Integrity: The Courage to Meet the Demands of Reality
by: Henry Cloud
In this path-breaking book, Dr. Henry Cloud shows what integrity is, how
it is lived in everyday experience and what one must do to determine
whether you are perceived as someone with character and integrity.
Central to question of integrity is whether a person has the courage to
face up to reality. Cloud shows how the ability to address adversity, to
learn lessons from it, and adjust one's behavior is a greater
determinant of success than brains or talent or charm. He shows that
successful leaders have competencies, alliances and, most important,
character. Then he examines exactly what behaviors constitute character
and how they are expressed in real life situations. Assessing and
building the six essential qualities of character is the goal of this
book. It will be used widely by a range of people because the things he
identifies apply equally across regions, cultures and classes.
