Tips for thanking your boss

  • Tip #1: If your boss sends you an appreciation email or tells in person, a simple reply of “Thank You” may be enough. The examples below will be longer messages as I imagine different situations when a boss may express appreciation.
  • Tip #2: Don't make unfavorable comparisons to other bosses. For example, don’t write, "You are so much better than John as a boss."
  • Tip #3: Be specific, if there was something specific that you want to thank the boss for. The examples below are based on hypothetical situations, so if you can be more specific, your note may be perceived as better (you can also download my How to write a better thank-you note guide). In the examples, words like project, process, program, or position, could be replaced with what is relevant for your situation.
  • Tip #4: Read through all of the examples for inspiration. If you are copying and pasting into an email, you could combine bits for different examples.

Thank You Note to Boss

thank you for the boss

Memorable Ways to Thank Your Boss 

It’s a myth about bosses that they’re bad. Few bosses are incredibly kind and help you succeed in life. Moreover they mentor you not only in your work, but in your life as well. So, if you have a boss like that, you would definitely love to thank him with all your heart. What would you do? Would you try to charm him with some gifts? Or will you cook some food that he absolutely loves to eat? Or you will help him with the presentation he is not getting time to make? No matter what you choose to do, the first thing is your intention. If you intend to give back something, you should do it in such a way that stands out and makes your boss feel top of the world.

In this article, we will give you some ideas to impress your boss. No, it’s not to butter your boss to be likeable rather it’s a genuine gratefulness which you feel for your boss. If you have any idea about getting something back from him and you think thanking him for that reason is mandatory, drop the idea right now. Only if you have genuine thankfulness the following creative ways will help you succeed. The idea is to make him feel like million dollars.

Let’s get started.

Send a thank you note

This is a great way to say thank you if you don’t want to say to your boss directly. Simply wait till your he leaves. Take a piece of paper and make an arrangement for a cover. Write a genuine thank you note. You can write like –

You made a real difference in the way I work and live my life. I know I can’t thank you enough by saying anything. But I’m deeply grateful for your contribution in my career and in life. Thank you!

With gratitude,

(Your name)

This simple gesture will create a havoc impact. When he will come next day and read this, think how he will feel? he will feel like top of the world and at the same time you will feel excellent.

Take more responsibility

If you feel shy about sending thank you note, you can do something else too. You can take some of his work which he is struggling with and can help him complete the task on time. But make sure while doing extra work for him, your own work shouldn’t be hampered. Trying to help your boss is okay, but not before you finish your task. First, finish off your project or work. Then if you get time, simply go to your boss and say – “Hey, I have done with my work. I have some free time. Can I do something to ease up your day?” It’s great to do this kind of work. But make sure that you are not taken for granted. It shouldn’t be like that that as you said it once, your boss will keep on pressurizing you to do the extra work all the time in future as well. It has a lot to do with the character of your boss. If he is one of those who are taskmasters, you should avoid this tactic as it may backfire and after you do this, every day you need to sit at office till night to finish off your work and extra work of your boss. If you feel grateful for the contribution of him in your life, there’s other ways you can thank him too.

Find out what your boss is passionate about and do something about it

If he is fond of books, you can take one of the best books of the year and gift it to your boss. But make sure what sort of book it is. So, know the choice of your boss. If he likes literary fiction, you can’t present him crime thrillers. To keep things safe, if you don’t know what he like, buy a business book of your domain and you can present the book to your boss. Inside, on the top of the first blank page, write a thank you note for your boss. There’s a downside to it as well. If he is someone who is very honest and firm about his character, he may perceive it as a bribe. So make sure that you don’t slack in your work. You’re sending your boss book and in office you’re wasting time. Don’t do that. As we have already mentioned in the beginning, it’s all about the intention. If you really feel that you are grateful, then only say thank you in different ways. Don’t expect any reward for saying thank you to him. Do it because you want to, not because you have something to achieve through it. And you can prove it by being ethical at work even after saying thank you.

Help one person

Image source:

This is a great concept. Instead of saying thank you to your boss, you can do something else. To pass on the contribution to your boss, help one in need. And when s/he says thank you, ask her/him to do the same.

It’s a great way to spread goodness. It’s a goodness cycle. Imagine about your work place. What if everyone helps someone in need? It would become a great place. So, just go out and help someone else and ask him to do the same. If everyone follows it, the whole work environment would be something that people will love to come in every day instead of whining or bitching.

Do this favour to him. Help someone in need instead of saying thank you.

Arrange a small meeting to say thank you to your boss

You don’t need to do something drastic. You can arrange a meeting where people will share only who they are thankful to in office. It’s a different concept. Arrange a meeting after work hours so the work is not hampered by any way. Ask your team members to join in and discuss about this with him.

Then invite everyone to come on dais and express their gratitude to the person (in office) to whom they feel most grateful. And when your turn comes, you can talk about him. This is a great way to create an environment where helpfulness will be openly celebrated.

By arranging this sort of meeting, you’re not only able to say thank you to him, rather you’re able to create opportunities for your colleagues and peers to say thank you to people (in office) they’re most grateful for.

Do ordinary things well

You always don’t need to do extraordinary things to say thank you. Rather you can keep on doing the fundamentals so well that your boss becomes happy. You’re thinking of saying ‘thank you’ to him. But rather than saying ‘thank you’, why not simply do what he taught you well, day in and day out? Becoming something more than you were is also a present to your boss. If you can simply do your work, improve your knowledge about what you do and create an impact on the things that matter, your boss will not only be happier, but he will feel grateful for having such an employee like you.

Work on the fundamentals and keep things simple. We assure you that he will be impressed.

Emulate the success principle your boss taught you

Why you feel so thankful to your boss? Is it because he has taught you something that’s incredible? Is it because he practices something that you love to practice? Or is it something you that makes you feel worthwhile again? The reason you’re feeling thankful can also be the effect.

Simply find out what you like about him and emulate that quality. Practice it whenever you find the opportunity. Don’t worry about the result in the beginning. You may fail initially. Adjust your sail and then try again. Practising what your boss taught you is a great way to say thank you. It doesn’t need words or verbal appreciation. Simply emulate and practice and you don’t need to say a word to your boss.

Cook for your boss

Image source:

Let’s say that you’re a very good cook and you can cook varied delicious foods. So, you can think to offer your expertise to say thank you to your boss. Simple arrange a lunch with your team members or invite your team members including your boss at your place and you can cook lunch or dinner. And you can personally say to your boss that his contribution made a great impact in your life.

Even if you’re not a great cook, you can cook one part of the meal and can order the rest and invite your boss and your team members in lunch or dinner.

Saying thank you is often a matter of being creative. If you say thank you while serving delicious food, nothing can match it.

Solve a problem for your boss

Your boss is always solving problems. Some are big, some are petty. You can take time and find out what bothers your boss more. And then take action to solve that problem. Simply take a piece of paper and write down the problem your boss is facing in bold letters. Now brainstorm and find out ways and make a list of things to do. Start doing one thing at a time. And see whether it’s helping your boss or not. If not, go to next and do something else.

For example, let’s say your boss is not able to manage his emails with ease. You can gift him book/s on efficient management of email or you can talk about software/app which eases up email issues. Now, finding a problem which your boss is not able to handle can often backfire. Make sure that your boss is open to new ideas and won’t take your help as something else.

Simply take permission from your boss before presenting your idea to your boss. If he allows you to share your ideas with him, then only share and take initiative. Before doing anything, you need to know who he is as a person. If you’re new in the office, take some time to figure out before doing something like this.

Talk good about your boss behind his back

Most people spread rumours this way. They talk about people behind their back. They gossip about what people did wrong. You can use this simple process to pay back for the contribution your boss had in your life. Simply make a point to talk about him when anyone talks about him. Say something like – “Yes, he is terrific. I learned a lot from him.” But make it genuine. It shouldn’t be something that you do when you try to butter someone. If you do it for some time, your boss will get to know about it and he will feel good internally.

You want to say thank you to your boss because first you want to express your gratitude to him and at the same time you want your boss to feel happy. If you create reputation behind his back, then both of your purposes will be achieved and everything will fall in place without much effort.

The above are the ways you can say ‘thank you’ to your boss. But there are thousands more, even millions. You just need to be creative. You can use one of the above ideas and implement and see how it works. If it doesn’t work, go to next and try out. Or simply jot down new ideas when you have them and say ‘thank you.’ You can use the same not to thank your boss only, but you can say ‘thank you’ to anyone who you think made your life better. And once you begin to say ‘thank you’, life will pause in front of you and will offer you more opportunities to say ‘thank you.’ Make it a habit. Say thank you, not only in words, but also through using different ideas. And you will see your professional life will transform before your eyes.
