1/14/15 – David Marquet on “Turning the Ship Around” by Empowering Your Staff; Nicole Zafian on Education for Coaches to Improve their Business

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.

Maybe is a simple yet powerful philosophy that has transformed Allison’s life, and the life of her many clients (now that she has ditched her legal career and has become a successful business consultant and life coach). The message is this: In the face of uncertainty, Maybe opens your mind and heart. It creates a little space for hope. It allows you to take a deep breath, stay in the present, and forge your own path.
Today, Allison works as an author, life coach, business consultant and blogger. Allison Carmen is the author of The Gift of Maybe, a book offering hope and possibility in the face of uncertainty.  She works with a vast array of people, from entrepreneurs and owners of multi-million dollar companies to artists, attorneys and parents.  Due to her popular blog, and online presence, Allison has tens of thousands of international followers all who are embracing the mindset of Maybe to deal with the fast-paced, changing economic and political landscape all over the world. Allison also writes a blog for the Huffington Post and Psychology Today. Allison has made several television appearances and is a guest lecturer at the Institute of Integrative Nutrition. Allison Carmen holds a B.A. in accounting, a J.D. of Law, and a Master’s of Law in taxation.

Susan Braverman
Susan Braverman

I became a coach because it allows me to bring all parts of myself to my work helping people improve their lives. As a social worker and marriage and family therapist, I learned to listen to the deeper messages about what people want for their lives. As an Employee Assistance consultant, I learned where to find the resources people need to make their lives work better. As a specialist in traumatic stress, I learned about the incredible strength, resourcefulness and resilience of people as they face life’s greatest challenges. As a business owner and entrepreneur, I learned about the challenges of running a business.  The work I did in my company brought me into every imaginable kind of organization and I learned to appreciate the differences in organizational culture.

As a wife and mother, I learned the value of humor and perspective in building a family and intimate relationships.  Now, as an executive and personal (life) coach, my great joy is to inspire people to move beyond the barriers that have held them back. I love working with people in transition: people feeling stale in their jobs and looking for the next challenge; women whose children are growing up and who finally have time to focus on themselves; people beginning to raise a family and trying to figure out how to balance career and family; people adjusting to being in a committed partnership and people adjusting to being newly single. For the past 4 or 5 years, much of my work has been with federal executives and executive directors of non-profit organizations, focusing on leadership development.

In addition to my coaching work, it has been particularly gratifying for me to be actively involved with the International Coach Federation, first on the Board and as President of the Metro DC Chapter, and then as a member of the Independent Review Board of the Ethics Committee of the Global ICF. I have done that work now since 2009 and have watched the profession grow and mature from that vantage point. It’s an exciting time for the profession!  http://www.susanbraverman.com/
