Get your ship together! : how great leaders inspire ownership from the keel up by D. Michael Abrashoff( Book )

4 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in English and held by 329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Former U.S. Navy Commander Michael Abrashoff attracted worldwide media attentionfor his success in turning around a struggling ship, the USS Benfoldthe subject of his acclaimed bestseller, It's Your Ship. Since then, he's been a fixture on the business lecture circuit, spreading an empowering message that any organization can be turned around with compassionate but firm leadership. He is now nearly as popular a speaker as Rudy Giuliani, Jack Welch, or Jim Collins. Abrashoff never claimed to have all the answers. He also knew that there were plenty of other creative leaders in the navy, army, air force, marine corps, and even the coast guard who could teach businesspeople how to motivate, inspire, and get great results under pressure. So he asked around, found some fascinating people in every branch of the U.S. military and the business world, and interviewed them about leadership and teambuilding. The result is Get Your Ship Togethera book that will be just as valuable as It's Your Ship. Make a contract with your people and honor it, develop your subordinates better so you can buy back a little quality of life, conduct the battle on your terms, not those of your adversary
It's your ship : [management techniques from the best damn ship in the navy] by D. Michael Abrashoff( Recording )

6 editions published between 2006 and 2012 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Naval captain D. Michael Abrashoff reveals the management principles that shaped his ship, the U.S.S. Benfold, into a model of leadership as progressive as any celebrated in the business world.The most important thing a captain can do is to see the ship from the eyes of the crew. This belief has successfully guided D. Michael Abrashoff, the captain of one of the U.S. Navys most modern and lethal warships. Abrashoff has revolutionized how to handle such challenging problems as excessive costs, low morale, sexual harassment, and constant turn-over. Business managers will benefit from Abrashoffs guiding belief that focus should be on empowering your people rather than on chain of command. By shifting organizing principles from obedience to performance, managers will be rewarded with remarkable productivity. As Abrashoff explains, the more people enjoy the process, the better the results. Good leaders listen to the people under their commandand use their ideas to improve operating procedures
