Just resigned? Don’t check out yet!

Have you resigned and have you mentally checked out of your current role? DON’T!

I’ve seen firsthand how pivotal this transition period can be.

It’s all too easy to mentally check out and let standards slip, but it’s precisely during these moments that your professionalism needs to shine at its brightest.

From ensuring a seamless handover to offering assistance wherever needed, every action counts.

Why does it matter? Because leaving on a sour note can sour relationships and even impact future references.

In our interconnected world, bridges burned today may block your path tomorrow.

So, what should you do instead? Here are some tips on how to handle your resignation period

  • Maintain open lines of communication with your soon-to-be-former colleagues and managers.
  • Tie up loose ends and complete outstanding tasks to the best of your ability.
  • Offer to train your replacement or provide detailed handover notes to ensure a smooth transition.
  • Express gratitude for the opportunities and experiences gained during your tenure.
  • Leave a positive legacy by showcasing your dedication and commitment until your last day.
