“Span of Control is one of the best military themed leadership books I have ever read. Carey Lohrenz does a remarkable job of connecting success in the cockpit of a fighter jet with success in life. If you’re going to buy one leadership book this year, make it this one!”

What do you do when you’re under pressure,
overwhelmed and ready to get what you really want?

As one of the first female F-14 Tomcat fighter pilots in the US Navy, as well as a CEO, board member, mom, business consultant, Wall Street Journal and USA Today bestselling author, and global speaker, author Carey Lohrenz knows that the stress we experience can be just as intense as the stress in the cockpit of a fighter jet going Mach 2.

But she’s got a secret weapon to prevail: years of training to overcome the specific natures of uncertainty, stress, burnout, anxiety, and pressure.

At our core, we know we’ve lost control. We’ve lost our grip on what we really want and who we really want to be. In order to solve the challenges of chaos and make our goals, dreams, and commitments a reality, we have to understand that in order to succeed when the pressure is on and to improve our performance overall, we’ve got to know what we can and cannot control.

In Span of Control, a Wall Street Journal and USA Today bestseller, Lohrenz walks us through the fundamentals of surviving and succeeding during times of crisis.

Weaving together eye-opening science, gripping personal stories, insightful interviews, prescriptive advice, and a high-octane dose of encouragement and practicality, Span of Control helps leaders recognize how to focus on what matters most, formulate a plan for success, and communicate what’s possible.
