Also, give facts—not opinions—and do not repeat hearsay. Only mention things you personally heard or saw. Avoid making recommendations even if asked what the boss could do to improve performance. Most bosses prefer to believe subordinates like and respect them. Anything negative you say could become a problem for you later.
