A 1981 U.S. Naval Academy graduate, David Marquet served in the U.S.
submarine force for 28 years. David Marquet single-handedly “turned his
ship around” when he became Captain of the USS Santa Fe, a nuclear
powered submarine which had a crew ranked dead last in retention and
operational standings. By treating his crew as leaders, not followers,
Marquet’s ship went from “worst to first.”

The Santa Fe continued to win awards after his departure and promoted a
disproportionate number of officers and enlisted men to positions of
increased responsibility, including 10 subsequent submarine captains. After
riding USS Santa Fe, Stephen R. Covey said it was the most empowering
organization he’d ever seen and wrote about Captain Marquet’s leadership
practices in his book, The 8th Habit.

Marquet is the author of Turn the Ship Around! How to Create Leadership
at Every Level. Fortune magazine called it the “best how-to manual
anywhere for managers on delegating, training, and driving flawless
execution.”

Captain Marquet retired from the Navy in 2009, and speaks to businesses
and groups who want to create empowering work environments that
release the passion, initiative, and intellect of each person. His bold and
highly effective Intent Based Leadership approach can be summarized as
“give control, create leaders.” By creating this environment you can help
others become the leaders they were meant to be. In doing so, you be
become the leader you were meant to be.

He is a life member of the Council on Foreign Relations.
