Turn the Ship Around!

L. David Marquet


Probably the most useful leadership book you’ll ever read.

The stakes on a nuclear submarine cannot be higher, and a low-performing team is not an option. How Marquet made his team perform is the stuff of legend.

He pushed responsibility as close to the teams as possible.

He continually asked “what do you intend to do?”

I’m usually not a fan of either sports or military metaphors, but there’s so much good stuff here.
