Sensitive and Delicate When you submit your resignation letter it will have implications for you the organization you are leaving and the colleagues and friends you are leaving behind. You must realize that regardless of the real reasons behind your departure the message received by many will be that youre leaving because the organization and/or people just dont measure up any more. This is a natural human reaction for many people and cant be entirely avoided. Just be sensitive to it and dont say do or write anything that unnecessarily aggravates such feelings of abandonment.
Simple Formality or Big Surprise A resignation letter can simply be the formalization of a conversation that already took place with your boss or an announcement you made in a meeting. On the other hand a resignation letter can be tendered completely unannounced as a total surprise. In fact this is often the case in the real world. If this latter case applies in your situation you will have to be prepared to deal with any one of a number of possible reactions from the organization and your colleagues ranging from total acceptance to anger bargaining and resentment. Positive Beats Negative The way in which you resign from an organization can have significant implications both career-wise and personally. Regardless of the circumstances and/or atmosphere surrounding your departure you will be well-advised to take whatever measures you can to neutralize any negative factors that may be in play.
