Mike Abrashoff

Mike Abrashoff, Former Commander of U.S.S. Benfold and Experiend Entrepreneur 9:10 a.m. - 9:50 a.m.

At the age of 36, Mike Abrashoff was selected to become Commander of U.S.S.
Benfold, at the time he was the most junior commanding officer in the Pacific Fleet. The
challenges were staggering with exceptionally low morale and poor performance results.
Few thought that this ship could improve, but Mike only became more resolved. By
instilling a sense of urgency and by creating an atmosphere of commitment to excellence,
Benfold became the best ship in the Pacific Fleet.

“A lot of people do whatever it takes to secure the next promotion. All I ever
wanted to do in the navy was to command a ship. I did not care if I ever got promoted
again. And that attitude enabled me to focus solely on results instead of doing the right
things for my career. Along the way, it was my people that created the results that ensured
my next promotion.”

The solution was a system of beliefs that Mike calls GrassRoots Leadership. A
process of replacing command and control with commitment and cohesion, by engaging the
hearts, minds, and loyalties of workers – a belief that Mike achieves with conviction and
humility. “The most important thing that a captain can do is to see the ship through the
eyes of the crew.” This meant interviewing every single person on his ship, from the most
senior officer to the lowest recruit. It was an experience that began to generate invaluable
ideas, often from unexpected sources.
