Creating a Team of Leaders with David Marquet

Inside LaunchStreet David Marquet business podcast innovation podcast

Empower your team to lead through intent-based leadership.

How do you create a high-performing team where people are leaning into you as the leader, rather than you leaning into them? As a leader, what can you do to ensure you are creating an environment where your team thrives? There’s no better person to tap for insights than a former commander of a nuclear submarine, David Marquet.

 

Apart from serving as a nuclear submarine commander, David is a student of leadership and organizational design, author of the Amazon #1 bestseller, Turn the Ship Around! and one of Inc. Magazine’s Top 100 Leadership Speakers for 2018. Today, he gives keynote speeches on the topics of leadership, how leaders can create workplaces where everyone engages and contributes their full intellectual capacity, and nurturing teams where everyone is a leader.

 

As leaders, we often blame our people for not speaking up, but the problem is we have created environments where speaking up is unhealthy, unwanted, unwarranted, and unappreciated. David highlights some other deadly ingredients that make organizations ineffective and how to overcome them. We also dive into the shift of the role of leader from 'obey the clock' to 'control the clock,' from coerce to commit, from conform to connect. David shares his personal experience of what it was like to admit that he as a leader didn’t know all the answers and how that contributed to the change in the atmosphere of the team and some strategies for leaders to give up control and empower your team to lead. Find out how intent-based leadership makes the doers also be the deciders, and what this can do for your organization.
