Captain L. David Marquet: Leadership is Language
Deals for our listeners:
At a turning point in his career as a US Naval Officer, Captain L. David Marquet was given command of the worst-performing submarine in the fleet, the USS Santa Fe.
During his command, Captain Marquet managed to turn the Santa Fe from the worst performer in the fleet to the best. Famous author Stephen Covey spent time on the Santa Fe and called it “the most empowering organization he’d ever seen.
Captain Marquet’s “secret” was that he was able to transform his crew from a group of followers to a group of leaders. In 2009, Captain Marquet retired from the Navy and began bringing his intent-based leadership method to the corporate world. He’s been able to help some of the largest companies in the world transform and grow.
His first book, Turn the Ship Around, was called the “best how-to manual anywhere for managers on delegating, training, and driving flawless execution” by Fortune Magazine. His latest book Leadership is Language uncovers the linguistic traps that imprison leaders and teams into outdated thinking that can turn costly and even deadly in many situations.
In this conversation you will learn:
- a new playbook for leadership
- why the language you use is important
- how to free yourself of the old playbook
- how to empower everyone on your team to become leaders
- wisdom on living your best life in the civilian world
