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)

If the answer is 'yes' then this book should perk you up and give you some ideas to change things for the better.
It's a clear and simple read but also grounded in painful honesty about the times when plot-loss occurred and mistakes were made.
The message is so simple.
With a clear mission & strategy in place so everyone in a company knows what the goals are, give your team autonomy and not only will they feel pride in the work they do & enjoy their work, but they will achieve so much more.
If David can achieve ceding control on a nuclear submarine, then there is no reason why we can't all lead our companies in the same way.
Update - since applying the learning in my teams We've built a team that contributes, not follows, solved & delivered on long term challenges and are developing managers/ future managers. This book and it's practices have transformed me from a manager to the leader I always aspired to in six months.
That being said, I found myself questioning the transferrability of some of the experiences to a nonmilitary environment (see for example the experience in relaxing rules about formalised communication in submarines).
So, I would recommend it but in would also recommend to not stop your leadership training to this book.
