What Is 360 Degree Feedback?
Just think how useful that would be to drive the performance of the leadership within your organisation.
Especially so for the manager in this example as there seems to be a big disconnect between how they perceive their performance compared to those who provided feedback on them!
360 feedback is a process where your managers have the opportunity to receive feedback on their performance from their line manager, their staff, colleagues and even their customers.
It also provides the opportunity for your managers to take a step back and to provide a self-assessment of their own strengths and weaknesses.
They can also work very well during the performance management process, staff appraisals, regular one to ones, as part of a training programme or for gathering training needs.
360 Degree Clients
Some of them use our 360 statements as they are.
Some use their own criteria and others use our statements as a baseline and then amend and adapt them to fit exactly what they need.
The roles we have ready made statements for include:
- Team leaders
- Middle managers
- Senior managers
Off The Shelf or Bespoke
360 Degree Assessment
We have several off the shelf questionnaires that you can use “as is” or you can download them and make changes to ensure that you are measuring exactly what you need.
Or indeed, you can develop your own 360 feedback questionnaire and start from scratch so if you have a competency development framework or if you want to use it for 360 appraisal for example, you can measure against that…exactly.
Therefore your managers will receive feedback that will really make a difference to them personally and to your organisation as a whole.
Want to compare your managers over time? We have an option that will enable you to do exactly that. We have a number of comparison reports that you can use that will illustrate their improvements over a specific time period.
You can also group reports up for say a team or a management population so you can receive an aggregated picture of your entire management population if the needs be.
This is found to be very useful for measuring cultural aspects of the business and for providing leadership training needs analysis.

What Do Organisations Use 360 Feedback For?
Some organisations use it for 360 appraisals or 360 reviews. These are for performance improvement purposes. It’s important that employees understand where their strengths and areas of development are.
What normally happens for a review is that the manager will take a self-assessment and will have input from their line manager, staff members and peers.
It can there be seen as a vital and very important performance appraisal tool.
Secondly, this process can also be used as part of learning and development initiatives such as a training needs analysis. Imagine that each of your managers take a 360 assessment prior to a development programme – they then take the training programme and then 6 months later take the 360 assessment again to see if there have been any improvements.
Whatever your needs our 360 feedback tool can help.
