FREE Workshop

"Turn the Ship Around: A True story of Turning Followers into Leaders"

8:00-9:30 am on Wednesday, August 3, 2016
Defiance Chamber of Commerce Office

"Turn the Ship Around" is the true story of how David Marquet turned the submarine Santa Fe from worst to first in the fleet by challenging the U.S. Navy's traditional leader-follower approach.

This workshop will share key lessons from the book, including how to create a leadership model of leader-leader rather than traditional model of leader-follower. The core of this model is giving employees control over what they work on and how they work. The two other enabling pillars are competence and clarity.
