Claire Williams Steps Down 2020

It's the end of an era. Claire Williams has stepped down as Deputy Team Principal of Williams Racing, after the team was sold to Dorilton Capital. A decision that will undoubtedly have a massive impact on the whole team. It's no secret that they have had their fair share of ups and downs over the past years. But there is no denying that this team is legendary and belongs in Formula 1.

From a behavioral perspective, it will be fascinating to see what this will do to the dynamics within the team. Change leads to unpredictability, and unpredictability triggers a stress response. If the team is able to frame this change and subsequent unpredictability as a challenge (instead of a threat), the stress response may push them to the next level.

Mindset plays a huge role here. Are they creative? Are they flexible? Are they able to take ownership, collaborate, and show courage moving forward? Time will tell, but I for one am rooting for a future with Williams back on the podium!

All journeys come to an end
