360 Degree Feedback is an incredibly powerful tool, if done right. Many organizations, however, simply order an assessment and leave the participant to try and understand the feedback they have been given. Participants, however, need ongoing support, especially as they first interpret their report and review their feedback.
The single best way to ensure that leaders find value from the 360 Degree Feedback process is to support them with a 60 or 90-minute coaching session where they can discuss their report with a Certified 360 Feedback Coach. 360 Degree Feedback coaching helps leaders appropriately interpret and process their report. Coaching helps them to focus on their strengths, and not just their weaknesses. Coaching also keeps participants from guessing “who said what” and start focusing on how their feedback can help them with both their short-term and long-term goals.
