360 Feedback: The Fundamentals
360 feedback is a leadership development process in which survey data is collected from various sources regarding leaders' competencies. This feedback is compiled into a report which is shared with the focal leaders to guide their development. In order to ensure the best results when creating a 360 feedback process, you should keep the following in mind. First, anonymity is of the utmost importance. In order for other raters to give honest and productive feedback, they should be guaranteed that their data will be collected anonymously. Second, 360 feedback should be used for developmental purposes only.
