Integrity: The Courage to Meet the Demands of Reality by Henry CloudIntegrity. It is more than simple honesty. Its the key to success. A person with integrity has the -- often rare -- ability to pull everything together, to make it all happen no matter how challenging the circumstances.
Drawing on experiences from his work with Fortune 500 companies, nonprofits, and individual leaders, Dr. Henry Cloud, a clinical psychologist and nationally syndicated radio host, shows how our character can keep us from achieving all we want to (or could) be.
In Integrity, Dr. Cloud explores the six qualities of character that define integrity. He uses stories from well-known business leaders like Michael Dell and sports figures like Tiger Woods to illustrate each of these qualities. He shows us how people with integrity:
Are able to connect with others and build trust Are oriented toward reality Finish well Embrace the negative Are oriented toward increase Have an understanding of the transcendent
Success is not related to only talent or brains. There are a lot of bright, talented people who are never successful. And the most successful are not only the ones with the most talent. The real factor, Cloud demonstrates, is the makeup of the person. All of us can grow in the kinds of real character that bring about fruitful relationships and achievement of purpose, mission, and goals. Integrity is not something that you either have or dont, but instead is an exciting growth path that all of us can engage in and enjoy.

Most of us go through life believing we are good people. Most leaders are people who go the extra mile and do everything in their power to do the right thing. Yet every leader faces challenges, has things go wrong and suffers consequences of their decisions. Every leader has moments where they sit back and wonder how things could have possibly gone so wildly off base. I used to ask myself how I could care so much, work so hard and want to do good for others so badly and somehow have things still end up in a state of disaster. As many others feel, I felt like I was a good person with bad things happening to me. Author Dr.
