Because the purpose of a 360-degree feedback assessment is to get feedback from a variety of people who work with the leader, three main categories of team members are asked to participate in the feedback process: direct reports, peers and direct leaders. A good number of feedback providers is 15-20 people for a comprehensive report.
The participating leader will also complete a self-evaluation by responding to the same questions as all other feedback providers.
The online assessment takes approximately 20 minutes for each respondent to complete.
The anonymity of respondents is the key to a successful 360-degree feedback assessment. To accomplish this, the participating leader will receive aggregate scores and comments, not individual responses.
Detailed instructions are provided at the beginning of the assessment, explaining how to answer the questions. If there are questions that don’t apply specifically to the feedback respondent, that person may want to consider the interactions they observe this person having with others. The respondent can also select “N/A” for questions that don’t apply to either of these situations.
Our 360-degree feedback assessment provides questions on the leader’s effectiveness in areas of accountability, inspiration, coaching, feedback, humility, integrity, communication and overall leadership.
