Inno-Versity Success Story: David Marquet

Our Client’s Dilemma

Captain David Marquet served in the U.S. Navy as a submarine captain. He had already achieved great success overseeing the nuclear submarine USS Santa Fe, using a unique leadership approach in which he allowed his crew to take on their own leadership roles. He took these principles and wrote a best-selling book, Turn This Ship Around!  Published in 2012, it advises leaders of all types of organizations how to lead in a way that allows those around them to contribute their full intellectual capacity every day.

Despite this success, David envisioned a career where he could command a stage. He hoped to speak to large groups of management teams on improving leadership and building an empowering work environment. But he needed to expand his audience and attracting one proved to be a challenge.
