Pirates didn't just break the rules, they rewrote them. They didn't just reject society, they reinvented it. Pirates didn't just challenge the status quo, they changed everyfuckingthing. Pirates faced a self-interested establishment, a broken system, industrial-scale disruption and an uncertain future. Sound familiar? Be More Pirate unveils the innovative strategies of golden age pirates, drawing parallels between the tactics and teachings of legends like Henry Morgan and Blackbeard with modern rebels like Elon Musk, Malala and Banksy.

I thought about writing a review like the one that Mark mentions in his book. However that would be too obvious.

Over the years of various management positions I’ve held there has been a number of techniques I’ve tried to drive the performance of either myself or my team. I’ve started to put some of your ideas in to practice and they have started to have great results.

I had a 1:1 with one member of my team used a few of the techniques and it took the level of conversation from a reasonable coaching discussion to a transformational insightful discussion.

Thank you!
