Today was a difficult day. It was really no different than any other work day except for the fact that I had to say goodbye.

What’s the big deal you might ask – we say goodbye every day. Well, today I was saying goodbye to my current team at work. I am transitioning to another role in the organisation and will have a new team.

I’ve really gotten to know these people over the last 18 months and I care for them very much. They were put under my care so to speak and I take that seriously. They are all managers of manager too, and leaders in their own right. But I view them almost as my family.

We have shared a lot over the past year and a half. We’ve had good times and we’ve had not so good times. But I leave knowing that what we’ve built together will endure and continue to be built upon.

They will always hold a special place in my heart. I wish them continued success. And so it is hard to say goodbye to them.
