David Marquet imagines a ​world where everyone engages and contributes their full intellectual capacity, a place where people are healthier and happier because they have more control over their work–a place where everyone is a leader.

David is the bestselling author of Turn the Ship Around!, the Turn the Ship Around Workbook, and the #1 new release Leadership is Language. Fortune magazine called Turn the Ship Around! the “best how-to manual anywhere for managers on delegating, training, and driving flawless execution.”

Leadership Nudge® – Quality Questions

Make it easy for your team to respond and to give information. Ask questions that are easy to answer.

Don’t ask – “Will we launch on time?”

Instead, ask “How likely is it that we will launch on time?”

David gives us a great example of how that might work from inside a submarine.
