Transformations now offers 360 degree feedback - Perspectives 360 for Managers – Briefing Sheet
What is Perspectives 360?
Perspectives 360 is a simple, but effective skills assessment system, which provides a snapshot picture of the skills of managers. The assessment is drawn from the National Occupational Standards for Management.
Perspectives 360 for Managers is built around the six Core Management Skills of Planning, Communication, Team-working, Leading, Personal Effectiveness and Managing People. It provides managers with an invaluable insight into how they are perceived by the people
who know them best – the people with whom they work. Each of the Core Management Skills is further sub-divided into a set of Specific Skills such as Developing Others, Managing Change and Explaining Clearly.
As a result of the assessment, managers receive a detailed report on their skills, which is used as the basis of a one-to-one feedback meeting with a trained Perspectives 360 Facilitator.
How does Perspectives 360 work?
Using a questionnaire containing seventy-five management behaviour statements, managers complete an on-line self-assessment questionnaire, taking around 10 – 15 minutes to complete. A number of other people also assess each manager: ideally someone senior (x 1), subordinates or team members (x 3 - 4) and a colleague or a peer (x1). All statements should be scored. This provides a complete picture of the how other
people perceive the manager’s skills, which is then compared to the manager’s own perception of their skills in a Specific Skills Profile.
Are the scores confidential?
Yes. Each manager will receive a detailed eight-page report containing a Specific Skills
Profile, an explanation of the assessment and a set of twenty-five suggestions on ways of improving their management skills. The Specific Skills Profile will show the self-assessment with the combined assessment of the people who also completed the questionnaire – it will not be possible to see the scores given by each of the other individuals who have
completed the questionnaire.
The respondents may be chosen by the manager or by their employer. Whoever selects the respondents, the answers will remain confidential.
