360 Degree Feedback
What is 360 degree feedback?
360 degree feedback enables an individual to obtain views and evaluations on their performance from a range of different people who observe their behaviour. This may include their line manager, direct reports, colleagues, customers, stakeholders and peers.
Why use 360 degree feedback?
360 can be a powerful tool to assist with an individual’s development. Receiving meaningful feedback from other people is one of the most effective methods for enabling personal development and behavioural change. Distorted or inaccurate self-awareness is a barrier to personal development and building effective working relationships. By assessing their own performance and seeing how that compares to how other people experience their behaviour, a 360 degree feedback questionnaire can help an individual increase self-awareness and develop the impact they have on the people they work with. A 360 degree feedback questionnaire can provide deep insight into strengths, areas for development as well as hidden strengths and blind spots.
