Objective

Any sensible leader has a strategy for their line manager. It is about understanding, agreeing and managing expectations. What a boss will want is no different from what you will want from your own direct reports:

  • clear and honest communication on agreed issues;
  • early warnings of potential issues relating to performance, risk and reputation;
  • regular information delivered to agreed timetables;
  • delivery of agreed operational targets.
