At The Spotlight: Michael Abrashoff On Motivating Your People

Michael Abrashoff took command of the worst-performing navy ship and crew in the Pacific Fleet and—within just one year—made it the best in the fleet. The challenges that faced him on the under-performing ship were staggering: low morale, high crew turnover, and dismal performance evaluations. What drove Michael’s success was the realization that he needed to take a strong lead if things were going to improve. In his riveting talks, Michael details what he did to turn his ship around, and how business leaders can take his lessons to achieve results and success with their own “crews.” We were lucky to have him visit our office recently and are thrilled to share this great clip from his talk, above.
