Abrashoff is a staple for organizational transformation and leadership. He has worked with over 1,200 organizations  from universities to non-profits, startups to Fortune 500s, hospitality to tech, and more – to help shape and recreate their leadership initiatives .

At 36, he was selected to be Commander of USS Benfold and was the most junior commanding officer in the Pacific fleet. The challenges of this underachieving destroyer were staggering, with low morale and the highest turnover rate in the Navy. Few thought the ship could improve. Yet 12 months later it was ranked No. 1 in performance – using the same crew. Abrashoff did this by replacing command and control leadership with commitment and cohesion. The lesson was clear: Leadership matters and culture is everything.

Abrashoff is an author of “It’s Your Ship,” “It’s Our Ship” and “Get Your Ship Together.”
