Let the doers be the deciders with David Marquet

Learn from L. David Marquet, a retired U.S. Navy Captain.  He served in the U.S. for 28 years and shared his leadership lessons in his first book Turn the ship around.  Stephen R. Covey said it was the most empowering organisation he’d ever seen and wrote about Captain Marquet’s leadership practices in his book, The 8th Habit.

In his latest book, Leadership is Language, David focuses on giving control to the doers, to allow them decide. David tells me,  it’s time to ditch the industrial age playbook of leadership. In Leadership is Language, you’ll learn how choosing your words can dramatically improve decision-making and execution on your team. Marquet outlines six plays for all leaders, anchored in how you use language:

  •  Control the clock, don’t obey the clock: Pre-plan decision points and give your people the tools they need to hit pause on a plan of action if they notice something wrong.
  •  Collaborate, don’t coerce: As the leader, you should be the last one to offer your opinion. Rather than locking your team into binary responses (“Is this a good plan?”), allow them to answer on a scale (“How confident are you about this plan?”)
  •  Commit, don’t comply: Rather than expect your team to comply with specific directions, explain your overall goals, and get their commitment to achieving it one piece at a time.
  •  Complete, not continue: If every day feels like a repetition of the last, you’re doing something wrong. Articulate concrete plans with a start and end date to align your team.
  •  Improve, don’t prove: Ask your people to improve on plans and processes, rather than prove that they can meet fixed goals or deadlines. You’ll face fewer cut corners and better long-term results.
  •  Connect, don’t conform: Flatten hierarchies in your organization and connect with your people to encourage them to contribute to decision-making.
