About the book
In Leadership Is Language, former US Navy captain L. David Marquet offers a radical playbook to empower your people and put your team on a path to continuous improvement. The framework will help you achieve the right balance between deliberation and action, and take bold risks without endangering your mission. As a submarine captain, Marquet used his counterintuitive model of leadership to turn the worst-performing submarine crew into the best-performing one in the fleet, a story he recounted in his bestselling book Turn the Ship Around! Now, in Leadership Is Language, he draws on a wide range of examples, from the 2017 Oscars Best Picture mishap to the tragic sinking of the SS El Faro, to show you exactly how the words you use (and don't use) impact how your people contribute.

It's not about manipulation or coercion but getting everyone comfortable to commit to the teams work.
Try the sample if you need a bit more convincing.
And as a final gift, the materials that David provides through his LinkedIn and YouTube presence are really worthwhile and keep things fresh.
Now, stop reading this review (good as it is) and read the book (which is really great)!
