In a world where job-hopping has become increasingly common and remote work blurs the lines between personal and professional relationships, saying goodbye can be an emotional and complex endeavor. From acknowledging the challenges and rewards of working together to navigating difficult goodbyes, we’ll discuss how to part ways with coworkers and professional networks while preserving relationships and leaving a lasting, positive impression.
This salon was inspired by Jason’s experiences in successfully navigating farewells throughout his career, including a recent one at Facebook / Meta, as well as the broader need for guidance in a world where professional transitions are more frequent. Drawing on insights from business, psychology, and communication, we’ll engage in a stimulating discussion about the best practices for saying goodbye in various professional contexts, the emotional impact of parting ways, and the importance of acknowledging both the positive and negative aspects of our work experiences.
Join us for a thought-provoking conversation about the art of farewell, the challenges of saying goodbye in professional settings, and the strategies for leaving with grace, dignity, and a positive legacy.
