JLBC Becoming a rounded leader
A more formal means of gaining information about yourself—or any individual in your team—from several sources are 360° feedback.
Ask a selection of four to eight people at different levels in your organization to comment on the leadership behaviors they have seen you display over the last year. If appropriate, ask them to consider this against your stated competencies. A questionnaire, set out like a customer satisfaction survey, will help provide a consistent format for the replies.
When you receive feedback from others, compare it with your evaluation of yourself. Which leadership competencies are your strengths? Which are your development areas? Which key competencies did you find the most challenging last year, and which will be even more demanding next year? JLBC Note
The key development areas and think about how you can broaden or
deepen your knowledge, skills, or practice—for example, reading up on a
topic or attending a course. As well as providing valuable insight into others’ perceptions of your leadership, 360° feedback is an invaluable tool for helping you prepare for your appraisal discussion with your manager.
