Publisher's Summary

The coauthor of the classic best seller Boundaries, with over two million copies sold, and an expert on the psychology of business and leadership performance explains the behavioral reasons why some people get great results and others don't.
In Boundaries for Leaders, Dr. Henry Cloud gives leaders the tools and techniques they need to achieve the performance they desire - in their organizations and in themselves. Drawing on the latest findings from neuroscience, Dr. Cloud shows why it's critical for leaders to set the conditions that make people's brains perform at their highest levels. How do great leaders do this? One way is through the creation of "boundaries" - structures that determine what will exist and what will not.
Here you will learn seven leadership boundaries that set the stage, tone, and culture for a results-driven organization, including how to:

Help people focus their attention on the things that matter most
Build the emotional climate that drives brain functioning
Facilitate connections that boost energy and momentum
Create organizational thought patterns that limit negativity and helplessness
Identify paths for people to take control of the activities that drive results
Create high-performance teams organized around the behaviors that drive results
Lead yourself in a manner that protects the vision
The strong call to action in this book is that leaders are ridiculously in charge of all these elements, and they must own what they either create or allow to exist.
Filled with inspiring and practical examples from Dr. Cloud's coaching practice, Boundaries for Leaders is essential listening for everyone who aspires to lead companies, teams, and cultures defined by high performance and healthy relationships.

I have many business books but not many fall into the category of outstanding. Truly a prescription for a successful leader. I lead leaders and will most definitely use this in my work. I have quoted extensively - my favorite part is when people get into a negativity spin they exhibit this with 3 "P's" over time; first they take it personal; then it becomes pervasive; and finally it becomes permanent. This helped me see a struggle with one of my leaders in a very clear way.
I purchased this in hardcover so as to have it as a reference and have recommended it to many already.
I see there is a workbook and also other titles by Dr. Cloud - I am sure I will be investigating these too.

Must read for any leader in business

What made the experience of listening to Boundaries for Leaders the most enjoyable?

It was narrated by the author so the passion came through, this doesn't always come through with audible business books.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The author! Great passion and a very good orator.

Have you listened to any of Henry Cloud’s other performances? How does this one compare?

No but I'm searching,

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes and even though it was a long listen I managed it.

Any additional comments?

I've suggested this book to my CEO, it should be a staple read for all leaders in business
