I don't know of a finer model of this kind of empowering leadership than Captain Marquet. (Stephen R. Covey). Turn the Ship Around is the gripping story of the USS Santa Fe - a nuclear submarine dogged by poor morale, poor performance, and the worst retention rate in the fleet - until David Marquet took command. Captain Marquet took the ship from worst to best in its class by challenging the US Navy's traditional leader-follower approach. Instead, he gave up as much control and decision-making as possible to his team, creating a new framework he calls 'leader-leader'. Marquet shows how he struggled against his instincts to take control, and how the effort paid off far more dramatically than he ever imagined. No matter your business or position, you can apply Marquet's approach to create a workplace where everyone takes responsibility for their actions, people are healthier and happier and everyone is a leader.
