Probably, you have spent many hours pondering on how to tell your boss that you want to leave the organisation. Within these hours of pondering, you must have come out with the perfect details to go about your resignation. You fantasize on leaving your boss high and dry.
Wait a second! Don’t leave your boss high and dry; you need to do it professionally. Leaving your boss high and dry isn’t something that is professional or proper. You don’t have to create enmity, don’t burn bridges as you might decide to change your mind and come back.

No matter your reason of resignation, don’t just stand up one day and leave the office. Ensure that you tender a formal resignation letter where you briefly explain your reason(s) of leaving and clearly state your last day of working. Make it friendly and not as a fight. Thank your boss for his support during your employment even if he was harsh or unfriendly towards you and wish the company well.
