"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.… (más)

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. ( )

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. ( )

Marquet offers a message of empowerment to create a model of leader-leader instead of leader-follower. He constructed his system while executing a turn-around of the Navy's lowest performing submarine. The key elements of his approach are organized around control, competence and clarity. Backed by plenty of real-world scenarios relevant to business as much as military, I found this book valuable and inspiring. ( )

A very inspirational and practicable leadership guide. This was the one, that made me really want to follow.

I've read a couple books on the leadership issue before. They're written by well-known authors and probably they're really good. They talk about right principles and give practices to inculcate them all at once. But I haven't been really able to do that. Because guiding a group of co-workers (in my case - engineers) purports a bit other relations. I can assume, that quite a small percentage of leadership guide readers actually run a business with tens of employees, so our experience is comparable. I have strong feeling that those books increase a hierarchy stairs footstep between you and followers, that wasn't appropriate for me. This one is different. It's more about exemplifying and cooperation, no matted of rank difference. It doesn't exploit or intentionally generate that difference. And it offers you a recipe of step by step evolution of your ideas. This book matches with my own vision of management and has significantly modified my principles, so it has became my personal guide for now, that I really follow.

What is good for a book, is that it's built more like a memoir, than a textbook. So, it gives you a person to take after, that becomes it's major benefit. The other one is that the story lets you to go through author's experience while reading.
At the same time, it is well-structured so you'll never get lost while looking for some issue and gives you specific recommendations, unlike memoirs do.

I've started with having read a paper book, translated to Russian. And now I've purchased an audiobook, narrated by the author. It sounds great and absolutely clear even for a foreign listener. ( )
