"Stephen Covey inspired millions with his writings but where did Dr. Covey get his inspiration? This is the story of one such source, one that Dr. Covey himself called the most empowered organization he had ever seen - and a nuclear powered submarine no less. From the vantage point of the commander of the USS Santa Fe, read how the crew completely turned the ship around, going from worst to first by questioning many of our basic leadership assumptions and shifting from take-control authority to give-control empowerment. Share the author's insights as the crew gains unprecedented decision making authority, the risks of doing so, and the reward of an exponentially more effective and more resilient organization. Learn how to achieve astounding results by applying the author's practical steps, such as - Release proactivity and initiative with ''I intend to...'' - Build teamwork and minimize errors with ''deliberate action'' - Enhance responsibility and ownership by eliminating top-down monitoring - Improving morale by focusing on excellence rather than errors" -- Provided by publisher.… (mais)

Much better than I expected it to be on the basis of his talks, I might even mange to use some of this, which is pretty much a first for a management book! ( )

I'd heard about this book a few times from others in my field (education design), and finally got the time to track it down and read it. The subject matter was of high interest - it brings together three of my passions: leadership, training, and submarines.

David Marquet (USN, retired) tells the story of his rise to the rank of captain in the US Navy submarine fleet. From his early days of leadership the heavily ensconced leader-follower model troubles him and he experiments with other approaches. Some of these show promise, some fail dismally. But it's when he takes command of USS Santa Fe that he finds his stride. Through trial, error, experimentation, and determination he develops a new way of leading a submarine - the leader-leader model. This is about empowering all members of an organisation to take (appropriate) leadership and conduct themselves with personal accountability and responsibility. He and his team of department chiefs identified bottlenecks, waste, morale-drains, and irrelevant bureaucracy. They develop new ways of working and relating and their practices eventually spread through all the officers and crew.

Did he succeed? Well, if taking the worst-performing sub in the fleet (Santa Fe) and turning it into a consistently high-performing unit with incredible accomplishment statistics is anything to go by - then, yes! And their record of training and advancement is quite something. It's fantastic how he turns the organisation into a learning environment.

Frankly, I would have given his approach a thumbs-up but with a low probability of success - given centuries old maritime leadership traditions and tight USN hierarchies. But hats off to the author... he succeeded where many would not dare to tread.

This is a story of real leadership, and vision, and dogged determination. It's also about passion and giving a damn about people.

The book is a blend of story-telling and leadership advice. Personally I enjoyed the story-telling parts more (probably due to my submarine bias), but for someone looking to revitalise their team or organisation, the leadership advice, questions and exercises would be of interest.

Overall, a worthwhile read. And I learned some things!

Recommended (my rating is more like 4-1/2) ( )

This book could have been great, but ended up being merely good. Three things drag it down:
1) the connection (or lack thereof) between the many chapters,
2) almost all of the chapters are way too brief, leaving me feeling like I won't be able to apply these techniques myself, and
3) no coverage of what to do when you find yourself off the beaten path.

The chapters are presented in (mostly) chronological order but have few connections to each other. I'd expect from a chronological presentation that there'd be a logical progression between chapters, with each building on the previous. Not so here, and the times that the captain does jump around in time help further obscure the connection between content. It gives the book more of a 'collection of blog-posts' feel, rather than that of a single cohesive work.
Additionally, each of these chapters has a start date for when the situation started, but no detail on how long it took for the change to take. To my mind, this is important information for how to judge which changes to roll out first (because surely you can't roll out the whole book's worth of changes all at once, right? The author never addresses this problem).

Most of these chapters are also not very long - some are only a page or two. Rolling out these changes in an environment where the existing practices are entrenched (which is not just a thing in the Navy) is a _hard problem_ and is given almost no attention. What is also given no attention is the fact that most people aren't the captain of the ship they're on (metaphorically speaking). I know that's not the situation that the author found themselves in, so it's hard to hold it against him. Even so, it'd be nice to have detail on how you could apply some of this without being the highest level of authority (yes, I know he was only a captain and had his own bosses, but being out to sea for six months at a time provides an awful lot of autonomy).

Some of the chapters go into problems he ran into during application - in one memorable situation, a member of the crew goes AWOL, and the captain handles it really well. But many of the chapters don't go into how to generally apply these techniques when the plan doesn't go as intended. This is especially unfortunate in a book whose thesis asserts that the traditional way of doing things is broken and _already_ not working as intended! If I try to apply any of this, I'm going to have to adapt it to my own, differently-broken situation, and I really don't feel like I've been enabled to do that effectively here.

Don't get me wrong - you should probably still read the book. There are a lot of good, high-level things to keep in mind presented in it. Just don't expect to have deep guidance on how to apply the lessons the author wants you to take away.

Great book on leadership and everyone plays at the top of their game. ( )
  BizCoach | Jul 31, 2020 |
If you are or will be in a leadership position, you need to read this. And read it again. And again. The best empowerment and leadership book I've read to date (and I've read quite a lot on leadership). That it is conceived and written by a Navy Captain only makes it better.

Each point is succinct (apparently misunderstood by some as condescending...odd bit of cluelessness I can't fathom), exceptionally illustrated and with the candid background of what generated it. Many brilliant insights. I plan to adapt much of this. Always learning.

The drivel of David Emerald's TED "power" "empowerment" is pre-school compared to this. Avoid it. ( )
