Biography

A Legendary Tale of Organizational Transformation: Mike Abrashoff took command of the worst-performing ship in the Navy’s Pacific Fleet – 12 months later it was the best ship in the entire Navy . . . using the same crew. How? The transformation began with Abrashoff working to see the ship through the eyes of his crew and learning to lead differently.

Leadership Lessons – Heralded in Harvard Business Review and Fast Company: Dozens of publications have cited Abrashoff’s tale as an inspiring lesson for business. Leaders identify with his story of being accountable for the results in an environment where they don’t make the rules. He wrestled with an extreme version of the management challenges business faces today – and won.

U.S.S. Benfold: The Ship That Launched a Bestseller: Since it was released in 2002, It’s Your Ship has sold nearly 900,000 copies. Its timeless message of leadership and organizational transformation has inspired thousands. Don’t use the outside forces that stand in your way as excuses – control the things you can influence and amazing results will follow. A Powerful Message on Improving Organizational Performance: Command-and-control leadership is dead.

As a speaker, Mike Abrashoff challenges and inspires audiences to rethink their beliefs about leadership and organizational culture. His powerful talks are tailored to suit: improve engagement, execution, leadership skills, teamwork, innovation and more.

Inspiring Keynote Speaker on Leadership and Change: As commander, the one thing Abrashoff could influence was his crew’s attitude. “I didn’t turn the ship around,” he says “my crew did that. I created an environment where they felt safe, empowered and supported. When they came to me with a problem, I’d say ‘It’s your ship – how would you fix it?’.” Roadmap to Creating a Powerful Organizational Culture: Culture is the ultimate competitive advantage. “Leaders must understand how profoundly they affect people. Their optimism and pessimism are equally infectious and set the tone and spirit of everyone around them.” Abrashoff shows how to unleash a culture that achieves breakthrough.
