Foster Personal and Professional Growth.
While endings are a natural part of business and life, we often experience them with a sense of hesitation, sadness, resignation, or regret. But consultant, psychologist, and best-selling author Dr. Henry Cloud sees endings differently. He argues that our personal and professional lives can only improve to the degree that we can see endings as a necessary and strategic step to something better. If we cannot see endings in a positive light and execute them well, he asserts, the "better" will never come, either in business growth or our personal lives.
In this insightful and deeply empathetic book, Dr. Cloud demonstrates that, when executed well, "necessary endings" allow us to proactively correct the bad and the broken in our lives in order to make room for the professional and personal growth we seek. However, when endings are avoided or handled poorly - as is too often the case - good opportunities may be lost, and misery repeated.
Drawing on years of experience as an executive coach and a psychologist, Dr. Cloud offers a mixture of advice and case studies to help listeners:
- Know when to have realistic hope and when to execute a necessary ending in a business or with an individual
- Identify which employees, projects, activities, and relationships are worth nurturing and which are not
- Overcome people's resistance to change and create change that works
- Create urgency and an action plan for what's important
- Stop wasting resources needed for the things that really matter
Knowing when and how to let go when something, or someone, isn't working - a personal relationship, a job, or a business venture - is essential for happiness and success. Necessary Endings gives listeners the tools they need to say good-bye and move on.

Absolutely brilliant work.
We all go through endings in our lives, whether we initiate them or experience them from being initiated from outside ourselves, and this book is very helpful in negotiating the necessity of those endings.
