Publisher's Summary

An F-14 fighter pilot's top lessons for leading fearlessly - and bringing a team to peak performance

As an aviation pioneer, Carey D. Lohrenz learned what fearless leadership means in some of the most demanding and extreme environments imaginable: the cockpit of an F-14 and the flight deck of an aircraft carrier. Here, her teams had to perform at their peak - or lives were on the line. Faltering leadership was simply unacceptable. Through these experiences, Lohrenz identified a fundamental truth: high-performing teams require fearless leaders.

Since leaving the Navy, she's translated that lesson into a new field, helping top business leaders, from Fortune 500 executives to middle managers, supercharge performance in today's competitive business environments. In Fearless Leadership, Lohrenz walks you through the three fundamentals of real fearlessness - courage, tenacity, and integrity - and then reveals fearless leadership in action, offering advice on how to set a bold vision, bring the team together (as wingmen, not Top Gun mavericks), execute effectively, and stay resilient through hard times.

Whether you're stepping into your first leadership role or looking to get out of a longstanding rut, Fearless Leadership will act like your afterburner - rocketing you to ever-higher levels of performance.

Great Book

I was initially hesitant, as I figured this would be a book all about “girl power”, but I was pleasantly surprised. This book was fantastic and I really enjoyed it! Carey had her fair share of struggle and accomplishment and was able to overcome it all. Carey does a great job with the audio performance and the material was great and practical. Highly recommend!

Shout out to the Brian Buffini podcast for bringing me here :)

right on the money

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

It is incredible how the author managed to sum up so well the things I do and try to improve upon every day. She has organized what I have implemented from life in the trenches. Well done.

Great book for women entering leadership

I was promoted to my first leadership role at a healthcare nonprofit organization less than a year before the pandemic began. I have a 2 year old (just turned 3) during this and this has been the hardest year of my life. I was feeling burnt out and discouraged but reading this was equal parts inspiring and helpful. Listening to Carey’s story and her helpful advice on cultivating resilience was exactly what I needed! Can’t wait for her next book.

Great life lessons

This book had great life lessons and I learned a lot. It was a little hard to listen to for me since she was a little monotone through the story. She is a BEAST though and I’m honored to have read her book!

This book is an inspiration and well worth the read. It's uplifting and would give anyone struggling with their circumstances some needed courage to carry on. In the face of adversity, it discusses how to be courageous, persevere and have the highest integrity doing so. She delivers a fantastic performance that comes from the heart. She truly is a fearless leader. Thanks, Carey!

A great read

Love all the practical lessons on leadership in this book and the brutal honesty about issues that happen due to gender. I love the example she set for women who are going through similar frustrations in their career.

Nice story of perseverance.

I expected a book on leadership which this is not. Instead this is the story of the significant barriers the author faced on the road to becoming a female fighter pilot. I admire her courage, but the title led me to believe the book was about leadership.
