"Flying in the Face of Fear shares Campbell's leadership journey as a combat-proven fighter pilot and senior military leader. Fighter pilot culture is unique. They spend their lives working in an environment where the stakes are high, where they must make split-second decisions to survive, and where training missions can be just as dangerous as actual combat. They must work together as a team, or they will fail. Because of their high-risk environment, they have developed distinctive leadership techniques and principles that are tested under extreme stress, both in training and combat. These techniques and principles allow them to inspire and empower high-performing teams to achieve success. The lessons in Flying in the Face of Fear stem from Campbell's own successes and failures during her military career, which are incredibly relevant for leaders outside the military environment as well. Leaders must deal with challenging and stressful situations, face their fears, and persevere in the face of adversity. While there is no singular recipe for leadership success, these proven principles have worked for Campbell in training and combat with teams of all sizes. They have also worked for the leaders she's led, trained, coached, and mentored throughout her 24 years of service and beyond. Flying in the Face of Fear is a collection of lessons and stories that will serve as a resource for any leader who is willing to make an impact and a difference on the teams they lead."--Provided by publisher.
