Chad Gordon interviews Dr. Henry Cloud, author of the new book, The Power of the Other: The startling effect other people have on you, from the boardroom to the bedroom and beyond—and what to do about it.
Cloud shares the importance of recognizing the impact that others have on your success. He explains how every significant act in your life always includes someone else. How are you being influenced by others—and how are you influencing the key people in your life?
Cloud also shares a unique "four corner" model that helps you identify relationships that are toxic and lead to feelings of disconnectedness, inferiority, or feeling fake. He describes how to move beyond these three negative corners and lead yourself and others into honest, authentic relationships where people thrive.
Cloud discusses strategies for moving beyond a good/bad mindset by creating a language and using a process that leads to real conversations that help people move forward. Whether it's in a one-on-one conversation, or in a team setting, you'll learn strategies to improve trust, feedback, and performance.
