Resigning isn’t easy. But at some point, you have to rip the band-aid off.

At some point, you have to rip the band-aid off.

There’s only one way to manage it.

Rationalizing a kinder, softer, gentle resignation process is just a way for people to avoid their fear of confrontation, their fear of being judged as a “quitter” or a fear of being rejected.

Get over it.

It doesn’t have to be messy.  It doesn’t have to be complicated.  It doesn’t have to be tearful or emotional nor do voices need to be raised.

It just needs to be done.

How to resign

Landscape * to a new job

Keep it short, simple and on point.

It’s been great working with you.  I’ve appreciated everything you’ve taught me and I’m extremely grateful for ALL the experience I’ve accumulated in my time working with you and the company.

It’s time for me to move on.

I’ve decided to take my skills and take them to a company where I can leverage what I’ve learned here  and continue to grow.

I’m confident in my decision and am excited to start on a new path.

I hope you understand – I’ve spent a lot of time and taken a lot of counsel from close associates.

I’ve made my decision.

I understand this might put you and the team in a bad spot temporarily.

The timing is right for me to move on and take advantage of this opportunity.

That’s it…..short and sweet, simple and to the point.
