Leveraging 360 Feedback Can Help You Uncover Opportunity Areas and Transform Your Employment Brand

For many executives, it can be challenging for them to take a look at themselves and determine their development areas. Their stakeholders often won’t give them the critical feedback they need to hear for fear of the repercussions that may ensue.

To reach your full potential in your professional and personal life, you’ll need to understand how others perceive your actions and behaviors. Many business leaders are turning to qualitative 360-degree feedback assessments to obtain these invaluable insights from their respondents in a thorough and confidential way.

If you’re serious about self-improvement, a 360 assessment can be a powerful tool to help you recognize any gaps that you might have. Leveraging a professional assessor and coach can help you decode any themes of feedback and build a plan to accelerate your development growth and results.

What is 360 Feedback?

A 360 feedback assessment involves collecting feedback from your superiors, direct reports, peers, and subordinates. Interviews are kept confidential to encourage respondents to be more critically reflective. The information gathered is then used to construct an overall narrative of how you’re coming across, where your gaps are, and anything else that may be preventing you from achieving your goals.

The feedback conversations are tailored to your respondents’ styles in order to get the best feedback on behalf of you. These focused respondent interactions go well beyond a simple question and answer session to pressure test assumptions and discover any new emerging themes.

After the respondent conversations are completed, you’ll receive anonymized and cross-validated feedback from the people who know you best. This feedback will help you optimize your team, grow your relationships, and increase your level of self-understanding.

Why You Should Consider Participating in a 360 Review

How would you place a value on oxygen if it were your last breath? Balanced feedback truly is the life blood of your future personal and professional growth.

A 360 review will help you:

Uncover Any Leadership Deficiencies or Negative Perceptions

Most of us have habits we aren’t aware of that are preventing us from advancing in our career. Learn where you’re falling short in the eyes of your superiors and colleagues so that you can work on improving in those critical areas.

Learn What Sets You Apart

360 feedback isn’t just for discovering your weaknesses. You’ll also learn about what strengths you have so that you can continue doing what has made you successful. Doing this will enable you to polish your competitive differentiators and continue to excel in your role.

Improve Your Performance

Participating in 360 feedback will allow you to create a personal development plan that will incorporate more introspection, better self-awareness, and higher EQ. This will put you on a path towards self-optimization and help you to continue to learn and grow.

Collect Feedback from Multiple Sources

It’s common for one person’s opinion to be an outlier. By collecting responses from numerous stakeholders, you’ll receive cross-validated qualitative feedback that’s far more accurate. This will enable you to separate fact from fiction and really hone in on key focus areas.
