Structured 360 Degree Feedback is vital for leadership, team and individual development. It plays a crucial role in:
- Motivating and valuing individuals
- Improving communications
- Relationship building
- Personal development
Feedback from colleagues, peers, line managers, customers, and suppliers gives a comprehensive insight into the strengths and development areas a person exhibits in their job as seen by those around them.
By comparing their own self assessment with the perceptions of colleagues, your 360 Degree Feedback will provide valuable input to talent management, performance appraisals and training evaluation.
How It Works
The process of 360 Degree Feedback can be summarised in four simple steps:
- A questionnaire is developed with a set of indicators that enable assessors to ‘rate’ a person (there may also be the ability to include comments or suggestions for improvement)
- The questionnaire is then distributed to the ‘assessors’ (colleagues and associates) who are in a good position to judge the candidate on the indicators
- Once the data has been gathered it is analysed and provided as a report to the person being assessed
- A one-to-one meeting then takes place to discuss the results and agree on action plans and any personal development needs.
