I was recently asked by my boss to give feedback, or more accurately ratings, on 18 management competencies (e.g. Action Oriented, Delegation, Planning, and Communication Skills). I am to rate him on each competency as either a S - Strength, E - Effective, N - Needs Improvement or X - Not Able to Assess and to provide comments on why I rated him the way I did.
While my boss and I get along quite well and I believe the request is well intentioned, we have only worked together about a year so I am really not sure of how he will take the feedback. I do believe he could improve in several of the areas but I don't want to seem pretentious in giving him that feedback (he is, after all, the boss).
Thoughts? Comments? Advice?
