An interview is presented with psychologist and business consultant Dr. Henry Cloud, who discusses his book "Integrity:The Courage to Meet the Demands of Reality." Cloud discusses the importance of character in a corporate work setting, and elaborates on traits such as honesty, trust and courage. Integrity is discussed in some detail, as well as the need for business leaders to lose well, and drop projects, contacts and other pursuits once they have failed. It is suggested that success needn't come at the price of emotional and mental health. INSET: Courage, Reality, and the Workplace: What the Master Said.
