October 23, 2018 Holiday Thanks 2 comments

Не знаю, к чему бы это, только мне все это как-то не нравится. То обстоятельство, что они чуть меня не поймали -- это в городе-то, где все для них, казалось бы, необычно и чуждо,-- свидетельствует, что они вооружены телепатическими способностями.

Я мог бы схватиться с Советом, но тут передо мной какая-то непостижимая угроза, и противостоять ей я не решаюсь. Вот почему я просто предвосхищаю тот шаг, который мне, как я полагаю, все равно пришлось бы сделать по настоянию Совета,-- мне ведь этим уже угрожали. Я отправляюсь туда, где никто уже не может меня настичь и где я пережду любые катаклизмы, какие только могут обрушиться на Диаспар.

You are not alone in enjoying praise and acknowledgment — everyone craves positive attention and feedback, including your boss. So, when your manager does something particularly helpful or meaningful, take the time to say thank you with a letter of appreciation.

It's the nice, polite thing to do, and most likely, your boss will appreciate the gesture. After all, everyone likes to know they are appreciated, and are doing a good job. Even a quick email message works well as a way to let your manager know that his or her support is appreciated.

When to Thank Your Boss

Lends a hand: If your manager offers you resources or help to solve a problem (e.g., a part-time staffer to help on a project, a new piece of technology, or even a joint brainstorming session).

Does a personal favor: Maybe your boss allows you extra leave time or is understanding with days off, even though you're taking them during a busy season. Perhaps your boss connects you with someone in your field who can help further your career, or takes some time to provide you with personal mentorship or advice. 

Gives you a promotion, raise, or bonus: While the extra money or promotion comes from the company's coffers, most likely your boss was instrumental and advocated for you to receive it. 

Provides an opportunity for advancement: It's not only a raise or promotion that deserves appreciation; your boss sets you up for those measures of success by funneling important projects and initiatives in your direction. Without that trust in your abilities, it's harder to show off your talents.

Coordinates a collection for you or a family member: It isn’t unusual for good bosses to “pass the hat” for contributions when an employee experiences either a happy personal event (such as the birth of a child, a wedding, or a graduation) or a sad transition (like the death of a family member). When this happens, it is more than appropriate to send a thank-you note to your boss, along with a request that he or she pass your thanks on to all of those who contributed.

Announces that he or she is leaving either your division or the company: If your boss announces that they are leaving your division (through promotion or reassignment) or is leaving your employer (because of retirement, a new job, or a layoff), this is a wonderful time to write a sincere note that expresses your gratitude for the things they have done for you.

When you’re moving on: Similarly, you may want to send your boss a letter of appreciation when you yourself leave the department, or if you leave the company entirely.

Tips for Writing an Appreciation Note

When you are writing to your boss to express gratitude and appreciation, you have to be careful with your tone. You want to make sure you appear sincere — and not like a sycophant.

In your letter, mention why you're writing and provide a specific thank you. For example, "Thank you so much for organizing my baby shower and for your generous gift," or "I'm so appreciative of this end-of-year bonus."

There's no need to write a lengthy note — keep your message short and to the point. The most important thing is to express your appreciation. Include a complimentary close at the end of your letter, before your name. Proofread carefully.

You can send your note as a handwritten card, printed out letter, or an email. Here are sample appreciation letters and emails to use as inspiration when you write your own thank you letter for your boss.

Tips for thanking your boss

  • Tip #1: If your boss sends you an appreciation email or tells in person, a simple reply of “Thank You” may be enough. The examples below will be longer messages as I imagine different situations when a boss may express appreciation.
  • Tip #2: Don't make unfavorable comparisons to other bosses. For example, don’t write, "You are so much better than John as a boss."
  • Tip #3: Be specific, if there was something specific that you want to thank the boss for. The examples below are based on hypothetical situations, so if you can be more specific, your note may be perceived as better (you can also download my How to write a better thank-you note guide). In the examples, words like project, process, program, or position, could be replaced with what is relevant for your situation.
