I agree with the other posters. However, there is one part of the OP that jumps out at me. You want to in essence criticize your coworker. I would NEVER EVER do that in writing. If I am going to end up putting a coworker down, it will be behind closed doors verbally. Emails get forwarded.
Thanks everyone for responding. As I thought I would get some good advice here.
Just thought you'd all know I wouldn't have sent the email without some purpose. That purpose however was another thing I was going to seek advice with, (that is, if people thought that it would have been okay to send it). Given my boss's busy schedule, I thought it would have been easier to send the list in email form and read it whenever it would be most convenient to him, rather than pinning him down at a certain time. It was also one way to give him my accomplishments in writing so he knows exactly what I've done rather than just from memory.
We do have some periodic staff meetings, but generally it's about what we're working on and how it might impact the other people in the meetings. BTW one of those staff member in the meeting is my predecessor. Anyway, it's hard how to communicate improvements without somehow making my predecessor look bad.
Actually it is not. Think about it, Its easier than you think.
