Why do some leaders get and accomplish what they want as a matter of routine, while others seem to regularly experience frustration and setbacks? Why do some leaders achieve their goals and reach new heights, while others barely "hang in there" and survive? Based on his groundbreaking psychological study of the ways that successful individuals think and behave, Dr. Henry Cloud presents a simple yet profound roadmap to help leaders-and those who want to become leaders-arrive at greater levels of personal growth and corporate influence than they previously thought were possible. The good news for all of us is that leadership success is not limited to vague notions of "charisma" nor traditional advantages like graduate degrees and connections, but much more to a pattern of thinking and moving forward that learns from mistakes and stays focused on goals.

El experto en psicología del liderazgo y autor best seller de Integridad, Necessary Endings, y Límites para líderes identifica el ingrediente crítico para el bienestar personal y profesional.
La mayor parte de liderazgo se enfoca en ayudar a líderes a desarrollar sus capacidades y conocimientos y cerrar las brechas en el desempeño. Esto es necesario, pero no suficiente. Utilizando evidencia de neurociencia y su trabajo con líderes, el doctor Henry Cloud demuestra que los mejores líderes se basan en otro recurso vital: relaciones personales y profesionales que potencian el crecimiento y les ayuda a superar los límites actuales.
La sabiduría popular sugiere que no debemos permitir que otras personas tengan poder sobre nosotros, pero la realidad es que lo hacen, para bien o para mal. Piensa en el jefe que te menosprecia mediante comentarios cortantes versus uno que te reta a superarte. O el colega que siempre busca el protagonismo versus el que te da la confianza para terminar un proyecto difícil. O el cónyuge que es honesto y te apoya versus el que se resiente con tu éxito. No importa cuán talentosos, inteligentes, o experimentados son los grandes líderes, todos comparten algo en común: el poder de otros en sus vidas.
Combinando estudios de caso cautivadores, resultados convincentes de investigación cerebral vanguardista, y ejemplos de su práctica de consultoría, el doctor Cloud argumenta que no importa si eres miembro de la milicia o un ejecutivo corporativo, el rendimiento sobresaliente depende de tener el tipo correcto de conexiones para potenciar el crecimiento personal y minimizar las asociaciones tóxicas y sus efectos. Al presentar un modelo dinámico del impacto que estos distintos tipos de conexiones producen, el doctor Cloud muestra a los lectores cómo obtener más de sí mismos basándose en la fuerza y la pericia de otras personas.
No puedes elejir si otros tienen o no poder en tu vida, pero puedes elegir qué tipo de relaciones deseas.
