Can We Be “Gracious” During Farewells?
9 DEC , 2015
I am a big fan of Virender Sehwag. But his recent farewell speech got me to reflect on the unsaid part of his speech, yes’ he missed thanking Dhoni, maybe he forgot as he had many people to thank, he was on mike in front of cameras, anxiety maybe? It was difficult to reconcile with any of the arguments as we have heard/read about the frosty relationship between Dhoni and Sehwag.
I still believe these rumors that they don’t like each other (Gossip) 🙂 Sports Icons have once in a lifetime farewells and are likely to be in spotlight for the wrong reasons on their farewell timing or speeches. In workspaces we have more opportunities for farewell speeches; the high rate of job changes we see around tells me that each one of us may have at least 10 farewell opportunities in our career life; which means we can always improvise on our farewell speeches and get better at it with every changing employer.
