion for winning, just like F1™. They look beyond mission statements and goals, to connect leaders and their teams with a compelling definition of winning that fuels both purpose and passion.
Programs test levels of organization and team ambition, as well as alignment in terms of purpose, priorities, and results. A key objective is a renewed sense of forward momentum, as well as potency and resilience for the team.
Pitstop programs are about movement and winning. Individuals working alone and in teams will tackle identified performance losses (as highlighted by the data). Examples include; advancing a key business priority, improved team functioning, or tackling a cumbersome work process. These ‘Winning Moves’ are the practical means by which quantifiable performance gains will be realized & embedded.
In addition to being tests of execution, Winning Moves are also aimed at building execution capacity, as well as confidence and resilience.
There is a psychology to performance – that is to say attitudes and behaviors play an important role. So, too do the dynamics within a group or team including its culture and norms.
An organization or team is a complex social system and the process of change requires engaging with (and respectfully challenging) embedded patterns of behavior. To do this pitstop programs leverage the latest insights from the fields of social psychology and behavioral economics.
Pitstop workshops bring executives, groups and teams together to focus on their own performance opportunities and challenges with a renewed level of energy and engagement. Your team(s) will work as a pit crew. The idea is just like in racing – to come together as a team, identify problems and fix them fast!
Pitstops are simulations of the ‘real team’ in action and involve a series of exercises to test and build levels of task effectiveness, decision smarts and social health/cohesion. They are also the basis for a structured process of behavioural observation by leaders of their teams.
Leader & Team Coaching
Starting something is easy, however keeping it going is often not. PitStop coaching will help sustain the momentum behind the process of change and ‘Winning Move’ movement.
The role of the PitStop coach is to support (as well as to respectfully challenge) the leader while individuals and the team clarify Winning Moves, review progress and learn from success, obstacles or set-backs. In addition, the coach guides the leader through the effective use of the performance data generated by Pitstop Analytics™, behavioural observation of the team and self-analysis (of personal performance design and dynamics).
In a pitstop there is little time for theory and discussion. Action is required and fast learning too – that is why Pitstop programs employ Results-Based Learning™ (RBL). This involves individuals working in small groups on their own priorities to achieve specific measurable results while growing in confidence and learning through the process.
Team members are provided access to results-based learning modules (22 in total) and toolkits to support their Winning Moves and personal/career development.
In planning a Pitstop program the BIG question is a great place to start. It focuses attention on not just the performance, but potential of your organization, business unit or team needs.
The answer to the BIG question determines the type of Pitstop Program your organization, business unit or team.
It is also the basis for setting measurable performance-related goals for what a Pitstop Program should achieve.
Getting the data to answer this question is the solid foundation on which programs are built.
Pitstop Programs are tailored to reflect your unit/team’s key opportunities and challenges, goals and strategies.
Pistop programs meet your leaders and their teams where they are. That is thanks to powerful and fast performance analytics.
For example, if your team is today performing at 55% or 65%, the objective is to increase that score by 5%, 10% or more by tackling those factors that inhibit performance.
