Workshop description:

360-degree feedback involves the collection of anonymous observations from coworkers to support leadership development and, in some organizations, to provide data that can improve decision making within human resource processes such as staffing, performance management, and succession planning.  When used for decision-making, 360-degree rating processes come under more scrutiny regarding their design and implementation, and, ultimately, their validity.  This workshop will review the myriad of design decisions that can determine the effectiveness of a 360-degree rating system to generate relevant, reliable information and to create sustainable behavior change throughout an organization.

Workshop topics will include: 

  • aligning purpose and 360 implementation,
  • overcoming logistical challenges,
  • legal considerations,
  • best practices in 360,
  • why 360’s are not “tests,”
  • creating individual and organizational change.
