Minter Dialogue with David Marquet

David Marquet, speaker and author of the best-selling Turn the Ship Around! A True Story of Turning Followers Into Leaders as well Leadership is Language. A graduate of the Annapolis Naval Academy, he became a celebrated commander of a nuclear-powered submarine, the USS Santa Fe, for a remarkable turnaround performance. He left the Navy in 2009 and has developed a system called Intent-Based Leadership which could be summarized as “give control, create leaders.” In this conversation, we’ll hear about how to let go, galvanise your team, deal with conflicts and develop a practical purpose.
