How Would the Marines Run Your Business?
A Book Review of “Corps Business: The 30 Management Principles of the U.S. Marines”
Recently, I posted an article featuring David Marquet entitled “Good to Great (A Submariner’s Profile in Empowerment).” Thanks to the social media known as the Blogosphere here at WordPress, as well as my reach on LinkedIn, I was fortunate to make Mr. Marquet’s acquaintance online. My blog post about David was originally supposed to be a Quote of the Day, featuring a quote that David Tweeted, and posted on LinkedIn. As I began to write the post, I did some simple Google research. I found out that David had a very impressive and successful Navy career, and that his leadership philosophy was certainly outside the box. Quite simply, David’s philosophy is “Leadership isn’t about creating followers, it’s about creating leaders.” My blog post featured David and his leadership philosophy, and I encourage you to read it. And, also, please take notice of the post’s Related Articles and associated footnotes, at the end of the post, for additional content that I am certain you will find interesting.
David has taken great interest in my blog here at Command Performance Leadership, and he has graciously featured a few of my posts on his blog. About a month ago, I received an email from David asking me if I wanted to write a book review for his website and blog. I, of course, told him that I would be honored to write a book review for him and his website, and I accepted his offer. With his approval, I decided to write the review on the book, “Corps Business: The 30 Management Principles of the U.S. Marines,” by David H. Freedman.
Last week, I submitted my draft of the book review to David, and today he has posted it to his blog (see link below). I wanted to share with you this book review by directing you to David’s blog, and not simply cut and paste the book review here on this post. I think that David’s blog, and his associated web links and organization, should be viewed by this audience. So, please take a few moments and surf around the following links:
