It is always hard to see ourselves as other see us. 360 Feedback is a very powerful tool to understand how we are perceived, raise self-awareness and serves as a strong spur for personal development and behaviour change. It is a very good companion to support coaching, learning and development as it acts as a pair of “outer eyes” generating multiple perspectives of how others see you comparing this to how you see yourself.
WHAT IS 360 AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
360 is a survey of how others perceive you compared to how you perceive yourself.
Participants identify a range of people to offer feedback which is elicited using an online survey questionnaire or alternatively via a series of telephone calls to key contacts by an independent coach.
Once a report is generated, your feedback is explored with a coach who will bring a completely confidential, balanced and objective perspective of the data, help you to interpret the results and build a development plan to take you forward.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF USING A COACH FOR 360 FEEDBACK?
Working with a coach helps to ensure that participants and organisations get the best value from the process. A coach provides benefits that cannot be easily attained from within the company, in particular:
- A completely independent and impartial view – objective sounding board
- Confidentiality – issues can be explored in depth without any hidden agendas or vested interests, leading to greater honesty, openness and accountability.
- A balanced perspective between strengths and development areas
- Help with next steps and development planning – brainstorming ideas and options
