David Marquet, Inc. Magazine’s Top 100 Leadership Speaker and the bestselling author of “Turn the Ship Around”, discusses his keynote topic at this year’s Southern Fried Agile conference: “Move Your People Up the Ladder of Leadership”.
Marquet emphasizes a “lean back” approach to leadership – giving people the room to lean in and make more decisions on their own. “What we want to do is push the authority for making decisions out to the people who have the information. You get a much more resilient, adaptive, agile organization.”
He gives recommendations for how to hone our leadership skills in everyday life by practicing how to invite feedback and creating a safe environment for receiving it.
