The transition has begun!
I started training my friend and coworker today to take my place as full time office manager in January.
We spent the morning doing the monthly reports and moving in a new tenant and lots of other job related things. (I had a list.)
It was cool to teach someone else about my job. I know that’s unusual, but it taught me a lot about how to leave a place better than when you came.
Training the next employee is a great way to leave a workplace ready to move forward after you’re gone.
I realize that not everyone has this opportunity. For me, though, it’s my way of giving back. This is what I can do to say thank you to my employers.
Despite what you see in our culture, going to work is a great privilege. Not every job is awesome, but burning bridges as you leave is not a good idea.
I’ve been blessed to only have wonderful bosses. I can only imagine the bad ones I’ve heard about from my friends.
If you’re like me, be sure to thank your employers.
If you have a bad boss, well, try to find at least one nice thing to say. Cling to it like a life boat while you look for employment elsewhere.
