When you’re a leader, you have the watch.

Through seven deployments commanding sailors in the complex and dangerous world of nuclear submarine warfare, Jon Rennie experienced a deep form of leadership. On a sub, there is no escape. No “after work.” No home to commute to. You live and lead side-by-side with the crew, every day.

What Rennie didn’t realize was how much his time underwater prepared him to lead global industrial businesses and startups across multiple industries.

Becoming a leader worth following begins—and ends—with people.
