Determine Leadership Requirements Before Conducting 360’s

As 360 degree leadership effectiveness tools become better indicators of perceived leadership behaviors, more-and-more companies are embarking on formal 360 degree evaluations of their leadership teams.  These insightful reports help leaders focus on developing the leadership skills those observing them in the workplace see as most needed.

However, prior to conducting 360 degree evaluations and delivering results, the leadership group must identify the leadership practices that are important to the organization.  Everyone should understand the organization’s leadership focus before getting their results.  Once leaders receive their reports their natural tendency is to dismiss the feedback in areas in which they scored poorly.  Having committed to focusing on specific leadership styles before receiving feedback forces them to be more objective and embrace development opportunities.

Empower your direct reports by choosing the important leadership practices before receiving 360 degree feedback and they’ll have a more successful development plan.
