The work place is an important part of your life. It carries a lot of weight for your physical, psychological and social well-being . Having a boss who makes the work place and work delightful goes a long way to give you a better quality of life.
It does not matter how much you love your job, if your boss is “the devil”, doing your job becomes a herculean task. So, having a boss who makes working beautiful should be appreciated and they should be made to realize that they are doing something right. These messages should convey gratitude towards good bosses.
And even if your boss does not fit that category yet, maybe these messages can make things better.
1: Not many people have the privilege to work under someone as caring and understanding as you. I am grateful for that and if I had to pick a boss again, I definitely will pick you.
2: Mondays are not the best of days to wake up to for most people, including me. One thing that spurs me on though is the thought of working with you.
3: You take away the sting of the new week and replace it with a surge that wills us through the week.
4: I admire the way you put yourself into your work, ensuring that you give your best. Thank you for teaching me to never settle for less.
5: t is such a honor to call you Boss. I am grateful for the chance to work for you.
6: You have every right to give orders, make requests and demand results because you’re the Boss. But, you also deserve the best because you treat your workers right.

8: For every time I try and fail, stumble and fall, I don’t feel it too much because you remind me of the times I do get it right. Thank you for being a huge support.
9: Thank you for overlooking the times I came late to work, times I missed out on deadlines, times I was drooling on my desk instead of working. Thank you for not judging me by those moments but choosing to see the goodness and potential in me.
10: The office has become something close to home, thanks to your ability to create a serene environment for everyone to coexist in. It is little wonder that many of us do not mind putting in extra hours at work.
