L David Marquet Biography & Facts

L. David Marquet ( mar-KAY) is a retired United States Navy captain and the bestselling author of Turn the Ship Around and Leadership is Language. He graduated from the US Naval Academy in 1981. He was the engineer officer aboard the USS Will Rogers (SSBN-659), a nuclear powered ballistic missile submarine. In 1999, Maquet was selected to captain the USS Olympia (SSN-717), a nuclear powered attack submarine, but unexpectedly he was diverted to take command of the USS Santa Fe, when its captain quit. After being assigned to command the USS Santa Fe, then ranked last in retention and operational standing, he realized the traditional leadership approach of “take control, give orders,” wouldn’t work. He “turned his ship around” by treating the crew as leaders, not followers, and giving control, not taking control. This approach took the Santa Fe from “worst to first,” achieving the highest retention and operational standings in the navy. After Captain Marquet’s departure from the ship, the Santa Fe continued to win awards and promoted a disproportionate number of officers and enlisted men to positions of increased responsibility, including ten subsequent submarine captains.The submarine has continued to win awards. Soon after he became commander of the Submarine Squadron 3 until Sept. 23, 2005. Since his retirement in 2009, he has worked as a leadership expert and speaks to audiences globally about creating workplaces where people are healthier and happier because they have more control over their work. He taught previously at the Columbia University School of Professional Studies. Bibliography Awards and decorations References External links Website. Discover the L David Marquet popular books.
