You can resign differently: the authors of the Harvard Business Review, for example, identified seven dismissal styles - from the widespread “according to all the rules” (the employee speaks about everything in advance, clearly identifying the reason) and “grateful” (the employee helps the company to cope with the transition period) to “impulsive” (the employee simply doesn’t come to the office once) and “burning bridges” (in addition, the person tries to annoy the organization).
