The legendary tale of top-down change for anyone trying to navigate today's uncertain business seas. NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLERWhen Captain Abrashoff took over as commander of USS Benfold, it was like a business that had all the latest technology but only some of the productivity. Knowing that responsibility for improving performance rested with him, he realized he had to improve his own leadership skills before he could improve his ship. Within months, he created a crew of confident and inspired problem-solvers eager to take the initiative and responsibility for their actions. The slogan on board became "It's your ship," and Benfold was soon recognized far and wide as a model of naval efficiency. How did Abrashoff do it? Against the backdrop of today's United States Navy, Abrashoff shares his secrets of successful management including: See the ship through the eyes of the crew: By soliciting a sailor's suggestions, Abrashoff drastically reduced tedious chores that provided little additional value. Communicate, communicate, communicate: The more Abrashoff communicated the plan, the better the crew's performance. His crew eventually started calling him "Megaphone Mike," since they heard from him so often. Create discipline by focusing on purpose: Discipline skyrocketed when Abrashoff's crew believed that what they were doing was important. Listen aggressively: After learning that many sailors wanted to use the GI Bill, Abrashoff brought a test official aboard the ship-and held the SATs forty miles off the Iraqi coast. From achieving amazing cost savings to winning the highest gunnery score in the Pacific Fleet, Captain Abrashoff's extraordinary campaign sent shock waves through the U.S. Navy. It can help you change the course of your ship, no matter where your business battles are fought.

Fantastic, easy, fun book on leadership with great stories and insights that are easy to relate to the corporate world. I found this book useful on many more levels than I had originally anticipated, including leadership, management, coaching, and even parenting. First and foremost, it is an excellent book on leadership and does a great job of illustrating the various styles that can be employed in various situations. Abrashoff talks openly about many facets of the inner workings and command structure of the Navy, the various styles of command, and provides excellent insights about how he was able to lead in a way that could almost have been perceived as subordinate or disrespectful. He demonstrates how having clear goals and communicating those goals can aid in decision making, empowerment, peer relationships, and even help to understand and anticipate the needs of your superiors and customers.

The biggest thing that I got from this book (and I fully intend to reread it and take notes the second time through) was how to be effective when procedures, culture, and bureaucracy all seem to be fighting against you. Not everyone may appreciate Captain Abrashoff's style, but there is no doubt the rapid and impressive results he achieved testify to many of the truths he adopted and employed. As a middle manager at a growing company, this book has energized and inspired me in many ways, and has also confirmed for me many of the things that I have been doing or have wanted to do. I have also been awakened to the importance and the challenge of managing up, something that I have not wanted to spend much if any time doing in the past.

I'm prior military, so naturally I was drawn to this book. When two of my most respected supervisors and one of my peers ranted and raved about this book, I knew it was something special. I read it in probably three days and I just couldn't put it down once I started. It almost brought me to tears a few times because I've had some pretty horrible leaders during my time in the military, and this was the absolute polar opposite of that. I was so happy for the crew and the author's leadership. I would easily re-enlist if I knew I was going to be serving under a leader like the author was. If you supervise anyone, you MUST read this book. If you hope to supervise someday, you MUST read this book. Both of those respected leaders I just talked about said they both base their leadership off this book and I had NO idea in the 2 years I have known them so far, but it all makes so much sense now.

Great book, I only bought it because an authority figure who fancies himself a tyrant according to everyone that works for him has this displayed prominently in his office (as if to warn us all that he's in charge, it's "his" ship). But after reading I realized it's more than that, actually it's better than that, it's about how to run a ship/office/business/school whatever, in an efficient manner, and it's not HIS ship, its everyone's ship. Where Abrashoff shares in the crew's failures and successes equally, this other authority figure takes no ownership of failures and takes almost all the credit for any successes that his subordinates achieve, and never rewards the subordinates for having achieved them.

Yea, I'm pretty sure the guy I'm talking about didn't read the book.

This is my second review - I'm buying more copies to have on hand. There are many leadership styles, and many of them can be successful. This book is NOT for you if these traits are typical of you as a leader: you have to be right all the time; your personal successes must be recognized and appreciated; all important decisions must be made by you; your organization could never run without you.

If, however, you find fulfillment from taking an active role in helping others achieve great success, if you find reward in your company being very successful without your name being billed as the sole reason for it's success, if you genuinely love your employees and want to see them grow into everything they are capable of, then you will find this book invaluable. It will help you create a strong and loyal culture with great energized and enthused team members. Imagine unleashing the passion and creativity in all of your employees and seeing what they can accomplish. That is what this book is about.

This is an EXCELLENT book on leadership and living with others who have different backgrounds and experiences from you. We're not all cut of the same cloth, but we're all human with needs and bring different experiences and views to the job. Abrashoff made an effort to recognize every person's value and seeks ways as a leader to utilize those individual characteristics for the goals of the organization. Clearly the military is not civilian life, but there are far more things in common than differences. Having served 4 years in the Navy (1971-1975), including 1 year, 5 months and 13 days (but who was counting) on an aircraft carrier, the USS Ranger, CV-61, I was enthralled by the Benfold's emphasis on individual search for excellence and teamwork. There's nothing ironic of the aphorism "a rising tide lifts all boats".

Abrashoff writes with an interesting combination of pride and modesty. There's no limit in to how far you can go if you do things to improve your company without caring about who gets the credit. Give opportunities to succeed to others below you, recognize the individual's characteristics, talents, views and needs and seek ways to incorporate them into the organization to improve it for everyone!

Decades ago my teenage niece gave me a paperweight which I kept prominently displayed which read:
"You're not hopeless, we can use you as a bad example."
At first it comes across as a put down, but to me it was a tongue-in-cheek reminder that everyone has value and can contribute to the group's success.
