David Marquette is a former US Nuclear Submarine Captain. Marquette turned his ship from being the worst to the best in the US Navy.

One of David’s stories is of sailors loading torpedoes. Long story short, they dropped a torpedo. It was in this moment of danger, Marquette came to realize to be at your best you need knowledge.

The same is true for the people you lead. Thankfully, for most of us, no one is going to die from their mistakes. However, the principle of needing to learn to be good is still true.

Give them the space to learn in their own way. There are so many ways that the team can increase their knowledge. The good news is most of them are inexpensive and will give you tremendous payback!

Lower the expectation on delivery, so they can learn as they work. Encourage them to run book clubs or skill drills (dojos). Have them teach each other. It really can be that easy.

You’ve got this.
