Dr. Henry Cloud Biography

Dr. Henry Cloud is an acclaimed leadership expert, clinical psychologist and New York Times bestselling author. His 46 books, including the iconic "Boundaries," have sold over 20 million copies worldwide. He has an extensive executive coaching background and experience as a leadership consultant, devoting the majority of his time working with CEOs, leadership teams, and executives to improve performance, leadership skills and culture.

Dr. Cloud founded and built a healthcare company starting in 1987, which operated inpatient, and outpatient treatment centers in forty markets in the Western U.S. There, he served as Clinical Director and principal for ten years. In the context of hands-on clinical experience, he developed and researched many of the treatment principles and methods that he communicates to audiences now. After selling the company, he devoted his time to consulting and coaching, spreading principles of hope and life-change through speaking, writing and media.

Throughout the same years and until the present, he has devoted much of his career to leadership performance and development, blending the disciplines of leadership and human functioning to helping CEO’s, teams, organizations and family entities. From his early clinical training, Dr. Cloud became interested in how personality structure, character and clinical issues integrated with human performance in business and sports, and began to build models that could be adapted to business and organizational contexts. Much of his later writings have focused on these areas, with a particular interest in the newer findings in neurobiology and brain research that affect leadership and performance. Dr. Cloud hosted a national radio show for 15 years airing in 200 markets in the U.S.

His book, "Integrity," was dubbed by the New York Times as “the best book in the bunch.” In 2011, Necessary Endings was called “the most important book you read all year.” His book Boundaries For Leaders was named by CEO Reads in the top five leadership books of its year. His newest book, "The Power of the Other," debuted at #5 on the Wall Street Journal Bestseller list.

Dr. Cloud’s work has been featured and reviewed by The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Boston Globe, Publisher’s Weekly, Los Angeles Times, and many other publications. Success Magazine named Dr. Cloud in the top 25 most influential leaders in personal growth and development, alongside Oprah, Brene Brown, Seth Godin and others. He is a frequent contributor to CNN, Fox News Channel, and other national media outlets.

As a speaker, he is a favorite at corporate events, conventions, and public arena events on a variety of topics, speaking regularly throughout the U.S. and internationally.

Dr. Cloud is a graduate of Southern Methodist University, with a B.S. in psychology. He completed his Ph.D. in clinical psychology at Biola University, and his clinical internship at Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health. He is an avid golfer, and actively involved in philanthropic efforts focusing on poverty and holistic relief in the U.S. and the Developing World.

He lives in Los Angeles with his wife, Tori, and their two daughters, Olivia and Lucy.

Dr. Henry Cloud Speaking Topics

Trust

It is tempting to think that trust is simple, that we should be able to spot a lack of trustworthiness relatively easily. But we all have our stories about misplaced trust. We either missed clear or subtle warning signs or there just were not any warning signs to see. Everything looked good on the surface, and maybe it was. But we got burned anyway. And sometimes we struggle to earn and keep the trust of those around us when trust bonds fail to form or are broken. When trust breaks down, so does our ability to move forward in business and in life.

Trust will help your audience:

  • Determine who is trustworthy and who is not

  • Identify and develop the attitudes, practices, and behaviors you need to become a trustworthy person for other people

  • Run a business or organization that invites the trust of your customers and stakeholders

  • Repair trust when it has been violated and broken, even when it feels broken beyond fixing

  • Protect yourself in the process of rebuilding trust that has been

Necessary Endings

Cutting your losses. Raising the white flag. Getting out while you can. Giving up. While endings are a natural part of life, we often experience them with a sense of sadness, hesitation, resignation, or regret. Psychologist and bestselling author Dr. Henry Cloud sees endings differently, though, and he asks a powerful question: How different would our personal and professional lives be if, rather than viewing these endings as failures, we saw them as necessary steps for creating the possibility of something better? In Necessary Endings, Dr. Cloud demonstrates that, when done well, ‘necessary endings’ allow us to stop pain, foster growth, reach personal and business goals, and live better lives. When done poorly though, good opportunities are lost, and misery either remains or is repeated. While we all face these kinds of endings daily, Dr. Cloud finds that most of us fall in the latter category and don’t handle endings very well and we need help. In Necessary Endings, Dr. Cloud gives you the tools you need to begin pruning the bad and the broken from your life so the good may begin growing again.

Boundaries for Leaders

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

Filled with inspiring and practical examples from Dr. Cloud’s coaching practice, Boundaries for Leaders is essential for everyone who aspires to lead companies, teams, and cultures defined by high performance and healthy relationships.

The Power of the Other

Most leadership coaching focuses on helping leaders build their skills and knowledge and close performance gaps. These are necessary but not sufficient. Using evidence from neuroscience and his work with leaders, Dr. Henry Cloud shows that the best performers draw on another vital resource: personal and professional relationships that fuel growth and help them surpass current limits. Combining engaging case studies, persuasive findings from cutting-edge brain research, and examples from his consulting practice, Dr. Cloud argues that whether you’re a Navy SEAL or a corporate executive, outstanding performance depends on having the right kind of connections to fuel personal growth and minimize toxic associations and their effects. Presenting a dynamic model of the impact these different kinds of connections produce, Dr. Cloud shows audience members how to get more from themselves by drawing on the strength and expertise of others. You don’t have a choice whether or not others have power in your life, but you can choose what kinds of relationships you want.

Changes That Heal

Many of us struggle with anxiety, loneliness, and feelings of inadequacy. We know that God created us in his image, but how can we be loving when we feel burned out? How can we be free when we struggle with addiction? Will we ever enjoy the complete healing God promises? Combining his professional expertise and personal experience, renowned psychologist Dr. Henry Cloud guides us through four basic ways to become joy-filled, mature followers of Christ:

  • Connect more deeply with others

  • Separate from others in healthy ways

  • Understand the good and the bad in ourselves and others

  • Grow into greater emotional and spiritual maturity

With fascinating case studies and helpful techniques we can start using immediately, Changes That Heal reminds us that God promises to complete his good work in us.
