Its time we make ourselves and our work noticeable even during this phase.Dropping a few truth bombs and tips to deal with it wisely.Its okay to be excludedYou may notice that you may be excluded from certain calls taking place around you, skipped from being marked on mails or in receiving meeting invites. There will be a constant feeling gnawing at you throughout this phase; FOMO (fear of being missing out) in millennial vocabulary. This has happened to all of us, so, it is wise to nip it in the bud.

Make sure you help out the team or your colleagues with a proper handover, provide inputs/suggestions in ongoing projects, offer to train them on new projects, and give clarity on unfinished projects (defining objectives, setting expectations etc).A window to learn relearn skill setsInstead of mindlessly scrolling through our social media feeds or sharing memes, take this opportunity to brush up your skills and learn new things. You can enroll in a e-learning course, make time for a long overdue session of reading up/researching, revisiting your work and reflecting over it, and addressing areas of development.Time is of the essenceMake sure all your ongoing projects are wrapped up and submitted as per the timelines (during your presence). Ensure that the handover process is recorded properly and clearly explained to the concerned individual or team.Make your future intentions be subtly knownDownplay your excitement of quitting as the decided day nears.
