Communication Strategy with Managers

To build a communication strategy with managers, ask your managers these 4 questions when you start a new job. This will set you up for having excellent communication with your manager.

How often do they want to connect?

How should you update them on your progress?

What type of problems do they want you to handle?

What type of problems does your manager need to give you input on?


Use this manager communication template to bring with you at weekly or monthly meetings. You can also send this an email to update your manager when you have a missed meeting.
