Just Follow This Scientifically-Proven Plan And You’ll Be A Step Away From Giving A send –off speech to your loving superior -who's leaving, retiring or on transfer-without trying so hard!
Does This Man Sounds Like A Sage?
I don’t know what you think about that.
But, if your boss leads by example, then you will agree with what the wiseman said.
You see, a good manager does more than manage his team of employees.
He or she is like a mother, father, sister, brother, brother sister, and a good role model to everyone in the office and even beyond.
If you’re blessed to have such a person in charge of your team, then I can only imagine how your office is like.
Of course, there are a lot of lessons you can learn from mean bosses too.
So, just pay close attention whatever a good or a not-so-good boss does and you will have richer professional experience.
A bird just whispered in my ears that your kind boss will be leaving the company soon. Oh my God! Too bad! I wish he could stay longer!
But who am I to stop him from going for greener pastures or retirement.
This Is The Best Gift You Can Ever Give Your Boss
I know for sure your superior has impacted your life so much and you are probably thinking of getting him a heartwarming gift. That’s very kind of you.
But, did you that this is the best gift you can ever give?
What’s that Dan? Your farewell speech!
Got any idea how to do that? Well, I am here this sunny afternoon to help you do justice to your parting words for your boss.
Last time, we looked at what I felt was a good example of a sendoff you can use.
What I didn’t show you was how to easily get the right words and ideas to help you put down your exact thoughts and emotions without trying so pulling out your hair!
So, don’t worry if you don’t have the skill or talent for writing speeches, your wonderful supervisor deserves the very best and I promise to help you say some very kind and touching words about him or her.
Get This Right Before You Give It A Shot!
Often times, we let the shadows of the past become a hurdle to new opportunities.
Perhaps you failed to give an impressive speech sometime past and you’re just wondering if you can put up a good show this time around.
Well, you can. You can if you see good things coming out of your impending performance.
The fact that you screwed up when you are asked to present a report doesn’t mean you are going to be a terrible speaker.
All you have to do is to constantly see yourself in your mind’s eye giving an amazing speech to the admiration of the audience.
As you continuously hold that mental picture, you will be empowered from within and you will be empowered to speak with purpose and clarity.
Now, go grab your pen and sheet and let’s get started with our original plan.
The first thing you have to do is to …
First Put Yourself In The Mood
By looking up farewell speech for boss videos and the like, you will get ideas that you can use for your message.
So, go to any of the video sharing platforms and put your search term above or its variants in the search bar and wait for hundreds of such videos to pop up.
Watch a couple and see which words and ideas you want to use.
Put down as many as you can because you never know which one might help you in the long run.
The second thing you have to do is to…
Work With J…s
Do you have any idea what I mean exactly? Jokes!
Going for puns is by far the best way to get your skills and talents noticed.
If your superior is the serious type, please stay off it unless you find a joke that really appeals to him or her or even the entire team.
By the way, make sure that your pick is in sync with the tone and theme of your parting address.
Below Is a Perfect Example of What I Mean
Let me illustrate by using an excerpt of the farewell speech of the first black of the United States President Barack Obama…please take a closer look at the underlined words
This is what he said: Hello Chicago! It's good to be home! Thank you everybody. Thank you so much, thank you, thank you. Alright, everybody sit down. We're on live TV here, I gotta move. You can tell that I'm a lame duck, 'cuz nobody's following instructions. Everybody have a seat.
Seen those underlined words? Yes, that’s exactly what I mean when I tell you to use a joke.
Suppose we want to make something out of that, it would go like this.
''For over 20 years now, Mr. Adam has been the chief robot(probably a term for workers in his office) in Gild& Son’s, today he’s the lame duck because he can’t get anyone to follow his instructions…not even the coffee machine is ready to pump out some coffee for him this morning!''
Got it now?
The third thing you have to do is to
A good story has the power to hold the attention of the audience and make them listen to you.
Grab a paper and put down any fond memories or what the experience has been like working with your superior.
You might also answer any of these 12 and use it as a starting point for your message.
12 Must-Answer Questions And You Will Write Something Great
- What lessons have you learned from him/her?
- How has he or she inspired you to be a better worker?
- How did you feel when you heard that he/she was leaving for good?
- How does he/she make your team such a lively place
- How would the office be like without him/her around?
- What are his/her accomplishments and how did that motivate you to work harder?
- If you got employed before he/she did, what can you say how you felt the first day you started working there or vice-versa?
- Can you share how you felt when he or she was honored by the board or even given an award or citation?
- What did his/her sense of composure taught you when the firm was going through challenges?
- Why will you miss him/her?

- Do you have embarrassing moments you wish to share and how did he/she make a comeback admiringly?
- Not done a lot. But, what can you personally give him or her as a gift?
Answers to these questions can also form the body of your speech as we saw here the other day.
Here’s My Short Example Though
''When we got news that you were leaving, we thought it was one of those jokes.
I remember Mike saying that can’t be true because he said you don’t have any gray hairs to show you’re getting old.
Then, I quipped that you must be dying your hair because you are a person of great wisdom!
Well, I didn’t believe you were going to leave us so I went to ask Margaret and she confirmed the news.
I could only stand there feeling totally frozen like a deer in the headlights.
My heart missed a lot of beats and banged the wall yelling I would do everything to make you stay a little longer but here we are….but here we are!
You have inspired us to work much harder and one thing that will remain with me is when you told me that family comes first in everything we do.
Believe it or not, my family was falling apart when you said that and your words kept me on my toes
…Mike, I have here a wonderful gift for you and it’s a hair dye…Mike, you are a great looking young man (someone shouts from the crowd…He’s 70 years old!) and I think it should help you look much younger so you…''
I hope you can fill in the blanks as answers to a few of those questions have been used to craft this
