5.0 out of 5 stars Great book on leadership - so sayeth another sub commander, September 10, 2012
This review is from: Turn the Ship Around!: How to Create Leadership at Every Level (Hardcover)
Full disclosure - David Marquet and I are U.S. Naval Academy classmates. I didn't know David back then but interestingly enough we were both in command of improved 688 fast attack submarines at the same time, David on Santa Fe in the Pacific and me on USS Toledo (SSN-769) in the Atlantic. Also interestingly I actually used some of the techniques David describes in this book (for example, having your people come up with a plan and say "I intend to" rather than "Request permission to" or even worse when I arrived on board Toledo, "What do you want to do about x, y, or z?") My problem was that I didn't have a comprehensive SYSTEM like David lays out here. As a result my use of techniques such as David describes was haphazard and ad hoc. I am convinced that if I had employed the complete system David describes I would have been much more successful, AND YOU CAN BE TOO. If you lead anyone in any line of work you owe it to yourself to read this book, employ its strategies and then watch your business (or submarine) thrive!! And then you'll want to pass this book around and encourage other people to read it too!
