Hello,

I need someone's help with the sentence mentioned below:

"Comminicate my performance to my manager"

I am not sure if it is correct. The message that I want to convey is 'let my manager know of my performance'.

Thanks!

    I think "Communicate my performance to my manager" is understandable, but it's unnecessarily formal (though not incorrect). "Let my manager know of my performance" will do nicely.

    The way you've rephrased it in "(Please) let my manager know of my performance" is better than the original. Also, it's important to note that starting with an imperative ("Communicate") makes it sound like a military order or a command from a superior. If you are speaking with a customer or a fellow worker it's probably best to soften it with "please".
