The DecisionWise 360 Degree Feedback Survey for Business Leaders

DecisionWise 360 degree feedback surveys measure a series of research-based leadership competencies and behaviors. These competencies have been developed based on over 20 years of experience working with leaders and organizations around the world.

Each competency includes about four behavior descriptors that are both observable and actionable. It is important that the behavior be observable by the participant’s boss, peers, and direct reports to show comparisons between the groups. The items must also be actionable so that a participant can easily understand what to do to change in order to improve.

What is a Leadership derailer?

A derailer is not just a weakness. A leadership derailer is a behavior that gets in the way of our progress. We all have many weaknesses that we may never choose to improve or need to master. A derailer is a weakness that requires improvement if we are to realize our potential.

At DecisionWise, we measure leadership derailers on our 360-degree feedback surveys using a separate section from the normal leadership competencies. Without a derailers section, you are probably missing important pieces of your 360-degree feedback puzzle.

Derailers guide us to specific areas where we can take action. They often give us the “why” behind the results. Combined with the open-ended comments and the results from the leadership competency section, participants can clearly see themes develop in their feedback. Included in the survey are 13 of the most common leadership derailers.
