'David Marquet is the kind of leader who comes around only once in a generation ... his ideas and lessons are invaluable' Simon Sinek, author of Start With Why
Captain David Marquet was used to giving orders. In the high-stress environment of the USS Santa Fe, a nuclear-powered submarine, it was crucial his men did their job well. But the ship was dogged by poor morale, poor performance and the worst retention in the fleet.
One day, Marquet unknowingly gave an impossible order, and his crew tried to follow it anyway. He realized he was leading in a culture of followers, and they were all in danger unless they fundamentally changed the way they did things.
Marquet took matters into his own hands and pushed for leadership at every level. Before long, his crew became fully engaged and the Santa Fe skyrocketed from worst t first in the fleet.
No matter your business or position, you can apply Marquet's approach to create a workplace where everyone takes responsibility for their actions, people are healthier and happier - and everyone is a leader.
%%%'I don't know of a finer model of this kind of empowering leadership than Captain Marquet' Stephen R. Covey
Turn the Ship Around is the gripping story of the USS Santa Fe - a nuclear submarine dogged by poor morale, poor performance, and the worst retention rate in the fleet - until David Marquet took command.
Captain Marquet took the ship from worst to best in its class by challenging the US Navy's traditional leader-follower approach. Instead, he gave up as much control and decision-making as possible to his team, creating a new framework he calls 'leader-leader'.
Marquet shows how he struggled against his instincts to take control, and how the effort paid off far more dramatically than he ever imagined.
No matter your business or position, you can apply Marquet's approach to create a workplace where everyone takes responsibility for their actions, people are healthier and happier and everyone is a leader.

Industry Reviews

I don't know of a finer model of this kind of empowering leadership than Captain Marquet. And in the pages that follow you will find a model for your pathway * Stephen R. Covey, author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People *
To say I'm a fan of David Marquet would be an understatement . . . I'm a fully fledged groupie. He is the kind of leader who comes around only once a generation. He is the kind of leader who doesn't just know how to lead, he knows how to build leaders. His ideas and lessons are invaluable to anyone who wants to build an organization that will outlive them * Simon Sinek, optimist and author of Start with Why *
