WHAT ARE 360 reviews? Definitions

Leadership 360 Review:  A 360 Degree Feedback Review is a multi-source feedback, multi-rater assessment, upward feedback or peer evaluation designed to give you a panoramic view of your leadership capabilities. ... The 360 Degree feedback process involves both participants (the person or people being reviewed) and raters.

360 review : is a professional feedback opportunity that enables a group of co-workers to provide feedback on an employee's performance. The feedback is generally asked for by the manager to whom the employee reports.   Head in sand

Most often, information solicited in a 360-degree feedback process will include feedback from an employee's subordinates, peers (colleagues), and supervisor(s), as well as a self-evaluation by the employee him or herself.


There are a number of different instruments and  methodologies available to  use. However our preferred pick for Executive Leaders / Managers is one based on Emotional Intelligence.

The reasons why we would recommend Emotional Intelligence, is that the research into what makes a leader successful always has at its centre, the skills and behaviours that define Emotional Intelligence. Furthermore it has been demonstrated that these skills and behaviours can in fact be developed overtime. Whilst there are a number of personality assessments that also offer a 360 degree component, from our expe360 degree feedbackrience running both types, it’s more difficult to get behavioural changes through making someone aware of their own personality.

We have years of experience providing these services for Executive Leaders groups (like QLD Government Departments, a private finance company and a not-for-profit organisation in the Health and Disability Sector) using the GENOS Emotionally Intelligent Leadership framework.

WHAT IS IT?  It is a 360 degree assessment against 6 core competencies and can incorporate feedback from their direct managers, peers, direct reports or other stakeholders they regular have to work with. Depending on which approach you were to take as well the number of people participating in the process, costs typically range from:

  • Instrument and debrief - $560.00
  • Coaching program including Instrument and 6 executive coaching sessions - $1720.00

It would be beneficial to catch-up in person or over the phone and discuss what you would hope to get out of a program like this.    Contact Dean Tuckey on 07 47723800.
