Creating Leaders at Every Level

Join UKG and David Marquet for an interactive session on leadership development

Thursday, June 2, 2022
1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. ET



Imagine a workplace where everyone is engaged and contributes their full intellectual capacity. A place where people are healthier and happier because they have more control over their work — a place where everyone is a leader.

David Marquet, former nuclear submarine commander and author of the Amazon #1 best seller Turn the Ship Around!, believes that leadership is not just for the select few. There are leaders at every level.

In this webinar, he’ll review the origins and principles of his Intent-Based Leadership® model, which draws on the techniques he developed on the nuclear-powered submarine USS Santa Fe.

He’ll share his unique perspective influencing up and down the chain of command and reveal how this submarine went from the worst to the best, achieving the highest retention and operational standings in the U.S. Navy.

This interactive webinar requires your participation. David will take you inside a U.S. Navy fast-attack submarine using photographs and stories to describe the challenges, frustrations, and successes the team experienced.

He’ll cover the principles of this leadership movement by contrasting bosses and leaders, explaining how you can:

  • Give control and create leaders
  • Create an environment that releases greatness
  • Get people to think instead of just do
  • Use language that inspires collaboration

Build an organization where people are at their best. Complete the form to register today!

About David Marquet

David Marquet

Student of leadership and organizational design, former nuclear submarine Commander, and named one of the Top 100 Leadership Speakers by Inc. Magazine. David is the author of the Amazon #1 Best Seller: Turn the Ship Around! and The Turn the Ship Around Workbook. David's latest book, Leadership is Language, was released February 4th, 2020, by Penguin Random House.

A 1981 U.S. Naval Academy graduate, Captain Marquet served in the U.S. submarine force for 28 years. After being assigned to command the nuclear-powered submarine 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 the 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, the Santa Fe continued to win awards and promoted a disproportionate number of officers and enlisted men to leadership positions, including ten subsequent submarine captains. Stephen R. Covey said it was the most empowering organization he'd ever seen and wrote about Captain Marquet' s leadership practices in his book, The 8th Habit.

Captain Marquet is the author of Turn the Ship Around! A True Story of Turning Followers Into Leaders. Fortune magazine named it the #1 must-read business book of the year, and USA Today listed it as one of the top 12 business books of all time. He is also the author of The Turn the Ship Around Workbook, which is a companion workbook for implementing Intent-Based Leadership.

David's book, Leadership is Language, is a re-engineering of the language we use at work and a new playbook for leaders. "It's time to ditch the Industrial Age playbook of leadership." This book provides insights on how choosing your words can dramatically improve decision-making and execution skills for teams.

Captain Marquet retired from the Navy in 2009, and now speaks to audiences around the globe who want to create empowering work environments that release the passion, initiative, and intellect of each person. This bold and highly effective framework is summarized as "give control, create leaders."

He is a life member of the Council on Foreign Relations, and in 2015 was named to the American Management Association's "Leaders to Watch" list.
