What is an appropriate gift for a manager (soon to be mentor) that has been instrumental towards several incredible / unexpected opportunities for me?
Recently my manager has "gone to bat" for me on several occasions and provided me with some great exposure to the senior leadership team to help showcase my abilities. The output of these situations, and my performance, has led to several incredible opportunities for me. The most significant of these opportunities are:
· A new role / promotion within the larger team
· The company providing significantly more financial support towards my MBA on top of the "normal" company support
He does not expect this gift but I really want to let him know how much I appreciate what he has done for me. Whatever the gift is, it will be supplemental to a hand-written thank you note (the “manager-tools” way of course).
Thank you all for your support and recommendations.
