Guest Bio:

Mike Abrashoff became Commander of the USS Benfold — considered one of the worst ships in the U.S. Pacific Fleet — at just 36 years old. With Abrashoff in charge, a shift began. And in just 12 months, the Benfold was ranked No. 1. The former Navy captain attributes this to hard work, excellence and a change in culture. Abrashoff now shares his methods for success as a speaker, and through works such as his best-selling book, It’s Your Ship: Management Techniques from the Best Damn Ship in the Navy.
