Featured Product: Everything DiSC® 363 For Leaders
Everything DiSC 363 For Leaders® is a kinder, gentler and more actionable 360-degree assessment.
I don’t know many leaders who truly enjoy receiving the results of their 360-degree assessment. Getting performance feedback from your manager is one thing. Getting it from peers, direct reports, and maybe even customers or vendors is something else altogether.
Those of us who have experienced the 360-degree process know it can be a humbling exercise. We also know the power of this process to help us become more effective leaders if we are open to hearing and acting on the feedback. And that’s where Everything DiSC 363 for Leaders excels.
Most 360-degree assessments ask raters to write in comments about how the leader can improve their performance. At best, this too often leads to poorly written comments that give the leader little guidance on how to change their behavior. At worst, comments are nasty, snide or down right mean, causing the leader to become defensive and discount the feedback.
Everything DiSC 363 For Leaders uses CommentSmart, a selectable comments feature that allows raters to choose from pre-written, highly tested comments, giving feedback that’s focused, balanced and constructive. Plus, the assessment provides leaders three priorities they can focus on to immediately improve leadership effectiveness.
The assessment identifies eight leadership approaches. Each approach is comprised of three leadership practices. Leaders discover the tendencies that shape their approach to leadership and identify which of the eight approaches and three behavioral practices are strengths and which would benefit from further development.
