LEADS 360 Assessment
What is a 360?
The term "360" refers to the degrees in a circle, with an individual (the "subject") figuratively in the centre of the circle. In human resources or industrial/organizational psychology, 360 degree feedback (also known as multi-rater feedback, multisource feedback, or multisource assessment) is feedback that comes from all around an individual (the "responders"). Respondents providing feedback are normally direct reports, peers, and supervisors. It usually includes a self-assessment by the subject and, in some cases, feedback from other sources such as "customers", "partners", "professional standards observers" and "suppliers" or other interested stakeholders.
LEADS 360 Assessments
The LEADS 360 Assessment is a feedback process primarily for development purposes. It focuses on leadership and takes the capabilities identified in the LEADS in Caring Environment capabilities framework and identifies sentinel behaviors that would be exhibited by front-line, mid-level, senior, or executive level leaders. There are approximately fifty-five questions, each on a seven point rating scale, plus a number of optional open-ended text responses.
The process uses web-based software that securely stores data in Canada. The individuals providing feedback to a subject are identified by the subject, by the employer, or randomly generated from a list of key contacts. The individual and the responders receive a confidential, personal access password to complete the online process. This normally requires twenty to thirty minutes depending on the amount of text an individual wishes to include.
The LEADS 360 Assessment requires a debriefing by a LEADS Certified Executive Coach.
