In comparison to other sales assessments, the scores are not static, and the tool presumes that anyone is hireable as a person can develop or reprioritise their competencies. ​

Define and Assess your Leadership Culture

For organisations to thrive, a business needs to identify what they need from an immediate manager and leader. Open 360s provide a model for expressing this in a way that the direct reports and leader can understand. Define your organisation’s view of leadership and analyse whether your leaders embody this vision and are walking the talk.

Assess Current and Identify New Leaders

Once you’ve defined your ideal leadership culture, you can use 360 degree feedback to assess your current leadership team and identify new high potentials who embody strong leadership qualities. Ask a leader’s direct reports, peers, managers and even key suppliers or clients to assess them against this leadership criteria. From the review, you’ll gain reliable insight into a leader’s strengths and weaknesses, with clear areas for leadership development.

Identify Leadership Blind Spots

Most leaders have blind spots. These are areas in which they are critical of themselves or where they are overly self-confident. Uncovering these blind spots through feedback from peers and direct reports as well as building stronger self-awareness is vital for leaders to understand what may be holding them back. There is a massive expectation for leaders to act and behave in a certain way, so when they are under pressure, blind spots can emerge. So uncovering these blind spots through feedback from peers and direct reports as well as building stronger self-awareness is essential for leaders to understand.

Monitor Leadership Growth

360 Feedback provides an efficient and regular way of monitoring leadership performance. The results are useful to leaders as it helps them understand how others perceive them in the organisation, versus only hitting targets. The review illustrates how others see their leadership style and how well they inspire, motivate and communicate with team members, or how others view their attempts to develop people and drive change.
