Early praise for Leadership is Language

"Full of compelling advice on how to lead more effectively by choosing your words more wisely."
--ADAM GRANT, author of Originals and Give and Take, and host of the TED podcast WorkLife

"Leaders have to make difficult decisions every day under conditions of uncertainty. How can they get the best information and ideas from their people to help them decide? Leadership is Language is a refreshing, actionable framework that helps you navigate uncertainty and tackle thorny problems by bringing out the best in your people."
--ANNIE DUKE, author of Thinking in Bets

"In Turn The Ship Around, Marquet challenged us to change the way we lead; Now, in Leadership is Language, he challenges us to change the way we talk as leaders - dropping the archaic language of command and control and learning the language of creativity, collaboration, and commitment.""
--LIZ WISEMAN, author of Multipliers

"Another outstanding book from Marquet - and a truly unique take on leadership that re-engineers our language. Anchored in how teams actually talk, Marquet shows leaders how to leave the Industrial Age language behind and use a different, "more blue" model going forward."
--VERNE HARNISH, founder of Entrepreneurs' Organization (EO) and author of Scaling Up

"How do you motivate team and individuals to do their best, be their best? Marquet's latest illustrates the powerful intersection of communication and leadership, with simple steps to transform your
thinking, your influence, and the lives in your span of care."
--BOB CHAPMAN, CEO of Barry-Wehmiller and author of Everybody Matters
