David Marquet, an experienced Navy officer, was used to giving orders. As newly appointed captain of the USS Santa Fe, a nuclear-powered submarine, he was responsible for more than a hundred sailors, deep in the sea. In this high-stress environment, where there is no margin for error, it was crucial his men did their job and did it well. But the ship was dogged by poor morale, poor performance, and the worst retention in the fleet.
This Inno-Versity Inno-Mation was adapted from Captain David Marquet’s talk on Greatness, and shows how to: Turn the Ship Around!
“Leadership should mean giving control rather than taking control and creating leaders rather than forging followers.”
