Carey shares the fundamentals that helped her win in the cockpit at Mach 2

As the first female F-14 Tomcat Fighter Pilot in the U.S. Navy, Carey Lohrenz is used to working in fast moving, dynamic environments where inconsistent execution can generate catastrophic results.

The same challenges are found in business: markets change, customer needs evolve and if you do not adapt quickly, your company is at risk. In her motivating and engaging keynote presentations, Carey shares her fascinating experiences operating in one of the world’s most challenging environments – an aircraft carrier. She 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.

  • Truth is transferrable, and the lessons Carey Lohrenz learned as a top naval aviator flying off the deck of an aircraft carrier are lessons that will benefit you and your business. 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.

  • 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.
