Lessons in Leadership
An industry pioneer and team performance accelerant, Carey is uniquely qualified in the fundamentals of Leadership, Teamwork, Winning Under Pressure, Reducing Errors, and Overcoming Obstacles. This highly popular leadership keynote will challenge, inform, and inspire your team to move to higher levels of performance in these difficult economic times. Lohrenz offers bottom-line expertise with clear, realistic takeaway items for audiences that can produce both short-term and life changing results.
Lessons in Partnership
Just like in aviation in a rapidly changing global environment, speed is life. Collaboration is critical to business success and managing successful strategic partnerships is crucial. Competitive advantage is gained when your organization can optimize partnerships and strategic alliances. Deeper relationships with partners can be the key to long term success and growth. In this inspiring and engaging keynote, Carey shares what it takes to be on the "Leading Edge." Those things that helped her succeed in one of the most extreme environments on earth can help elevate your team to gain advantage and uncover opportunities.
Striking a Balance
A successful career, a happy family, and a balanced personal life leave little time for many people to nurture their dreams. As a former Naval Aviator, a corporate executive, and as a busy mother of four, Carey "Vixen" Lohrenz knows first-hand the challenges of navigating the many demands of daily work-life balance. In this riveting and inspirational keynote speech, Carey will inspire you to "Be the Catalyst" and look beyond your circumstances. Just as pilots do a "systems check" before takeoff, Carey's motivational speech will walk you through a Pre-Flight Check on your journey towards success.
Remaining Relevant
In a challenging economic environment, remaining relevant to your customers and within your organization is critical to your survival. Those who fail to deliver value to their consumers, shareholders, clients, and teammates become extinct. Could that happen to you? In aviation, complacency kills. The same is true in business. If you become complacent and ignore the warning signs (shifts in culture, trends, global demands, budget restrictions), you could be facing extinction. In this energizing and empowering keynote, Carey shares the fundamentals that can help your team win in business by learning the importance of remaining relevant, how to accelerate performance, how to stay agile and adaptable, and how high performing teams become excellent.
High Risk, High Reward (Safety)
Carey's "Patient Safety" keynotes and workshops challenge, inform & inspire your employees to move to higher levels of performance and operational excellence in high-risk and sometimes dangerous environments. Managing risk is like walking a tightrope. It is a constant balancing act of identifying and mitigating safety, operational and reputational risks. These tools will allow you to survive and succeed with superior results consistently, just as Carey Lohrenz did in the demanding world of fighter aviation.
