Author, Turn the Ship Around!*
Former nuclear submarine commander David Marquet teaches us how to of turn followers into leaders.
Good leaders give good orders, but great leaders don’t give any orders because they’ve built a team that doesn’t need to be told what to do.
Too many times leaders think the problem is “out there,” but the real problem is in their own head.
You only need to do one thing to engage employees: give them decision-making authority.
By treating people like leaders, you build more leaders.
The concept is act your way into new thinking, not think your way into new actions.
