Carey Lohrenz-Fearless Leadership: High Performance Lessons From the Flight Deck

The cockpit of an F-14 is one of the most demanding environments imaginable. The flight deck of an aircraft carrier is one of the most complex industrial work-sites there is. It’s here that Carey Lohrenz learned what fearless leadership means. Her teams had to perform at their peak, or lives were on the line.

Added to that intensity, she was breaking new ground for women in the military. Since leaving the Navy, Lohrenz has worked with thousands of business leaders, from Fortune 500 executives to middle managers, helping them and their teams flourish. She’s distilled her extraordinary career down to this hypothesis: high-performing
teams require fearless leaders, which has been proven again and again.

In “Fearless Leadership: High Performance Lessons From the Flight Deck,” she walks readers through the three fundamentals a leader must possess to exhibit real fearlessness: courage, tenacity, and integrity. Lohrenz then reveals what fearless leadership looks like in action, offering advice on how to set a bold vision, bring the team together (as wing-men, not Top Gun mavericks), execute effectively, and stay resilient through hard times. Whether they’re stepping into their first leadership role or looking to get out of a longstanding rut, readers will find this resource to act like an afterburner, rocketing them to ever-higher levels of performance.

Carey Lohrenz is a dynamic communicator with an incredible story. As the first female F-14 Tomcat pilot, she was a pioneer in military aviation. Having flown missions worldwide as a combat, mission-ready United States Navy pilot, Carey Lohrenz is used to working in fast moving, dynamic environments where inconsistent execution can generate catastrophic results.

Carey is uniquely qualified in the fundamentals of winning under pressure, reducing errors and overcoming obstacles. Her mastery of these fundamentals can help your team triumph in this high-risk, time crunched world. Her experience in the all-male environment of fighter aviation and her ability to pass on the lessons learned in her career allow her to deliver insight and guidance from a credible platform.

Her ability to connect with both an audience and on a one-on-one level, coupled with her knowledge and experience in leading high-performing, diverse teams, has made her highly sought after as a business consultant and leadership speaker.
