Set up a Meeting with Your Boss

Set up a Meeting with Your Boss

If you want to quit your job, don't tell anyone else at your workplace except your boss. It’s preferable to have a conversation, rather than send an email or text.

It may be tempting to share the news with some of your work friends and colleagues—especially if you’re excited about your new role—but resist.

Prepare What You’ll Say

  • Think about what you will say before you go into the meeting. Short and sweet usually work best.
  • You don’t owe your boss any explanations or indications of your new employer if you do not want to share it.
  • Be prepared for a counteroffer.

Submit a Resignation Letter

  • Contact HR if necessary. This should be a professional transaction, similar to receiving the employment contract before you started working there.
  • Give HR and supervisor feedback about why you're leaving and how they can improve the work culture for future team members and existing employees.
  • Give enough notice to ensure a smooth transition.

Continue to Do Good Work

Put together a solid transition plan and execute at an elite level. The time period between your resignation conversation and your end date should be your best work.

You do not owe anyone any information other than you are leaving. If you choose to disclose where you are going, you may want to wait until you've started working there.

Never Burn Bridges

Your professional network is a great source for future opportunities and how you depart an organization leaves a permanent impression.

Aim to make a positive lasting impression, not only because it's the right thing to do, but also because of boomerang opportunities. You never know what can happen.

Follow Up

Consider emailing your former boss, colleagues, and clients a thank you note.

The gesture is a nice way to close this chapter to thank them for something specific like working on a project together, comment on anything you enjoyed in common outside of work, and give them your contact information in case any questions arise.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.


Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
