Now revised and expanded - the companion workbook to former submarine captain David Marquet's acclaimed leadership book,Turn The Ship Around!

In Turn the Ship Around! former U.S. Navy Captain David Marquet introduced a bold new approach to leadership, based on his experiences turning around the troubled submarine USS Santa Fe. He gave up the traditional command-and-control model and instead inspired every member of his crew to embrace accountabliity. Santa Fe rapidly improved its dismal performance record and started winning awards as the best ship in its class.

In this workbook — now a revised and expanded second edition, with a new title — Marquet helps readers apply his methods to their own organizations. Featuring extensive questions and exercises on how to delegate and inspire, this workbook will help readers build a work community based on personal responsibility and trust. As Marquet writes:

Imagine a workplace where everone engages and contributes their full intellectual capacity, a place where people are happier and healthier because they have more control over their work — a place where everyone is a leader.... All of this is possible, but not with the current leadership paradigm.
