Friends and foes…..Another year is coming to a screeching halt. So do hasten to rummage through the utility box of management tools and unearth that proverbial Trumpet once more. It’s time to blow it loudly and clearly again… to awaken all our bosses and benefactors. Lets shake up the ones who are feigning sleep and Let us bewilder the ones who are pleading helplessness into submission.
Rack your brain, Clear your throat, take a deep breath and BLOW…… You are permitted to use the below lines for lyrics.
2010 and its million untold challenges…. Paltry budgets…. Horrendous targets, vanishing workforce, nonexistent market….. blah blah
The many pitched battles you (the knight in shining armor) waged and the wars you won….blah blah
The RESULTS… How your graph is taller than the one for 2009. How your graph beats the one posed by your mighty competitors floors down.
And now for the chorus… THANK you Boss. For supporting me through this horrendous ordeal. THANK you Boss…. Thank you for the inspiration, the support, the lessons and above all for being there for me..
Now get back to blowing again.
How has your splendid work contributed to the Organization’s goals. How you have singlehandedly pushed the conglomerate towards its utopian Vision and how your two tiny hands almost realized the Organization’s sketchy Mission. What difference you made….How in dispensable you are.
Back to chorus mode
THANK YOU BOSS for helping me to do all these wonderful things. If it was not for your enthralling leadership, I would also have been like any other employee in this organization. THANK you Boss .Thanks for making me so wonderful.. and see what this has done for our Organization….
Finally, after making sure that every ounce of breath from your lungs has been cajoled out… Put a title to the email/letter. Let it be “ A Million Thanks to the best boss in the company”.
