Effective Leadership Starts With Superior Feedback Tools
For many leaders, 360s® can be a frustrating experience. At best, open-ended comments can be unfocused and unhelpful. At worst, they can be a way to anonymously take a jab at a colleague. Ultimately, they can potentially derail the learning process. We believe that 360® feedback and performance reports can be a positive and effective leadership tool when employed using tools that promote self-awareness and provide leaders with constructive, actionable, feedback.
A New Kind of 360® !
Everything DiSC 363® for Leaders isn’t just any 360. It combines the best of 360s® with the simplicity and power of DiSC®, plus three strategies for promoting effective leadership. The result is a 360 experience that’s more productive and satisfying.
Everything DiSC 363Ⓡ focuses on the interpersonal aspects of leadership. The program improves self-awareness in key areas that will help people get better leadership outcomes. When you think about people who exemplify leadership-historical figures, contemporary standouts, or people in your organization-do the words generic or cookie cutter come to mind? Probably not. Most likely, you can describe unique aspects of their leadership style that help them succeed. In fact, two equally successful leaders may take two very different approaches to leadership.
And so, why in the world should leadership training involve following one set of narrowly defined principles? This program aims to help leaders reflect on their use of a broad range of highly effective approaches to leadership. You’ll receive constructive 360° feedback on your leadership approaches, and you’ll discover three personalized strategies to help you become a more effective leader.
We took the sting out of 360® feedback
The profile looks at eight approaches to effective leadership as suggested by the DiSC® model. These include the Pioneering, Energizing, Affirming, Inclusive, Humble, Deliberate, Resolute, and Commanding Approaches. The leadership assessment asks questions to determine the leader’s tendencies in using each of these eight approaches. The profile provides 360® feedback around the eight approaches as three strategies to improve their leadership effectiveness.
With our exclusive selectable comments feature, CommentSmart, raters can give focused, balanced, and constructive feedback — that leaders can actually use. This time-saving option allows raters to expand on their ratings by choosing from a list of highly-tested comments.
We made it easier to understand and use.
Everything DiSC 363® for Leaders isn’t a collection of dry spreadsheets and charts without any explanation or story. Instead, it combines clear visuals and a conversational narrative style to interpret and explain the data, making the report easy to understand and use.
We answered the “Now what?”
With a lot of 360s, the leader’s response is, “Now what?” Everything DiSC 363® for Leaders answers that question by giving leaders their next steps with the three strategies to improve their leadership effectiveness that can be put into action immediately.
Each leader receives a report that outlines information in their report on
