A look back: Francesco Friedrich, the 2013 as the youngest bobsleigh champion of all time in history, makes his reputation as a winner all honor.

A bobsleigh ride that is funny ...

Overview

... a bobsleigh ride, that's nice! Certainly, if it is crowned with success or even the first time with the gold medal.

Also in Company In projects, projects often turn into the ice channel in the figurative sense of the word, speed is taken up in the planning phase, and in the implementation, a team steers, as it were, counter to the finish curve by curve. In sports as in business applies: Who wants to emerge from the race for medals, jobs or the project goal as a winner, nothing is left to chance.

Agile guiding

Overview

In VUCA-ZIn the face of globalization and digitization, many companies are fixated on short-term results - measurable in hard facts and key figures. For long-term success, however, it is increasingly important to focus on values, culture and employees.

Agile leadership means repeatedly incorporating and exploring different conditions, reevaluating them, and reacting to new ones. As is natural for Francesco Friedrich. Each course comes up with different conditions. The change from the two to the four-man bob wants to be mastered. In the team, flexibility comes first.

Presence and training

Overview

Many leadership situations - whether in the bobsleigh at Francesco Friedrich or in companies - are characterized by opposite expectations. To position oneself in these areas of conflict makes up the sovereignty in the leadership role. Leadership means navigating as well as overcoming hurdles and making decisions.

Only with permanent presence and continuous training can this succeed. Not unlike in competitive sports. The bob pilot said: "If decisions are made in the sense of the team, they are also secured. In the race, we need to literally rely on each other blindly. "

Passion and discipline

Overview

Francesco Friedrich had to learn that his early victory as the youngest bobsled champion was no guarantee for the continued success. But he has accepted the low of Sochi as a challenge and proved with a lot of perseverance and discipline that he "Olympia can".

"Controlling and pushing is just as important as keeping the team on course and enduring pressure to perform," says Friedrich. With strong hands and sensitivity, he has created the basis for long-term progress in such a professional manner.

5 tips for agile leadership

Overview

This story shows that companies can learn a lot about agile leadership from the Olympic champion. 5 tips.

  1. Mental preparation: Rituals help the athletes to start as a true team and to mentally prepare themselves for victory.
  2. Startup phase: The start must be right. Even though it takes a lot of effort in the beginning, in the startup phase it helps to set a bar to create the harmony.
  3. Acceleration: When the bob takes off, everyone must be able to get as small as possible. Except for the pilot who steers, all heads duck down. There is blind trust that the pilot knows what he is doing. Everyone does their job.
  4. Subsections: On the bobsled track, split times indicate the course of the race. The pilot knows if they are doing well. Only when a team knows if it is in time and moves forward according to its plan can it change the strategy if necessary.
  5. Home straight: Often the home straight decides on success or defeat. Only those who manage to keep their concentration up to the end and still give everything on the last stage will be rewarded.

Conclusion: what executives can learn from Olympic champions

Overview

In sports, often a lot happens in one season. Even in companies, employees have to adapt to new bosses more often and faster through changing project teams (and vice versa).

The framework conditions are not always ideal, the only decisive factor is how we classify them, how we deal with them, and whether, like Francesco Friedrich, we ultimately grow. Get the gold medal!
