Give the Boss what they Need

Whenever you give your boss information, think carefully about what they need. Now what you think they need.

Ask the questions first : What will they do with the info? Pass it along? Make a decision? Are they detail oriented or high level? How well do they know the topic?

If you aren't sure, ask. And always get feedback after you provide information and adjust your approach the next time.

Once you know what they need and what they will do with it, you can prioritize information and put it into a format, structure, context and even the length that meets their needs. You may even be able to put together a quick template for one or more specific issues or situations.

This can make it easier for you to put the information together and will certainly make it easier for your boss to use it effectively.

You'll look good. Trust me.
