Episode 050: Dr. Henry Cloud – Ridiculously In Charge

Episode 050: Dr. Henry Cloud – Ridiculously In Charge

I originally sent a cold email to Henry Cloud in February asking him to be one of the first guests on my podcast, The Learning Leader Show.  I am extremely happy that after 7 months of work (a lot of emails/calls/scheduling), we made it happen!  I’m extremely proud of this, and I was especially happy to hear the kind words Henry shared about The Learning Leader Show and what it stands for.

Having sold over 10 million books worldwide, Dr. Cloud’s work has been featured or reviewed in publications such as the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Boston Globe, Publisher’s Weekly, Los Angeles Times, Forbes, Fortune and many others. He is a frequent contributor to multiple news programs including CNN, Fox News Channel, ABC News and has a syndicated radio show in over 200 markets. Two of his premier books are: “Integrity: The Courage to Meet the Demands of Reality” and “Boundaries for Leaders: Results, Relationships, and being Ridiculously in Charge.”

Dr. Cloud has maintained an extensive leadership consulting practice for over twenty years, serving clients ranging from private and family held firms to public Fortune 500 Companies. Combining a background in clinical psychology and organizational leadership consulting with the experience of having founded and operated a successful health-care company, he brings an experience base which gives him a deep insight into how leaders function and the challenges they face.

Dr. Cloud has worked with individuals from all walks of life, for more than two decades. From Wall. St. to the inner city, his research based principles have been used by millions, and featured in all forms of major media. He believes that our fulfillment and effectiveness in life centers in three areas: First, the clinical: how we think, feel and behave. Second, the relational: how we connect, love and relate. And third, performance: how we use our talents to achieve our dreams and goals. His wide range of experience as a clinician directing a chain of hospitals and treatment centers, as a coach and performance consultant to celebrities, high performers, and business leaders, and as a student and advisor of the spiritual life, give him a breadth of background and knowledge to address the major issues of life, with practical, sound, research-proven techniques to help people resolve difficult obstacles and reach their purpose, calling and dreams.
