Retired U.S. Navy Captain David Marquet knows a thing or two about leadership – to say the least. In his bestselling, must-have leadership book, Marquet tells the story of how he transformed one of the lowest ranked, most unmotivated U.S. submarine crew into the best in the fleet.
Did he do it by taking control and doing everything himself? He did the exact opposite – he gave his crew on the Santa Fe more control. When Marquet gave them an impossible task and they did it blindly and without questioning, Marquet wanted to know why. What he learned was that his crew had a follower mentality because that’s how they had been trained and conditioned. Though he had to overcome his own thought processes behind leadership, Marquet realized he had to hand over some of his control to the crew if he ever wanted them to grow and succeed. Marquet gave them control over the small day-to-day decisions and major tactical decisions, only to learn that the men became more accountable, responsible and present.
You don’t have to be a member of the U.S. Navy to understand the principles in this book. People in all different leadership positions and levels can learn what it means to be apart of an effective business. No longer is leadership about dictating and giving orders, instead it’s about allowing people to succeed and fail under your guidance.
This business title is perfect for large corporations as well as small business with only one or two managers. Regardless of your company’s size, this book has invaluable lessons and teachings on the core principles of leadership.
