“A fascinating read. If you aspire to be an exceptional leader and really make a difference, Fearless Leadership offers a down-to-earth, understandable flight plan.”
–Howard Putnam former CEO of Southwest Airlines
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 great American, a great speaker, and a great writer. I admire her on every level. Fearless Leadership is a fast-paced, fascinating read that every person, leader or not, will enjoy and learn from. I love this book.”
Larry Winget, Six-time New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestselling author
“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.”
