E142 - Jost Capito: The upside of having nothing to prove

Jost Capito is a German Motorsport manager and current CEO and Team Principal of Williams Racing Formula One Team. He joined Williams during Covid, in this episode he shares the difficulties that came with joining then and how he cultivates a family feel in a large company, where many employees work remotely. 

Jost has an open door policy and chooses not to use an office, he discusses with Jake and Damian how important it is for his employees to feel valued and listened to. In this episode they explore the cost of living a life that is relentlessly driven to find victory, what you have to lose to achieve great things.  The objective is always to win, for Jost and his team there is no consideration of the alternative. 

Jost discusses the importance of being a boss that has experienced a range of roles, “if you are a good leader, no job has to be too hard for you”.
