  • Conduct meaningful 360 Performance Reviews to build leadership and management skills.

    Most feedback at work is from a boss to a direct report. 360 Reviews expand that feedback to allow the employee, their boss (es), direct reports, peers and others to provide feedback in critical areas, including communications, leadership, adaptability, relationships, task management, production, development of others and personal development. Areas needing attention are highlighted AND SUPPLEMENTED with pointers for improvement. There are also on- line modules for areas that need strengthening.

    The impact of such information is far more constructive and more likely to strengthen performance and outcomes than any one-on-one review. This is a reasonable investment with outstanding returns to your organization!
