From the White House, to the board room, to the privacy of our own bedrooms, and virtually everywhere in between, integrity deficits are destroying our personal lives, our businesses, our economy, our healthcare, our society, and our planet.
Creating sustainable integrity-centered solutions to today’s vast array of major challenges requires us, as individuals and as a society, to take a fresh look at what creates life fulfillment. It requires us as citizens to develop a new integrity-centered vision of what we need to require from our leaders in government, business, advocacy groups, community organizations and the media.
The New IQ is the world’s first road-tested guide to integrity-centered living, working, loving, and serving. Hailed as a “once-in-a-generation book,” it provides the first step-by-step road map for restoring the vanishing virtue of integrity… for the sake of our loved ones, our communities, our businesses, our society, and our own personal well being.
Going far beyond being a self-help book, this critically acclaimed five-award-winning action plan offers a socially responsible way to attain personal, relationship, and career fulfillment during difficult times, without sacrificing ethics and integrity. Here at last is your complete guide to “personal development that serves us all.”
David Gruder, PhD, DCEP, is perhaps the world’s only clinical-organizational psychologist specializing in integrity development. Known as “The Integritizer,” he is the leader in transpartisan nondenominational strategies for solving the massive integrity deficits that have caused today’s vast social, economic, and political challenges. Dr. Gruder founded the “Integritize America Campaign,” an integrity stimulus plan for renewing personal, relationship and societal integrity so we can finally co-create sustainable solutions to today’s most challenging issues. His latest book, “THE NEW IQ: How Integrity Intelligence Serves You, Your Relationships and our World,” is the world’s first step-by-step guide to attaining personal, relationship, and career fulfillment during difficult times without sacrificing ethics and integrity. It has won five book awards in the areas of “social change,” (book of the year), “current events in politics and society” (honorable mention), “health & wellness” (book of the year), “self-help” (bronze medal) and “metapsychology” (book of the year). A professional speaker and trainer for almost three decades, Dr. Gruder speaks, trains, consults worldwide on how to “Integritize” citizens, government, communities, businesses, health care, education, religion, journalism, advocacy groups, and leadership. His clients have ranged from family-owned businesses to American Express work teams, from the Sanoviv Medical Institute to the San Diego Office of Education Management Academy, and from local politicians and executives to World Trade Organization ambassadors.

We All Know Lack of Integrity Is Rampant Today in All Parts of the World: Our massive integrity problems have been caused by massively distorted ideas about what creates fulfillment. The most powerful path for restoring integrity thus starts with understanding what creates true and lasting fulfillment.
* You Were Born with Three Core Drives: 1) Authenticity is your innate drive to be who you truly are. 2) Connection is your innate drive to bond with others. 3) Impact is your innate drive to influence the world around you.
* Do You Really Value Integrity? True authenticity requires self-integrity. Nourishing, productive and durable connection requires relationship integrity. Positive impact requires societal integrity: integrity with the collectives of which you are a part, from your own family to the earth itself. Those who truly value integrity become good at making personal choices, and co-creating solutions with others, that simultaneously serve “we,” “me” and “us all.” This is 3D Integrity: the only sustainable path to a fulfilling future for us as individuals, for our relationships, for our society, for humanity as a whole, and for our planet.
* Is There a Reliable Path to Integrity-Centered Fulfillment? Over his twenty-five years as a clinical and organizational psychologist, Dr. David Gruder’s psychotherapy and leadership mentoring clients taught him an incredibly important secret: Those who naturally attain high levels of integrity-centered fulfillment intuitively develop seven very specific life skills called WisePassions, in place of the automated survival habits they developed as children and carried into adulthood. Based on having learned how to successfully teach these WisePassions to thousands of others in keynotes, classes, workshops, and staff training programs, The New IQ book and workbook show YOU how to create integrity-centered life fulfillment while also inspiring integrity in the world around you.
