A Sat Nav needs several satellites to give it information to accurately plot a route. Colleagues need feedback from their manager, direct reports, peers, and customers to get an accurate picture of their performance.
If you know where you want to go, a Sat Nav gives you bite-size instructions on how to get there. Likewise, when you know where you want to take your career, a great 360-degree review gives you the feedback you need make your aspirations a reality.
A 360 review done well is transformative
Brilliant 360 reviews help colleagues understand their strengths and develop so that they become even more valuable contributors.
Done poorly, a 360 is a waste of time and resources, providing no clear development or path to move forward.
How can you make your 360-degree reviews a success?
Make sure you are measuring the right skills.
Take time to explain to both the participants and those providing feedback why this exercise is taking place.
Emphasize the confidentiality of the process
Ensure the survey doesn’t take more than 15mins to complete.
Focus on discovering strengths, not just development areas.
Create profile results that are easy to understand and backed up with a clear development plan.
