It’s Your Ship

Just finished It’s Your Ship, and can’t recommend it highly enough! I haven’t read a book in a while that spoke to what I might call a “personal philosophy”, but this is about as close as it gets. Love the focus on feedback, fun, and treating people like responsible adults.

Leadership principles outline in the book:

  • Take command
  • Learn real leadership
  • Lead by example
  • Listen aggressively
  • Communicate purpose and meaning
  • Create a climate of trust
  • Look for results, not salutes
  • Take calculated risks
  • Go beyond standard procedure
  • Build up your people
  • Generate unity
  • Improve your people’s quality of life
