Rank #1: Carey Lohrenz-Fearless Leadership: High Performance Lessons From the Flight Deck

Podcast cover
Read more
This on demand audio is a part of the Game Changer Series. Chicke Fitzgerald interviews Carey Lohrenz. The original live interview was 5/20/16.

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.

Mistakes I Made at Work: 25 Influential Women Reflect on What They Got Out of Getting It Wrong by Jessica Bacal

This on demand audio series is a part of the Executive Girlfriends Group Vignette Series. Chicke Fitzgerald interviews Jessica Bacal. The original live interview was 11/13/15.

Today’s women are being told to “lean in,” to assert themselves, to ask for more, and to analyze their work/life balance. But despite all of this dialogue, there’s something that is not being addressed: advice on how to recover when you’ve stumbled.

Everyone makes mistakes, but for many women, acknowledging them can feel tantamount to career suicide. In Mistakes I Made at Work, I interview twenty-five high-achieving and influential women across a variety of fields—from writers to doctors to engineers.  They share their worst on-the-job moments, and how they used them as learning experiences to build successful and fascinating careers.

Jessica directs the Wurtele Center for Work & Life at Smith College, an independent women’s college in Massachusetts with students from every state and from 60 countries around the world.
