What is the purpose of the 360?
The 360 will provide you with information from a variety of individuals on your effectiveness as a leader. Through the feedback provided in your 360, you will gain information about your strengths and areas for development. The 360 report will be a catalyst for setting two or three specific development goals that you would like to work on during L2L and well into the future. Working with a coach, you will also structure a plan and pinpoint relevant strategies to help you achieve your goals. For more about the 360, see Leadership Competencies.
Who completes my 360?
You ask people with whom you work closely (or have worked) to provide you with feedback. Typically, this includes your manager, peers, direct reports, and other colleagues. You also rate yourself.
You should think about inviting raters who can best comment on your leadership abilities. If you are new to your position, you might consider asking people from a previous job. If you have a work relationship that doesn’t fall neatly into one of our recommended categories, feel free to ask that person and designate them as “peer/colleague” or “other.”
How many people complete my 360?
To ensure confidentiality, at least three peers/colleagues, three direct reports and three others must respond for each group to be reflected in your report. If you have less than three peers/colleagues or direct reports, we suggest that you invite them to participate, but classify them as part of a larger group (for example, they could be reclassified as “other”). You also complete the survey for yourself.
How do I get feedback?
After all of your raters have submitted their feedback, you will receive a compilation of their feedback in a report via email. The feedback is confidential, and you will not know how a specific person rated you except for your manager. This report is intended solely for your benefit and leadership development.
Who sees my feedback?
Only you and your coach will see your report. You will meet individually with your coach to interpret the feedback and begin developing a few individual development goals. You can choose whether or not you want to share the feedback with anyone else. All of the 360 feedback and data is maintained by an outside, independent consulting firm, MOR Associates.
