Reporting Questions

Guest Post by Bobb Biehl

Once your priorities (measurable problems, goals, opportunities) are clear, these reporting questions will keep you and your team focused on the boulders:


**1. What DECISIONS do you need from me?


**2. What PROBLEMS are keeping you from your priorities?


*3. What PLANS are you making (which haven’t been discussed)?


*4. What PROGRESS have you made? (numbers, charts, trends, etc.)


**5. On a scale of 1-100, how are you PERSONALLY?  Why?

(Optional – for Christian organizations)

*6. How can I PRAY for you?


* The areas are best covered in staff meetings

** The areas are best 1:1 or with select team members who are directly affected by the discussion

Ideally, all reports should be on a single page.
