Imagine this: you’re an F1 fan, and you’ve always dreamed of becoming the next long-running, successful team principal. Who better to learn from than a boss who’s won eight consecutive constructors’ championships?
That’s right. Toto Wolff (or Professor Wolff, if you’re part of Harvard Business School’s MBA programme 👀) is heading to university to share insights on high-performance leadership, organisational culture and personal effectiveness with the school’s MBA students.
Toto’s official role is Executive Fellow and he will serve as a guest lecturer.
It’s not the first time Toto has worked with Harvard Business School. Throughout the 2021 F1 season, professor Anita Elberse gained behind-the-scenes access to the Mercedes team, which resulted in a case study about Toto and his success with Mercedes.
In a press release, Toto said: “I feel very honoured and privileged to continue working with the incredibly bright young minds at Harvard.
“When I step on campus, I am inspired by the student’s curiosity and ambition, and I leave energised by the special learning environment they create together with the brilliant faculty.”
Elberse, a co-lecturer, said: “We very much look forward to welcoming Toto back to campus. I have seen first-hand how much our students benefit from learning about Toto’s leadership journey and from his deep knowledge of what it takes to run a highly successful sports team.”
We don’t go to Harvard, but if Toto could teach us how to run our lives more efficiently, that would be great.
