Turn the Ship Around!
As a former Naval officer, L. David Marquet writes of his time as a newly appointed captain of the USS Santa Fe. Marquet takes the reader through his leadership journey which involves relinquishing control rather than taking it. By initiating a “leader-leader” model instead of a “leader-follower” model, Captain David Marquet successfully transforms the USS Santa Fe from the worst-performing submarine in its fleet to the best, in less than a year. Marquet provides key principles for any organization to use to develop leaders and create passionate, high-performing work environments.
