A More Senior Manager

professional thank you

If the person you are writing to is more senior than your own line manager, here are a few simple do's and don'ts:

  • DO tell your line manager that you are sending a note (especially if the recipient is your manager's boss!)

  • DO share a copy of the note with your line manager ... this simply courtesy shows you are a truly open team

  • DO be concise ... your boss is busy and will appreciate your thank you note all the more if it is brief and to the point.

  • DO spellcheck!!!

  • DON'T assume the senior manager knows who you are, if you don't normally interact with them and /or you work for a large organisation.

  • DON'T be over familiar and address the 'big boss' by his / her given name, if this is not your company practice
