5 questions to ask; what style of 360 Degree Feedback report to use?

default-16x9

In 360 Degree Feedback, the graphical style of report is key to the success or failure of the programme.

Data in a 360 report

Too dense with meaningless data, and the recipient can come away overwhelmed, with no idea of what to make of their feedback.

Too high level, and again the recipient can come away bewildered and with little insight into what specific skills they have or what development is required.

360 report style and the debrief conversation

In either event, the style of report drives the debrief conversation - it guides the debriefer and recipient to consider what is laid out in front of them; so it's important to decide up front how you want to present the graphical feedback or rated questions.

5 questions to ask

Here we offer 5 questions to ask when deciding what style of 360 Degree Feedback report you should use:

1. What is the purpose of the 360 Degree Feedback programme? Developmental? To benchmark?

2. What sort of debrief conversation do you wish to have? One which raises self-awareness? One which draws comparison with others?

3. What level of anonymity do you wish to have in the process? 

4. What data would be most helpful for the individual? 

5. What data would be most helpful for the organisation? 

A guide to 360 Degree Feedback reports

We consider these questions in our free guide '36o reports; what works, when' - if you would like a copy then simply email us at info@bowlandsolutions.com with the guide title as subject header and it will be sent through with our compliments.
