- Is your organization relying on the decision making of one person?
- What kind of leadership model dos your organization use?
- Do you need someone else to empower you?
Imagine being on a submarine with your colleagues, heading out to open waters, potentially being together in a cramped space for several months. If morale and performance amongst you and your fellow colleagues is low, you would probably be reluctant to go.
Our guest today had to deal with this, being assigned command of the nuclear submarine, USS Santa Fe, the ship everyone joked about during their Prospective Commanding Officer training.
However, he managed to transform the ship into the best performing vessel in the fleet, and shared the story in his book, Turn the Ship Around.
We are roasting marshmallows with David Marquet, a retired United States Navy captain and the bestselling author of Turn the Ship Around and Leadership is Language.
Imagine a work place where everyone engages and contributes their full intellectual capacity. A place where people are healthier and happier because they have more control over their work - a place where everyone is a leader.
