Turn the Ship Around! By L. David Marquet

At an industry event in Phoenix, AZ, Mr. Marquet was a featured speaker, sharing his first-hand experience on the USS Santa Fe, a nuclear submarine. He finds himself taking over a crew that had trouble getting underway on time and the worst retention record in the submarine force. The challenge was to use the same people and support team while changing the way they interacted and behaved, all with the goal of increasing the combat effectiveness.

During this assignment, David observed the men, asked questions, listened, and put together steps towards rebuilding the team, ultimately earning glowing accolades in the Navy, and a visit by Stephen Covey!
