Event description
How to Academy presents...Leadership is Language - How to Empower Your Team Through Better Communication with L. David Marquet

About this Event

'David Marquet is the kind of leader who comes around only once in a generation... His ideas and lessons are invaluable' – Simon Sinek

Few of us realize that our language in the workplace inhibits creative problem-solving and escalates uncertainty and stress. In both high-pressure situations and everyday scenarios, in each meeting and email, we have the opportunity to empower our colleagues by using the right words.

David Marquet is a man who understands first-hand the power of words to make change happen. As commander of the nuclear-powered, fast-attack submarine USS Santa Fe, he transformed the worst-performing submarine in the fleet to the best. Now he applies the same skills to businesses as an expert in leadership.

In this masterclass, Marquet will build on the ideas of his bestselling book Turn the Ship Around! to show managers and leaders the next step in their development: how to enable their team through communication.

Marquet will outline a set of principles and tools that help leaders inspire their people to take responsibility and address challenges without waiting to be told what to do, highlighting how small changes in language can lead to dramatic changes in a team's success and happiness.

Praise for L. David Marquet:

'I don't know of a finer model of this kind of empowering leadership than Captain Marquet. And in the pages that follow you will find a model for your pathway' - Stephen R. Covey, author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People

'To say I'm a fan of David Marquet would be an understatement... I'm a fully fledged groupie. He is the kind of leader who comes around only once a generation. He is the kind of leader who doesn't just know how to lead, he knows how to build leaders. His ideas and lessons are invaluable to anyone who wants to build an organization that will outlive them' - Simon Sinek, optimist and author of Start with Why

L. David Marquet, a top graduate of the US Naval Academy, commanded the nuclear-powered, fast-attack submarine USS Santa Fe from 1999 to 2001, transforming it from the worst-performing submarine in its fleet to the best. Since retiring from the navy, Marquet has worked with businesses nationwide as a leadership consultant. He gives presentations around the world about his acclaimed first book, Turn the Ship Around: A True Story of Turning Leaders into Followers.
