Benchmarked and bespoke 360 feedback tools

Improve performance by building self-awareness with 360 feedback

The external insights that are gained in the 360 feedback approach bring the dimensions to self-reflection that make it truly evidence-based.

Self-reflection is only powerful if it is informed by external insights on your performance. 360 feedback is the most effective way of obtaining those evidence-based insights which will motivate a leader’s self-development.

Why 360° feedback?

Leadership happens in the interactions between people and interactions with any one person or group will be different.  A 360° assessment collects confidential and therefore more honest feedback about a leader’s performance from those who work all around them, building self-awareness and reducing blind spots.

Use 360 feedback to:

  • Identify potential future leaders
  • Understand the impact of existing leaders on individuals/teams/the organisation
  • Personalise leadership programmes and measure their impact
  • Gain insight into what your workforce’s perspective on leadership is
  • Understand how leaders fair in comparison to benchmark groups
  • Ascertain what is required to develop individual leaders and leadership teams
  • Track an individual’s development over time.
