This Episode: How To Manage A 360 Feedback Programme

Lucinda discusses the 360 feedback programme – its benefits and the way they work – and offers a partial guide to how you can roll this system out within your own organisation.

Key Takeaways

  • 360 feedback is defined as a skill and behavioural development tool – one for self-awareness. The feedback generally comes in the form of a report using graphical and descriptive feedback.
  • When setting up for feedback, we must ensure that responses are anonymised as much as possible. Indeed, anonymity engenders honesty.
  • 360 feedback might be a more objective way of assessing potential partners or if someone is attempting to demonstrate their suitability for a more management-oriented role.
  • When building a 360 template, try to stay under 30 questions. Additionally, aim for 3 to 6 categories which are useful for grouping the feedback. Lastly, this helps to create an instant visual indication based upon the answers given.
