Anna Carroll, MSSW, firmly believes in the power of feedback within teams and organizations. As an executive coach and organizational consultant, Carroll specializes in workplace feedback, leadership development and facilitation of groups, and is well known for her ability to make connections between people and business results in a concise and compelling way.

Her newest book, The Feedback Imperative: How to Give Everyday Feedback to Speed Up Your Team’s Success (River Grove Books, July 2014), explains how to do just that. Carroll emphasizes the value of workplace feedback and explains how to equip leaders to be great feedback-givers.

In The Feedback Imperative, Carroll applies her extensive research and expertise in business consulting and psychology to illustrate how brain science, generational trends, our information economy, limiting beliefs and organizational culture collide in the new workplace, therefore, creating a huge gap between the supply and demand of professional feedback. Ultimately, Carroll aims to give readers the proper tools to execute a feedback turnaround that will give employees information they need to build a culture in which employee-to-leader and peer-to-peer feedback are welcome and encouraged.

As a veteran in the business consulting landscape, Carroll’s experience working with global corporations like eBay, GE, Singapore Airlines, Applied Materials, University of Texas, Zimmer and many more allows her to easily identify future trends in the workplace.

Carroll completed her undergraduate work at Sarah Lawrence College and Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and later received a master of science degree in social work form the University of Texas at Austin. She completed her professional coach training form the Coaches Training Institute and is certified as a CTI Certified Professional Co-Active Coach.

David Marquet


David Marquet Expert on Leadership and Innovation | Author of Turn the Ship Around, Retired US Navy Captain David Marquet imagines a work place where everyone engages 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.

A 1981 U.S. Naval Academy graduate, David Marquet served in the U.S. submarine force for 28 years. David Marquet single-handedly “turned his ship around” when he became Captain of the USS Santa Fe, a nuclear powered submarine which had a crew ranked dead last in retention and operational standings. By treating his crew as leaders, not followers, Marquet’s ship went from “worst to first.”

The Santa Fe continued to win awards after his departure and promoted a disproportionate number of officers and enlisted men to positions of increased responsibility, including 10 subsequent submarine captains. After riding USS Santa Fe, 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.

Marquet is the author of Turn the Ship Around! How to Create Leadership at Every Level. Fortune magazine called it the “best how-to manual anywhere for managers on delegating, training, and driving flawless execution.”   Captain Marquet retired from the Navy in 2009, and speaks to businesses and groups who want to create empowering work environments that release the passion, initiative, and intellect of each person. His bold and highly effective leadership approach can be summarized as “give control, create leaders.” Doing so creates environments where we coax our inner superhero to action.

Suddenly, we were hearing the message and realized we were hearing it from the only person we would ever believe — ourselves.”
