Content descriptions

Bibliography, etc. Note: Includes bibliographical references and index.
Summary, etc.: "Stephen Covey inspired millions with his writings but where did Dr. Covey get his inspiration? This is the story of one such source, one that Dr. Covey himself called the most empowered organization he had ever seen - and a nuclear powered submarine no less. From the vantage point of the commander of the USS Santa Fe, read how the crew completely turned the ship around, going from worst to first by questioning many of our basic leadership assumptions and shifting from take-control authority to give-control empowerment. Share the author's insights as the crew gains unprecedented decision making authority, the risks of doing so, and the reward of an exponentially more effective and more resilient organization. Learn how to achieve astounding results by applying the author's practical steps, such as - Release proactivity and initiative with ''I intend to...'' - Build teamwork and minimize errors with ''deliberate action'' - Enhance responsibility and ownership by eliminating top-down monitoring - Improving morale by focusing on excellence rather than errors" -- Provided by publisher.
