Turn the Ship Around!: How to Create Leadership at Every Level
From the vantage point of the commander of the USS Santa Fe, read how the crew completely turned the ship around, going from worst to first by questioning many of our basic leadership assumptions and shifting from take-control authority to give-control empowerment.
Share the author's insights as the crew gains unprecedented decision making authority, the risks of doing so, and the reward of an exponentially more effective and more resilient organization.
Learn how to achieve astounding results by applying the author's practical steps, such as
- Release proactivity and initiative with 'I intend to...'
- Build teamwork and minimize errors with "deliberate action"
- Enhance responsibility and ownership by eliminating top-down monitoring
- Improving morale by focusing on excellence rather than errors.
See what it's really like to operate a nuclear submarine -- from navigation to missile launching -- and learn the mechanisms used to propel Santa Fe not only to the top but to achieve a lasting transformation, one that resulted in the ship's continued operational excellence and the highly disproportionate promotion rate among Santa Fe's crew long after Marquet had left command.

Excellent leadership guide! Learn how to operate as a team, empower your people to be the best that they want and can be. Especially liked the idea of "When checking out with the XO, the department heads were now telling him what they were doing, hadn’t done, and needed help with. It was a bottom-up dialogue."
