About the author (2010)

At the age of 36, D. Michael Abrashoff became the much admired skipper of USS Benfold, a troubled ship that, in a short 18 months, he and his crew transformed into the best guided-missile destroyer in the U.S. Navy. Publications from Fast Company to the Harvard Business Review heralded their achievement. Abrashoff himself told their story in a The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal bestselling book, It’s Your Ship. Now a consultant to large corporations and popular speaker on leadership topics, he is the founding partner of Grassroots Leadership Solutions. Abrashoff is also the author of It’s Our Ship and Get Your Ship.
