More About Boundaries for Leaders by Henry Cloud
 
 
 
Overview

The coauthor of the classic bestseller Boundaries, with over 2 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; and 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 reading for everyone who aspires to lead companies, teams, and cultures defined by high performance and healthy relationships.

Cloud (Boundaries) argues that the personal and interpersonal side of leadership is every bit as important as vision and execution. Leaders, he shows, set the stage and either propel or derail, and most of the time these issues have little to do with a leader's business acumen and more to do with how they lead people and the culture they foster. To that end, Cloud puts forth the principles of boundaries—" that determine what will exist"—as a key component of effective leadership. He identifies seven leadership boundaries that make everything else work (or not) and shows how they set the tone and climate for performance. Leaders, Cloud suggests, are what they create and what they allow: the vision they invite, goals employees pursue, and behavior that is and isn't allowed. Leaders set the agenda and make the rules and therefore own the culture and the boundaries, which includes allowing for employee brains to work. Cloud also considers leaders to be the gatekeepers of organizational thinking, stressing the connection between control and results. For all leaders who have had less-than-hoped-for outcomes, Cloud offers an insightful and fresh approach to managing people to get the desired results.
