The Learning Leader Show

  • You must focus attention and effort explicitly and relentlessly only on the limited number of priorities that can be controlled.
  • You must set a clear vision and create a flight plan for success, communicate that vision, and translate it into concrete goals, and achievable “to do’s.”
  • Carey walks us through the fundamentals of surviving and succeeding during times of crisis.
  • 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.
  • “Knowing your value, speaking up, and not flying under the radar—this is what fearless leadership is about.”
  • “If you want to become a stronger leader, you must be willing to step up, show up, and put in the time!”
  • “There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure.”
  • “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!” – Admiral William McRaven
