360 Degree Feedback

How can 360 degree feedback be used in practice?

360 degree feedback is a highly versatile tool that can be used in several ways.

Individual Development

360 degree feedback can be deployed at any time, there is no need to wait for the next available course. 360 degree feedback is highly individualised making it much more focussed and relevant to the individual receiving the feedback. The feedback tends to be much more impactful and usually results in an action plan that is based on the individual’s own development needs. 

Leadership Development

‘Training’ is great for raising people’s awareness of best practice, but it is less effective when it comes to shifting behaviour. 360 degree feedback can complement new thinking by helping people understand how they stack up. 

Training Needs Analysis

When used on a specific cohort, 360 degree feedback is a great way to understand the group’s overall strengths and development needs enabling you to target your development budget more effectively. 

How people do things is often as important as what they know. 360 degree feedback is a great way to identify behavioural strengths (and development needs) of the people you consider to be your high talent.
