I have been with my organization for almost 21 years. I let my CEO know that I plan to move and take a new HR role in Seattle by 6/30. She is worried that my departure will be hard for our staff and community so she offered me a sabbatical to help with my transition to a new city. Her thought is that my sabbatical would ease my departure over time. She would like to have me consult for at least 6 months after I leave. Has anyone ever experienced something like this? How did it work?

Given that you’ve been with your organization for over 2 decades, I can imagine you feel a lot of loyalty.

I’ve transitioned roles before, and been asked to stay longer to manage the shift. I eventually set a hard boundary at three months (two months longer than I’d intended) and I grew resentful of my initial employer, honestly, as I felt stymied in shifting into my new role at my new company. There’s my caution for you.

I wonder why you’re leaving? If your company wasn’t giving you what you needed, why are they so adamant they need you now?

How can you take agency in this situation in a way that feels satisfying to you?

My hope is that you put your own needs first.

I agree - I think paid consulting would be a nice bridge personally, but it depends on what you need

I have not experienced this, but I don't think I would feel comfortable committing to 6 months of consulting past my departure.

This was kind of my thought as well. I don't think I would do that either.
