GLS2013 Session 3 – Henry Cloud – Reversing the death spiral of a leader


Henry Cloud’s biblical wisdom and psychological insight is always a great combination.  In this session Henry looks at how we as leaders can get our heads in a real mess and end up in what he calls a death spiral.  These occur when we find ourselves in situations that we feel we can’t control and when we make assumptions that are not true.  Henry helpfully shows us how this happens and then give us a tool to turn it around.
