5.0 out of 5 stars WANT TO BE A LEADER, NOT JUST A MANAGER? THEN PLEASE READ THIS., 27 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Turn the Ship Around!: A True Story of Building Leaders by Breaking the Rules (Hardcover)
First, I have to admit a passion for the Sea, the Navy and Submarines.

But don't let that put you off reading this outstanding book.

My "day job" now is business and executive coach and from that perspective and at age 62 I'd heartily say that if you REALLY want to be a Leader (as differentiated from a mere manager), you'll look far and wide before you find a book that so succinctly tells you how - no lofty, vague platitudes by someone who never stood up there and actually did it.

Captain Marquet gives you the clear recipe here.

Have a marker pen at the ready and be prepared perhaps for some surprises. First, the author candidly admits his own mistakes (silence is not golden it turns out).

And, when you've finished reading it - it's an easy and fast read, by the way - you'll no doubt read it again.

But then it's all down to you to muster the moral courage to put it into practice, and THAT indeed may be the hardest part...
