Product Description

Review

“Through specific strategies for ending things well, Cloud advocates for powerful personal changes...and will give many readers the fresh start they crave.” (Publishers Weekly)

“If you’re hesitant to pull the trigger when things obviously aren’t working out, Henry Cloud’s Necessary Endings may be the most important book you read all year.” (Dave Ramsey, New York Times bestselling author of The Total Money Makeover)

“Much of what we do each day is an unnecessary waste of time and energy. This book will challenge you put a stop to things that have been getting in your way for a long time.” (Tom Rath, bestselling author of Strengths-Based Leadership)

“Having written five books about the seasons of life, I can tell you that necessary endings are the hard part. Henry Cloud is a wise, experienced, and compassionate guide through these turbulent passages.” (Bob Buford, bestelling author of Halftime and Finishing Well; founder, Leadership Network)

From the Back Cover

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.

Dr. Cloud as always has amazing insights so practical for everyday life; without which people flounder and sometimes for many wasted years. I hope many people will take in and practice the Necessary Endings and experience the results of the very productive lives it promises.

The ephemeral nature of human relationships haunts many of us. Dr Cloud leads you to some remarkable insights that ease your conscience as well as coping strategies to help you navigate beyond the loss. Rich with illustrations the author writes with compassion and skill. As a physician and counsellor I would highly recommend this work for the sensitive, reticent reader. There is a time for mourning and a time to move on.

The main weakness is the lack of any structure by which we can approach "necessary endings". Rather we are given what amounts to somewhat vague examples, and somewhat patronizing advice throughout. Other than reinforcing the fact that sometimes you need to face reality and end something, rather than continuing on in a futile cause, I didn't get much out of this one.
