360 Degree Feedback for Management Development

What is 360 Degree Feedback?

The 360 degree process comprises of two phases:

360 degree profiling is the process of gaining feedback from peers, clients, managers assessing the participant against a set of behaviours, competencies, or core values.

360 degree coaching, on the other hand, is the process of coaching the person who was assessed through the interpretation of their profiling results into a course of action that will result in behavioural change that will produce sustainable gains in productivity.

How can 360 Degree Feedback be used?

360 degree feedback is used in management development to:

  • Make the assessee aware of the perceptions of his/her behaviour in
  • the workplace as viewed by his/her work colleagues
  • Identify behavioural strengths of the assessee
  • Identify areas of behaviour that may need development
  • Provide a basis for compiling a personal development plan
  • Create an environment where open discussion about behaviour is an accepted practice in the organisation
