12 Things We’d Tell Our Boss if We Could 08-30-2011

“I truly need frequent feedback.” Please don’t wait till the year-end performance review. I can do a better job for you if you let me know what I’m doing wrong, and what I’m doing right, on a regular basis.”

The preceding quote is from the latest “DFS Learning e-Blast” article, “12 Things We’d Tell Our Boss if We Could”, by Karen Burns.

In this June 16, 2010 article on Yahoo Finance, the author provides a series of points your subordinates might make with you if they could, and of course what you might want to say to your boss.

If you are a leader, think about whether you are leveling with your boss as well as providing an environment of trust and open dialogue for your subordinates.   As leaders we’re all bosses, and we’re all subordinates.  Read from both perspectives to get the most out of this article.

More from the article:

Of course, not all employees feel free to say what they’re actually thinking. You know who you are! That’s why in today’s column, the employees of the world get to speak up. What would you say to your boss if you could say absolutely anything at all? This is your chance, people.”
