Our team is certified in a multitude of 360 degree feedback assessments; however, we typically recommend a qualitative 360 degree feedback process, as it allows follow up questions and an aggregation of richer data.  In a qualitative process, one-on-one interviews are conducted with peers, the manager, direct reports, and possibly clients to get a broad and deep perspective.  With both qualitative and online feedback, a feedback report is developed that is shared with the individual, and a development plan is created to ensure strengths are leveraged and development opportunities are addressed.

          Some Assessment Tools we use include:

                    Qualitative Interviews
                    • Benchmarks (CCL)
                    Profilor (PDI)
                    Leadership Mirror (DDI)
                     Lominger
                    Polaris OSI
                     Management Research Group’s LEA 360™
                    Birkman 360°
                    The Leadership Circle Profile
                    The Leadership Culture Survey

Created a targeted qualitative 360 degree feedback process with key executives to validate misguided perceptions in the organization for a talented leader. Changed perceptions resulted in realistic assessment of good leadership skills for Leader and eliminated the need for Executive Coaching as had originally been intended.

Self-awareness is critical for everyone. Understand- ing the impact you have on others and what you can do to influence them is what makes for strong results and a successful leader or employee.

We integrate EQ assessments such as Bar-On Emotional Quotient Inventory (EQi)  with practical learning to create stronger leaders in your organization. The Bar-On EQi measures an individual’s ability to understand his/her own behavior and how that impacts self and others.
