Ignition’s Leadership & Teamwork Learning and Development series arrives on the Grid

March 16, 2021

Motorsport Tickets, in partnership with its Corporate Learning partner, Ignition Human Performance takes the wraps off its latest webinar series aimed at small and medium-sized business owners looking to turbocharge their people strategies and results, as they move to focus on a world post-Covid.

Ignition Human Performance is bringing its wealth of connections and knowledge from within high-performance motorsport to unlock people performance in business and personal development. Normally these learnings are reserved for organisations, but in partnership with Motorsport Tickets, for the first time ever Ignition Human Performance is making all its course information and tools available to you, as part of a learning and development series.

The course consists of three key modules, each covered over two three-hour sessions, which draw from lessons learnt through motorsport. The first is Personal Leadership, which explores subjects such as, how to develop your own style using lessons from F1 Leaders, looking at case studies such as Brawn GP’s fantastic Championship-winning season.

The second module is How to Build a High-Performance Team. It also draws on examples like how Jaguar became Red Bull and laid down the fantastic success in the early 2010s and getting the most out of your team, using the F1 pit stop as an example. Like the Personal Leadership module, it is held across two three-hour sessions.

While you can enrol on either or both Personal Leadership or Teamwork modules, the course is concluded with ‘Preparing for Success’, an exclusive session led by Simon Reynolds, the former McLaren Driver Performance Coach who now runs Formula To Perform. Using the High-Performance Mindset Framework that Reynolds has developed with many professional drivers including Stoffel Vandoorne and 2019 F2 Champion Nyck De Vries, hones in on why preparation is the key to success both on and off track.

The sessions will be presented by Ignition Founder Nick Butcher and ex McLaren Performance Coach Simon Reynolds, pictured here last September at the Autosport Studio

Prospective candidates can enrol on either Personal Leadership or How to Build a High-Performance Team, and Preparing for Success for £150. Those wishing to take part in all three modules can do so for £250.

In addition, five per cent of course fees will be donated by Ignition Human Performance to two great charities: Sir Jackie Stewart OBE’s “Race Against Dementia” and Damon Hill OBE’s “halow project”, enabling them to continue their great work.

The Courses will be delivered on Ignition's brand new Virtual Learning Platform, which was debuted back in February with F1 World Champions Sir Jackie Stewart OBE and Damon Hill OBE, to raise funds for their respective charities Race Against Dementia and the halow project, who will also receive a donation as part of you attending these courses!

Richard Gibson-Venner, Marketing Director at Motorsport Tickets said: “We’re really pleased to be able to broaden our partnership with Ignition and support them with the power of our technology platform. Covid has been a challenging time for us all, and with an array of SME business owners within our database and for whom we work with, this development series is for them; ensuring they are best placed to maximise their business growth.”

All sessions will be run via Ignitions’ brand new bespoke Virtual Learning Platform (which was launched in February and hosted “The Mindset of Champions” with Sir Jackie Stewart OBE and Damon Hill OBE, to raised £7,500 for their respective charities Race Against Dementia and the halow project) to give you the opportunity to go on a fully immersive learning experience to understand how Leadership and Teamwork works with Motorsport.

Nick Butcher, Executive Director at Ignition added: “There have been many great leaders and examples of exceptional Teamwork in Formula One and other High-Performance Motorsport, from team bosses like Toto Wolff and Ron Dennis, to the current Mercedes success and Ferrari in the early 00s. What can we learn from what we see at a race weekend that can translate into our own personal and management styles? We have delivered these Leadership and Teamwork courses to Corporate clients from multiple industries with great success and I’m really excited through our excellent partnership with Motorsport Tickets to be able to offer them now to entrepreneurs of smaller business and F1 fans looking to develop the love of the sport even further. We look forward to welcoming you on Ignition’s new Virtual Learning Platform.”
