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.

360 Frequently Asked Questions


LEADS 360 Assessments

The LEADS 360 Assessment is a feedback tool, primarily designed for leadership development. It is a questionnaire that takes the capabilities identified in the LEADS in Caring Environment capabilities framework and identifies sentinel behaviors exhibited by front-line, mid-level, senior, or executive level leaders. There are approximately sixty-five questions, each on a seven point rating scale, plus a number of optional open-ended text responses. The individuals (responders) providing feedback are identified by the 360 assessment participant, often with input from his or her supervisor. The 360 participants and their responders receive a confidential, personal access password to complete the online assessment process.

As a 360 participant, you receive the benefit of feedback from the full circle of people with whom you interact in the course of your work, rather than the singular perspective of your supervisor. Only you and your assigned debriefing coach will see your assessment results. Your assigned debriefing coach will help you begin developing a ‘Learning Plan’ to identify your areas of strength and one or more areas of focus for development over the coming year. This is a great opportunity to understand how your leadership capabilities ‘show up’ to your different responder groups, celebrate your strengths and improve relationships. The debriefing of your personal results will help you determine where to focus your future development as a leader..

Should you have any questions regarding the 360 Assessment, please address them to Kate Lawrie, Administrative Coordinator, LEADS 360 Support at or at 1-800-363-9056 ext. 211.
