It’s not easy leading a team on a submarine; you’re under a lot of pressure.

Okay, we promise that’s the only sub pun you’ll read in this intro.

But it’s true; in your practice, or deep under water, you have to be at your best so your team can grow into leaders and you can step away without the stress of making every decision… every day. 

David Marquet is a former nuclear submarine Commander, and named one of the Top 100 Leadership Speakers by Inc. Magazine. David is the Author of the Amazon #1 Best Seller: Turn the Ship Around!, and The Turn the Ship Around Workbook. David’s latest book, Leadership is Language, is a Wall Street Journal Bestseller.
David knows that the best workplace is where everyone engages and contributes their full intellectual capacity, a place where people are healthier and happier – where everyone is a leader.
From eyeball accountability to letting go and trusting more; David knows that even with some of the most damaging nukes at his disposal it’s words that are a leader’s greatest weapon. 
Okay, time to take a deep dive (sorry that’s the last one) into the timeless subject of leadership – which David will explain is a practice not a theory.
