Managers who focus on the people below them miss the chance to manage up the chain of command. If they can manage their bosses, they can free themselves up to do the best job they can. You can do the same. That’s the practical and practiced message in this brief eBook from D. Michael Abrashoff, once the captain of the USS Benfold, who told his story in the bestselling book, It’s Your Ship.

About the Author

At the age of 36, D. Michael Abrashoff became the much admired skipper 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 It’s Your Ship. Now a consultant to large corporations and 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.
