Psychology of racing expert, Dr. Patrick Cohn, at racingpsychology.com helps NASCAR, Motocross, and motorcycle racers improve performance and lap times by boosting mental toughness, focus, and confidence on race day. Learn mental racing tips and strategies for motocross and auto racing.
In today’s racing psychology session, I discuss how to improve your race team dynamics.
I answer the following racing teamwork question:
“My main challenge is team dynamics and the friction caused by one very talented and hard working individual who disrupts the team. How can I mentally get past this problem?”
Learn the top mental racing strategies to improve team cohesion.
Teamwork is very important to achieve success on the racetrack. Team communication and support are the most important factors to improve your mental attitude for racing.
The first step to dealing with team conflict is to address the problem as a team. It is important to address the issue rather than ignoring the problem.
Have a team meeting to openly discuss team goals and expectations of team members throughout the season.

That’s the usual approach described there, in the audio file. But, it may not work, because if there’s a guy you’re having trouble working with, it’s a big possibility that he’s not open to getting into a session with a psychologist.
Another possibility is.. if you’re the one that’s racing, means you’re the one everyone’s focused on, so you should be able to decide firing the guy and hiring someone else. This should be a backup solution. Good luck!
