Managers in general have two primary responsibilities, namely overseeing departmental functions and leading their employees. However, there are many skills and competencies a manager should possess in order to excel at these two vital responsibilities. Giving a manager performance feedback requires an in depth understanding of all the managers duties because it’s important to look at the overall picture, rather than the sum of its parts. The most effective way of giving a manager feedback is through a 360 degree feedback process. Managers will gain an understanding of their key strengths and weaknesses from the process because they get valuable information from each and every one of their colleagues, team leaders and employees.
