A companion workbook filled with practical advice, tools and lessons based on the acclaimed leadership book, Turn The Ship Around! by David Marquet.

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 his crew to assume responsibility for every individual action. Santa Fe rapidly improved its dismal performance record, and started winning awards as the best ship in its class.

Now Marquet returns with a workbook so readers can apply his methods to their own organizations. With 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.
