3 Myths About 360s

Research confirms that leadership skills positively influence sales, net income, turnover and employee engagement.

So how can you ensure that your leaders have the competencies and skills they need to drive results? By implementing a 360-degree feedback process for all your leaders. For almost 20 years, our firm has been designing and implementing 360-degree feedback tools for a diverse group of clients throughout North America. We’ve discovered that despite the popularity of 360s, there are three myths.

Myth #1: One size fits all.

Organizations are unique in terms of strategy, direction and competency models. 360 tools need to be customized to reflect these and uncover the challenges or roadblocks. Is change leadership important, given shifts in the market place and your new priorities? Do you want to improve employee engagement, through improved coaching and mentoring? Or is your goal to break down silos through enhanced collaboration and teamwork?

Myth #2: We won’t get great response rates.

Our clients have achieved anywhere from an 85-99% percent rate from the C-Suite to individual contributors. The key to high participation rates is to ensure that leaders understand the whywhat, how and when. Communicate the reasons to have 360s in an interactive group session, so that questions and concerns can be voiced. Emphasize confidentiality and anonymity. Communicate your commitment throughout the entire process.

 Myth #3: A 30-minute debrief is enough to create behavioural change.

Absolutely not! Leaders require an opportunity to read and reread their report on their own, with guidelines. Then they need a 1-2 hour debrief with an experienced, skilled coach followed by at least one coaching session to create a leadership development plan. The plan should define goals, activities, resources and timelines and be supported by the individual’s leader.

If you would like to discuss a 360-degree tool for your organization, please contact us at (905) 990-2515 or email jhill@coreconsultinginc.ca. We look after every detail in the entire process, from customizing the web-based 360-degree survey, to administering the survey, to responding to questions and to compiling a detailed report for the leader and coach. Our team of highly experienced, skilled coaches will conduct insightful coaching debriefs with your leaders and collaborate with them to develop impactful leadership development plans.
