Michael Abrashoff became the much admired kipper of USS Benfold, a troubled ship that, in a short 18 months, he and his crew transformed into the best guided-missile destroyer in the U.S. Navy. Publications from Fast Company to the Harvard Business Review heralded their achievement. Abrashoff himself told their story in a New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestselling book, It’s Your Ship. Now a consultant to large corporations and a popular speaker on leadership topics, he is the founding partner of
Grassroots Leadership Solutions. Abrashoff is also the author of It’s Our Ship and Get Your Ship Together.
