Overview
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.

Meet the Author David Marquet is the author of the award-winning book Turn the Ship Around! In 2012 Fortune Magazine called it the best how-to manual anywhere for managers on delegating, training, and driving flawless execution. He teaches graduate level leadership at Columbia University.

A 1981 U.S. Naval Academy graduate, David Marquet served in the U.S. submarine force for 28 years. He commanded the nuclear-powered fast-attack submarine USS Santa Fe. Captain Marquet completely turned around Santa Fe, where the crew went from being worst to first. Santa Fe continued to win awards after his departure and promoted a disproportionate number of officers and enlisted men to positions of increased responsibility, including 10 subsequent submarine captains. After riding USS Santa Fe, Stephen R. Covey said it was the most empowering organization he'd ever seen and wrote about Captain Marquet's leadership practices in his book, The 8th Habit.

Captain Marquet retired from the Navy in 2009, and is the Captain, Human Capital Engineering at Next Jump, Inc., a leading e-commerce company in New York. He speaks to businesses and groups who want to create empowering work environments that release the passion, initiative, and intellect of each person. This bold and highly effective leadership approach can be summarized as give control, create leaders. He is a life member of the Council on Foreign Relations and lives in Manhattan with his wife, Jane.
