Program Details

CREW Detroit it’s time to Boss-UP in 2020!  The best way to start is to feed your soul with lessons from Carey Lohrenz.  Carey Lohrenz is a former lieutenant in the U.S. Navy who was the first fully qualified female naval aviator to fly the F-14 Tomcat in the U.S. military.  Her book shares her top lessons in leadership by equipping leaders with all kinds of “tools” that can bring a team to peak performance. The parallels between the world of naval aviation and the world of business are endless. Carey spoke at the CREW Network -2019 Convention, in Orlando. She shared her story and inspired so many CREW Detroit members who were present.

The book for this event is Fearless Leadership: High Performance Lessons from the Flight Deck, by Carey Lohrenz.

This is a members only event with the opportunity to SKYPE other CREW chapters in our region to join the conversation virtually.

About the book selection:

  • 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.

The book can be purchased as a hard cover, ebook or audible book. Purchase here on Amazon.
