Hi, I would like to seek advice on how to work on the feedbacks that my boss gave me.
Some background information: before entering consulting, I worked in business development. Part of the reason my boss hired me is because my strength in BD skills and people skills (she still acknowledges people skill is my stregth now). I have joined the firm for 5 months and one piece of advice my boss gave me is that my communication or report writing should be more "concise and to the point".
I think one of the problem is that I'm not so comfortable switching between being "sociable" and "business sharp". Since I haven't presented to client, the feedback is based on the daily interaction when working on projects with her. My boss also said sometimes I express too much details, including oral communication and email. My reasoning is because I would like to keep everyone in the loop on the same page. Although I have tried to use the pyramid structure to write the emails, but my boss thinks that email content is sometimes too lengthy, and should be concise and simple.
Could you please share on some advice, experience, or actionable suggestions so that I could make my overall daily communication "concise and to the point"? Thanks a lot!
