While endings are a natural part of business and life, people may experience them with a sense of hesitation, sadness, resignation, or regret. But Dr. Henry Cloud sees endings differently. He argues that the personal and professional lives can only improve to the degree that people can see endings as a necessary and strategic step to something better. If seeing endings in a positive light and execute them well isin't possible, he asserts, the 'better' will never come either in business growth or personal lives. In this book, Dr. Cloud demonstrates that, when executed well, 'necessary endings' allow people to proactively correct the bad and the broken in their lives in order to make room for the professional and personal growth. However, when endings are avoided or handled poorly - as is too often the case - good opportunities may be lost, and misery repeated.
