"Leadership should mean giving control rather than taking control and creating leaders rather than forging followers."

We’ve all heard of the phrase “follow the leader,” but David Marquet thinks it’s time for something new – a model where there are no followers, because everybody is a leader.

Passionate and driven, Marquet joined the Navy and, after being selected captain of a submarine he knew inside and out, was reassigned to take command of an underperforming submarine when its captain quit. It was here, on the USS Santa Fe, that Marquet’s eyes were opened to the power of Intent-Based Leadership and how much of a difference it can make to give control, rather than taking it.

After giving an impossible order and observing his crew’s reactions, Marquet knew immediately that a major shift was in order. No more, “because you told me to” – each member of the submarine crew would now be their own leader, taking charge of everything from clerical tasks to crucial combat decisions. Instead of overwhelming the crew, this change in technique from the classic follower-leader to Intent-Based leadership caused engagement and morale to skyrocket. Now, crew members mattered – and they knew it!

Soon enough, the USS Sante Fe rose from “worst to first,” achieving the highest retention and operational standings in the Navy. Even after his retirement from the Navy in 2009, David Marquet had made his mark on the USS Santa Fe – to this day, it continues to win awards, promote more officers, and enlist more men to positions of increased responsibility than any other submarine – all thanks to Marquet’s leadership strategy.

Turn That Ship Around! Packs a powerful punch, outlining an effective technique that you yourself can implement in your workplace – no matter your business, position, or company size. The payoff? A team that is engaged and inspired every day, and an enthusiastic workplace where everyone takes responsibility for their actions.
