Four Decisions: People

 Is everyone in your company pulling their own weight and contributing as they should? If you had to start the company all over tomorrow, would you enthusiastically rehire everyone on your team? Are you looking to improve productivity? Do you want to create leaders at all levels of your organization? Gazelles’ “People” tools will help you and your team to get the right people doing the right things with clear accountabilities and metrics.

Still think that “People” issues don’t matter? What would you do if you couldn’t fire anyone and the lives of an entire nation depended on the ability of your team to work together? Consider the experience of Capt. L. David Marquet, commanding officer of the nuclear attack submarine, U.S.S. Santa Fe (SSN-763).

USS Santa Fe

As described in his book, “Turn the Ship Around” (, Capt. Marquet inherited a multi-billion dollar vessel that ranked LAST in virtually every category important to the U.S. Navy. Listen to the clip below to learn how Capt. Marquet created a Leader-Leader culture aboard Santa Fe. What you won’t hear in the clip is the legacy of Capt. Marquet’s work: because of the principles he employed, 10 of his officers were selected to command their own submarines, over 3 times the Navy’s average. People decisions matter.
