In the high-octane world of motorsport, success often hinges on split-second decisions, precise coordination, creativity, teamwork and unwavering mental fortitude. Any advantage can make the difference between victory and defeat. In a pioneering move, the TreasuryONE Motorsport team has embraced an unconventional approach in their preparation for Dakar 2024.
As far as we know, for the first time in Dakar history, HBDI profiles have been used in a team’s participation, and we are excited to see the outcome…!
HBDI: A Mental Game-Changer:
The Herrmann Brain Dominance Instrument, or HBDI for short, is a tool that assesses thinking preferences, providing insights into how individuals process information and make decisions. While it’s commonly used in various industries to enhance team dynamics, improve communication, and stimulate innovation, its application in motorsport is a groundbreaking leap into uncharted territory. Hennie de Klerk, the driver and owner of the TreasuryONE team, introduced the concept of whole-brain thinking to his team members.
Diverse Thinking Styles for Multifaceted Challenges:
Motorsport is a complex sport that demands a multifaceted approach. From engineers fine-tuning a vehicle’s performance to drivers navigating treacherous terrains, each aspect of the sport requires a unique cognitive skill set. Here, HBDI profiles shine by illuminating the diverse thinking styles within a team.
The Impact on Team Dynamics:
By understanding how team members think and process information, they can tailor strategies, communication, and problem-solving approaches to optimise performance.
Anticipation Builds for Dakar 2024:
In motorsport, where every detail counts, this groundbreaking approach could well be the key to unlocking victory for the TreasuryONE team.
We look forward to seeing how Hennie and the team perform at the DAKAR – and wish them all the best!
