The story of Captain Abrashoff and his command of USS Benfold has become legendary inside and outside the Navy. By governing his ship through 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 Your 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.

Abrashoff's timely advice will be eminently prescriptive and will feature anecdotes and insights from leaders of businesses large and small and from public and non-profit sectors. Download and start listening now!

    " The author share's stories about people he admires in different industries and then sidetracks into his personal navy experiences. It's interesting to see how the military mind values skills in the civillian world. "

    " Better than the "It's Your Ship," if for no other reason than it documents the humility of what the author has learned from publishing the first book. Finally sunk in how to trust my employees to do the right thing by the end...something I've struggled with. "
