In Integrity, Dr. Cloud explores the six qualities of character that define integrity, and 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

Integrity by Henry Cloud Mar 3, 2010
Fabulous book. Writing style somewhat like a dialog, but the content and substance is awesome. He has great insight into human nature. It's a very inspiring book, much like How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie
There is more to integrity than you might think Dec 9, 2009
I remember discussing integrity with a successful businessman. He thought that you either had integrity or you did not, and if you did not have it he would not hire you. The problem is that I have never met anyone who was completely trustworthy, and I have never met anyone who was completely untrustworthy. And there is a lot more to integrity than trustworthiness.
Henry Cloud identifies six aspects of integrity in his book Integrity: establishing trust, orientation towards truth, getting results, embracing the negative, orientation towards increase, and orientation towards transcendence. While I am not sure I would have picked exactly the same components of integrity, I found the book to be a very useful exploration of what needs to happen below the surface of honesty.
A person who has integrity is not just someone who tells the truth. It is someone who also understands and communicates well with other people, who has a firm grip on reality, who tells it like it is, who has the persistence and fortitude to see things through to the end, who listens to criticism and is willing to endure confrontation and do the difficult jobs, who is always learning, and who understands that he or she is a small person in a very big world.

Greater Courage Needed for Today's Reality Aug 25, 2009
Dr Henry Cloud's study of integrity---a character trait that seems to have fallen by the wayside in recent years---is a compelling perspective which illustrates the frailty of character a large segment of society seems to possess nowadays.
Dr Cloud, a renowned clinical psychologist & corporate consultant, succinctly pinpoints the six character traits of integrity: (1) Create trust, (2) Unafraid of reality, (3) Results oriented, (4) Solves "negative realities", (5) Causes growth, & (6) Finds meaning in life. These characteristics may seem like platitudes from a previous era, but they are right on the money; and many of these traits seemingly have disappeared from many sectors of our society. That's the harsh reality we're facing today.
In recent years, an erosion of integrity has been apparent, from Wall Street to Washington, DC, and throughout the hallowed halls of corporate America. The results have been an economic crisis not seen since The Great Depression, and a political arena filled with hype and very little help.
Clearly, these difficult times require an even greater amount of courage to get through. Let's hope it starts happening soon; reality isn't getting any softer, and itegrity is getting more difficult to find.
Integrity foundational for all relationships Jul 6, 2009
Integrity: The Courage to Meet the Demands of Reality This book so impacted my life that I bought 10 more copies and gave one to each of my leaders now taking our whole leadership team through it chapter by chapter.
I have also given away two copies to business friends and they say it is transformational.
