Product Description

In Necessary Endings, Dr. Cloud demonstrates that, when done well, "necessary endings" allow people to stop pain, foster growth, reach personal and business goals, and live better lives. When done poorly though, good opportunities are lost, and misery either remains or is repeated. In this new book, Dr. Cloud draws on years of experience as an executive coach and therapist and offers a mixture of advice and anecdotes to give reader the tools they need to begin pruning the bad and the broken from their lives so that the good may begin growing again.

Publisher's Description

End Pain.

Foster Personal and Professional Growth.

Live Better.

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 bestselling 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 readers

  • 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 readers the tools they need to say good-bye and move on.

Publisher's Weekly

Endings are not a tragedy to be first feared and later regretted but a necessary stage on the way to growth, says clinical psychologist and bestselling author of The One-Life Solution. Endings are a crucial way to get what we desire by shedding those things whose time has passed. The author addresses the benefits of concluding unsatisfying work or personal relationships, and he advises readers on diagnosing when the situation can be resuscitated or must be shut down. This "pruning" process can spark readers out of passivity or paralysis, getting them motivated and energized for change. With many examples of people moving on from untenable circumstances and through specific strategies for ending things well, Cloud advocates for powerful personal changes just in time for the New Year, and will give many readers the fresh start they crave.

    Life has many beginnings and many endings. Some endings happen without planning; other endings need to be initiated. Dr. Cloud writes about endings we need to choose in our professional and personal lives and why those endings are necessary. The chapter on "Wise People, Foolish People, and Evil People" is worth the cost of the entire book. Dr. Cloud does an incredible job of equipping the reader in the areas of identifying necessary endings, knowing when and how to negotiate necessary changes in behavior, and following through on decisions to end relationships (when necessary). I consider these to be essential life skills, and Dr. Cloud has covered them well.

    Dr. Cloud provides a unique prespective on the barriers that hinder individuals from bringing final closure to practices and relationships in their lives that need to come to an end. This book is a welcome addition to any professional library.

    I think that this is an excellent premise for a book. The topic is very needed and the way the content is addressed is important. I think that there needs to be a sequel book written titled "Unnecessary Endings." There needs to be a thorough, concise book to address the fact that often Christians, especially in our present culture, end relationships and commitments far too quickly and easily. It's a huge problem that, so often, Christians don't know when to hang in with a relationship and dedicate themselves to working out a problem relationship. There are often wounds and emotions buried deeply (usually from childhood) within many people that hinder them, unknowingly, from being able to stay in and work on painful, troubled relationships. If these wounds were addressed, it could mean the beginning of a new era of healing and healthy relationships for people. This is a lesson that goes so easily unlearned because so many people don't even realize that there is a need to relate differently or that there is another way to live. There is much more hope and promise for relationships than most people realize or understand.

    In the past, I have experienced many necessary endings. Dr. Cloud only confirms what I have found to be true. Many endings are like a snake shedding its old skin - breaking through to new experiences and getting out of ruts. I have always found endings to be new beginnings in disguise - a must in order to get out of our comfort zones and experience God in new ways! Dr. Cloud has no equal in my opinion!
