David Marquet (MAR-KAY) was assigned to command the nuclear powered submarine USS Santa Fe, then ranked last in retention and operational standing. He “turned his ship around” by treating the crew as leaders, not followers, and giving control, not taking control. This revolutionary

approach not only took the Santa Fe from “worst to first” in the rankings, but also created more subsequent leaders than any other submarine. Stephen R. Covey called the Santa Fe “the most empowering organization [he’d] ever seen” and wrote about Captain Marquet’s leadership practices in his book, The 8th Habit . Captain Marquet is the author of Turn the Ship Around! A True Story of Turning Followers Into Leaders . Fortune magazine named it the #1 must-read business book of the year, and USA Today listed it as one of the top 12 business books of all time. David Marquet will deliver the powerful message that in highly effective organizations, leadership is not for the select few at the top; he will tell you how he and the crew of Santa Fe developed a way to create leaders at every level.


Following our keynote, will be three workshop sessions delivered by Andy Worshek,  a retired Navy Master Chief who served with Captain Marquet on the USS Sante Fe.  During these interactive workshops, attendees will collaboratively learn:

  • How to create an environment where people actively engage and think
  • How to implement the idea of leadership as giving control – not taking control
  • How to talk with your teams in an empowering way so that you create leaders at every level in the organization
  • How to implement the idea of leadership as creating more leaders – not more followers
