Be Consistent when Briefing Your Boss

Whether you call it a briefing or not, you probably give your boss updates and information about things you're working on, problems, issues or even a heads up on things they might have to deal with.

Instead of doing it ad hoc, develop a one-pager you can use to consistently brief your boss with all the information needed. That includes the background, what the issue is, what the impact of the issue is, risks, response to the issue, possibly from speaking points and solutions of appropriate. Keep it short and concise.

Depending on what you do and what your boss needs, you can create something that specifically meets your boss's requirements with all the information requirements covered.

With a consistent template and headings to follow every time, it will make your job easier and provide a higher quality briefing to your boss.
