The farewell speech.

A friend recently sought some thoughts from me on his farewell speech from a place he had worked at for 10 or so years.

I offered the following advice:

  1. Say nice things about everyone – don’t throw a grenade into the cabin as you parachute out
  2. Don’t praise yourself too much
  3. Keep it short
  4. No one will believe a word you say

I saw this from HBR blogs. It us somewhat more eloquent and expansive than what I suggested: HBR Blogs article.
