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.

"Lohrenz has real leadership experience and she shares her insights on every page of this bold, fresh take on the subject." -Randy Gage, author of the New York Times bestseller Risky Is the New Safe

"Carey Lohrenz has written a book that is about much more than leadership. Carey's story is about looking life straight in the eyes and saying 'Bring it.' Bring the challenges, the victories, the hard times, the absolute joy of meaningful accomplishment--bring it all. This book grabs your heart and spirit from the first page and never lets go. I highly recommend Fearless Leadership." -Joe Calloway, author of Be the Best at What Matters Most

This book takes you on an exciting ride that teaches what it takes to face your fears, support your team, and lead your mission successfully." -Mark Sanborn, New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestselling author of The Fred Factor and You Don't Need a Title to Be a Leader
