Do you chafe when asked to give reports to your boss?

Paul, when returning from a mission trip, promptly "reported in detail" (Acts 21:19 NIV) to the elders the results of the trip.

When asked to report on an issue or project, be prompt, concise, and complete. An effective report accomplishes three key things. 1) You are forced to review your progress. 2) Management is apprised of the progress toward a goal. 3) Your efforts can be redirected if necessary before any additional work is wasted. Outline challenges and obstacles in your way, and don't be afraid to ask for help. Make reports your allies!
