Contents Notes
Ahoy! -- Bouy up your people -- No more aye-aye men (or women) -- All hands on deck -- Foul weather doesn't respect rank -- Navigate by the stars -- Sail close to the wind -- Fly your true colors -- Epilogue. "The story of Captain Abrashoff and his command of USS Benfold has become legendary inside and outside the Navy. By governing his ship with his unique management techniques, Abrashoff turned the Benfold into a model of naval efficiency, with amazing cost savings, the highest gunnery score in the Pacific Fleet, and a highly motivated and top performing crew. In 'It's Your Ship,' he first demonstrated how to bring his successful management techniques from the ship to the boardroom. Now, in his newest book 'It's Our Ship,' in the same rugged, can-do voice, Abrashoff will focus on the leadership, motivational, and management insights and tips that he has learned from his last six years of addressing business and corporate audiences."--From publisher description.
