On the day I walked in you gave me a chance, you walked by my side yet didn’t hold my hand. You were my first boss, and that is so true; I am so glad that it was you, today I say goodbye to you boss, and thank you for the job.

Firm but never heavy handed,
You’re more than a boss
You’re a leader, a teacher, a friend
I hope this new journey
Takes you to new heights
And I hope you meet people
As inspiring as you have been to this team
Best wishes in your new venture.

You never made us feel small or unimportant
You empowered us
Challenged us
And pushed us
You led by example
We pushed the envelope and reached higher
Because you made us feel like we could
You made us feel like there was no other choice
Your efforts are greatly appreciated
And you will be sorely missed

You have been patient and kind
Never selfish or dismissive
You made us all feel needed
You made us all feel warm
You are a leader in every sense of the word
Never unfair, always a smile
Your vision unmatched
And your execution always delivered with respect
You lead us with passion and heart
For that, we are forever grateful
We will miss your guiding hand,
but wish you the best in your next adventure

You have been there since the
And you taught me everything I
needed to know about this job
Now I’m leaving for another job
And I just want to thank your for

You were promoted and now you’re
no longer my boss
It is going to be wired not seeing
your face around
But I know you will be fine and I
wish you the best
This is a goodbye until we meet

This is a goodbye my old boss
I got a new job and I won’t be
around any longer
I had a great time working for you
And it’s a shame that I had to
move on
Goodbye my dear boss

I have worked with many but you are
different. You are a great leader
because when you give a task, you
start first, you believe the best in
everyone, you correct in love and
you are a great motivator. For the
records, you are simply the best.

A good leader lives by example and
lives what he says. That I exactly
what you do. You never assign a
work without being a part of it,
you are even usually more involved
than everyone else. You are a great
boss, sad to see you leave.

A leader in which there is no dulling
moment with him. I cherish every
moment I spend with you because
I leave joyous, happy and with all
my problems solved. You are a boss
who is so interested in the well-being
of others. I will miss you so much

You led and we followed,
You guided the way,
This place is a great place,
To work every day.
And now that you’re leaving,
Look what we have achieved,
Your good work will continue,
Because in us you believed.
Good Luck In Your New Job

A leader inspires,
And opens the mind,
Brings the team together,
Leaves the past behind.
But a great leader knows,
When it’s time to move on,
Trusting the team will continue,
When the leader is gone.
Good Luck For The Future, Boss

To be a good leader,
You have to make a choice,
To inspire with passion,
To raise up your voice
To motivate others,
And let them clearly see,
Just how amazing,
They can truly be.
Thank You & Good Luck

As you embark upon the sea, my captain,
I cannot help but feel,
that I have grown into who I am
because of all that you revealed.
A tight ship you ran, to get things done, and worked hard accordingly.
It was your strength and wisdom, sir, that won our victories!

You got me where I am today
and though I’m sad to see you go
I take comfort as I know
that you are off on more adventures
to take on new tasks and new endeavors.
And whoever gets to work with you next
is truly blessed.

Goodbye, dear boss!
O team leader, O chief,
O manager – I’ll stop there
since it doesn’t matter what you’re called
because all these things are intimidating
and after all this time
there is only one name for you:
“My friend.”

Well, boss, it’s been real.
Days of endless customers,
long hours,
planning, meeting,
and now it’s over.
Your motivation has always been
your determination
your skill
and always will be.

We say goodbye today
Not just because you are our boss
But to let you know you will be missed
To let you know that we feel this loss
We wish you good luck for tomorrow
And few times of sorrow

Sense of humor
Sharing your wisdom
And offering us your support
We’ll miss you lots
Now it’s time to go
Time for us to say farewell

And we wish you all the best

We can’t believe your leaving
After all you’ve given us
But we wish you the best in your future
And thank you for all your trust
Can’t wait to watch you succeed

Goodbye and farewell
To a wonderful boss

A boss makes commands
But a leader commands respect
A boss assigns projects
But a leader projects a vision
A boss is a future reference
But a leader is a reference for the future
And as you go into the future
Know that you were never just our boss
But you were always our leader

What do you say to someone
Who turned a staff into a family?
Who turned a job into a joy?
And who is now turning over
A new chapter of their life?
I hope your dreams turn out to be
All you ever wished for
And I hope somebody I’ll turn out to be
Half the boss that you ever were

Working for you was never work
But a job that had the extra perk
Of a boss who always had results
Free of tears or drama or cheap insults
And as you’re leaving and about to go
There’s just one thing you need to know
Because friends and family all agree
Your prime example will always influence me

Through all of these years there’s been a lot I’ve wanted to say
“You should give me more time off, and give me more pay!”
But all in all
At the end of the day
“Thank you” is truly all I can say

It’s been a journey,
One hell of a ride
I’m glad I’ve made it this far,
But now we must leave each other’s side
Thank you for this experience
And all of the memories
The fact that I’ll miss this
Makes me think I’m delirious

Making money is what it’s about
Until you realize you love what you’re doing
The people you’re with and places you’re moving
Thank you for creating a positive office
Keep the team going
I know you’ll rock this
