Steve Nevey Formerly Red Bull Racing on “Controlling the Controllable”

In this members-only video Steve Nevey shares his insights on being the best: how you get winning performances by identifying and planning for the unexpected. In the talk, Steve draws on 22 years of experiences of working with Formula 1 and most recently Red Bull Racing.

Wavelength Connect is a great leadership programme offering members a range of events across a yearlong programme. Wavelength has high calibre speakers, individuals who are leaders in some of the world’s most progressive companies. Our speakers offer our members “a warts and all” insight into their companies and their leadership experiences. For this reason some of our speakers’ videos are only available to our members who attended the event.

In this video Steve Nevey draws on his experience of working with Red Bull Racing  and in Formula 1 to tell us about “controlling the controllable”. In essence Steve says that if there is anything that could be in your control then learn as much as you can about it so it becomes in your control. This helps to minimise the unpredictable things that happen when running a business. And when those unpredictable things do happen you can deal with it, discuss the situation with your team, put in new procedures, and practice so it becomes second nature.

It is important to take notice of the little things because they can make all the difference to success or failure.
