    Wall Street Journal best seller

    From the acclaimed author of Turn the Ship Around!, former US Navy Captain David Marquet, comes a radical new playbook for empowering your team to make better decisions and take greater ownership.

    You might imagine that an effective leader is someone who makes quick, intelligent decisions, gives inspiring speeches, and issues clear orders to their team so they can execute a plan to achieve your organization's goals. Unfortunately, David Marquet argues, that's an outdated model of leadership that just doesn't work anymore.

    As a leader in today's networked, information-dense business climate, you don't have full visibility into your organization or the ground reality of your operating environment. In order to harness the eyes, ears, and minds of your people, you need to foster a climate of collaborative experimentation that encourages people to speak up when they notice problems and work together to identify and test solutions.

    Too many leaders fall in love with the sound of their own voice, and wind up dictating plans and digging in their heels when problems begin to emerge. Even when you want to be a more collaborative leader, you can undermine your own efforts by defaulting to command-and-control language we've inherited from the industrial era.

    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.

    In his last book, Turn the Ship Around!, Marquet told the incredible story of abandoning command-and-control leadership on his submarine and empowering his crew to turn the worst performing submarine to the best performer in the fleet. Now, with Leadership is Language he gives businesspeople the tools they need to achieve such transformational leadership in their organizations.

    Kritikerstimmen

    “Full of compelling advice on how to lead more effectively by choosing your words more wisely.” (Adam Grant, author of Originals and Give and Take, and host of the TED podcast WorkLife)

    “Leaders have to make difficult decisions every day under conditions of uncertainty. How can they get the best information and ideas from their people to help them decide? Leadership is Language is a refreshing, actionable framework that helps you navigate uncertainty and tackle thorny problems by bringing out the best in your people.” (Annie Duke, author of Thinking in Bets)

    “In Turn The Ship Around, Marquet challenged us to change the way we lead; Now, in Leadership is Language, he challenges us to change the way we talk as leaders - dropping the archaic language of command and control and learning the language of creativity, collaboration, and commitment.” (Liz Wiseman, author of Multipliers)

    This is the Future

    In my opinion, one of the best leadership books out there, because it focuses on the crucial part of communication in the context of team dynamics.

    When I read the title, I thought this book was about the kind of communication you should hold back, but instead it is more about how to choose your words to foster psychological safety and create an environment where everybody feels okay to speak up. So the title is probably its weakest spot. The combination with concepts from other notable authors (e.g. 'Thinking Fast and Slow') shows how, the concepts discussed in this book fit into the greater scheme of modern leadership concepts.

    I think that the next generation of successful leaders will apply the concepts in this book one way or another, as they fit very well the demands of the upcoming generation.
