I've been asked to give a 360 review of my manager. I'm to assign a numeric rating to a number of criteria, and explain my choice. The last two sections are strengths and weaknesses. What do I do? Do I try to honestly answer the weaknesses question, bring up trivial weaknesses, or sidestep the question altogether and say I'm not in a position to evaluate their weaknesses.
I have heard Mark mention in the podcast that a DR is not really in the best position to provide feedback on their manager. It just seems really dangerous to me to start talking about my manager's weaknesses.
