360 feedback meeting question prompts for managers

How a manager approaches a 360 feedback meeting will partly depend on who initiated the process. Perhaps a team member requested the review seeking a specific career development path or the manager has sought feedback on a direct report’s performance, or as part of a wider process the organisation may be seeking to identify high potential candidates in a high stakes promotion process. Either way, the line manager’s role in the success of the 360 review process is crucial. So, we’ve put together a list of question prompts to help better prepare managers to get the most out of 360 review meetings.…

Template with Step by Step Instructions to Help Reviewers Give 360 Feedback

Setting up and managing a 360 review programme in any organisation is a complex process and in our experience, it can feel a bit overwhelming for HR Leaders and 360 Review programme managers as they navigate their way through implementing every step.

360 Degree and Dispersed Team Feedback

Whether you have been effectively BAU since lockdown started, whether you and your colleagues have started a phased re-entry to your workplaces or whether you are going to be working from home for the foreseeable, it is more important than ever to be getting meaningful, insightful and useful feedback about how you're doing. We've written before about the way that 360 can be used within teams. Traditionally very much an individual experience, we feel that 360 has many applications and more value it can add.  Helping teams to understand how well communication is working within the group, how effectively people are supporting each other, identifying potential peer-matches for coaching and knowledge sharing are just some ways in which the power of 360 can be leveraged on a collective basis. Whatever happens over the next year, we can be in no doubt that we will continue to work in a more dispersed manner than we ever did before Covid19.  Even if you are a team who are frontline and less impacted by the shift in working practices, you will have fewer face to face interactions with some colleagues, partner teams, customer groups or corporate functions who have had to work from home.  A sense of team cohesion, identity and belonging, collaboration, communication and inclusion are more important than ever. In this piece we consider how 360 can help us be more effective in these disrupted times.…
