Dr Henry Cloud has sold ten million books by serving up basic tutorials in how to treat others in business and personal life, and if you find his material in his presentations and in his latest 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 (Harper) – rather simplistic and obvious – do we really need to be told that other people have a significant effect on us? – it may be a reflection of the parlous state of human relations in this hypercompetitive, hypermaterialistic, hyperelectronic society, in which we are leading the world into the ever expanding virtual reality we find down the smartphone rabbit hole, day by day ever further away from the concrete personal reality of direct face to face communication, when we ourselves and our kids are increasingly at a loss how to navigate it with any skill, and the simple verities that Dr Cloud teaches are certainly the answer for many who have never been taught them in school or later, even as they become the leaders of business that he claims among his clients.I am writing to invite you to a special, live webcast recording with Dr. Henry Cloud—psychologist, leadership consultant, coach, and New York Times bestselling author—to mark the May 3rd publication of his latest 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 (HarperBusiness, an imprint of HarperCollins, $27.99). The event will be held on Thursday, April 28 from 1-4PM est at the Farm SOHO (447 Broadway).
A familiar face and voice to millions of readers, TV viewers, and radio listeners, Dr. Cloud—co-author of the bestselling Boundaries series—has written over 40 books and sold more than 12 million books worldwide, is a frequent guest on national news programs, and has a syndicated radio show that airs in over 200 markets.
During the event Dr. Cloud will be interviewing Navy SEAL and bestselling author Rorke Denver (Damn Few: Making the Modern SEAL Warrior) about the power of the other as it relates to individual success and former SVP of Culture at Southwest Airline Ginger Gardage about how relationships define corporate culture.
Dr. Cloud’s newest book, The Power of the Other, represents a profound shift in the conversation around leadership, growth, and high performance. Informed by Dr. Cloud’s life’s work as a clinical psychologist and acclaimed business and leadership expert, The Power of the Other uncovers the emotional, intellectual, and neurological impact of relational connectedness—and suggests that one’s personal limits can be surpassed only through a close examination of the relationships in one’s life. Given Dr. Cloud’s popular following and publishing history, we anticipate The Power of the Other to be an instant bestseller.
Please let me know if you would be interested in attending this exclusive event and interviewing Dr. Cloud. I also would be happy to send an advance copy of the galley your way as well as a “sizzle reel” of Dr. Cloud’s recent broadcast media appearances to get a better sense of him in action. Thank you in advance for your consideration and I look forward to hearing back from you.
