L. David Marquet is a retired Naval officer and was the captain of the USS Santa Fe, a nuclear submarine. As captain he turned what was considered the worst performing crew into the highest performing team. He did this by dropping the command and control model for what he calls intent-based leadership. In this episode we delve into his experience as a nuclear submarine captain, why you should stop giving orders and start sharing intent, how to change your language so that you develop leaders, not followers, and why you probably aren’t thinking big enough.


He is also the author of the best selling books Turn the Ship Around and Language is Leadership.
