Hand back the role in a better place…

We are all just merely stewards in our role, managing and co-ordinating waiting for the next person to takeover.  We are custodians for a short period, the new owners of your role or business can quite feasibly turn it upside down.

Years ago I left a job and my boss said make sure you leave with them wanting more, go out on a high.  If we are just stewards holding a role until new shoes come in, we need to make sure we leave it in a really fantastic state.

Hand back the role in a better place than when you took over the stewardship.  Steer it to greatness and leave a legacy that is right for the role.

Top tips for leaving a job:-

  • Clear processes and systems written down
  • Clear goals and targets
  • Personable handover of team – social connection
  • Bios of team members
  • Clear desk (it says more than you think) no-one wants to find a stale apple core in your draw
  • Plan of meetings to attend
  • Planner or schedule
