360 Degree Feedback Assessment Programme360 degree feedback assessment gives you feedback from your colleagues about strengths that you can leverage to a greater extent and about weaker areas which may be inhibiting your performance and your career progression.

360 Degree Feedback Assessment is an extremely powerful performance and personal development tool. It gives you the rare opportunity to see how you are perceived by the people you work most closely with – your manager, your peers, your direct reports and other internal and external contacts - under eight competencies: leadership, adaptability, relationships, task management, production, development of others, personal development and communication.Feedback is vital to personal and professional development, yet most people do not receive adequate feedback on their performance. Generally, managers only provide feedback through a performance management system which focuses on the individual’s ability to meet defined organisational objectives. The wider dimensions of an employee’s role such as their ability to communicate effectively, establish productive relationships, think creatively and solve problems are frequently not discussed despite the fact that they are critical to successfully achieving the organisational objectives.360 degree feedback assessment gives you insight into your strengths that you can leverage to a greater extent and into weaker areas which may be inhibiting your performance and your career progression. The feedback report itself is followed up with coaching to help you to identify the behaviours that you would like to change; to frame specific and measurable goals around those changes and to achieve those goals.See the success stories on reducing stress and addressing confidence issues; making an impact in a new company; and communicating constructively and influentially to see how other clients have benefitted from 360 degree feedback assessment.Process:
  • 1 hour introductory consultation
  • Preparation of 360 feedback assessment report
  • 4 x 2 hour face-to-face coaching sessions over six months

Myers Briggs Personality Type AssessmentKnowing your MBTI personality type gives you insight into yourself and other people – you will be able to improve your performance and get the best from your team by appreciating and anticipating the contributions and the needs of differing personality types within your team and within the organisation.

The Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is the world’s most widely used personality type assessment based on over 50 years of research and development. Knowing your MBTI personality type helps you to be clear about the way you like to work, learn, communicate, make decisions and organise yourself. It makes you aware of your talents and your particular contribution to your team and to your organisation. It also gives you insight into other people – you will be able to improve your performance and get the best from your team by appreciating and anticipating the contributions and the needs of differing personality types within your team and within the organisation. Knowing this personality framework will help you get better results from how you communicate; deal with conflict; motivate; retain talented employees; and bring stressed employees back into balance. See the success stories on hitting the ground running in a new leadership role; improving team performance; and getting a new job to see how other clients have benefitted from Myers Briggs personality type assessment. Process:
  • Provision and administration of Myers Briggs Questionnaire
  • 2 hour face-to-face meeting to confirm type and explore implications of type.

Myers Briggs Team DayA team day based on the Myers Briggs personality type indicator is an excellent way for you to reinvigorate your team as it is a lot of fun; it improves communication within the team and it provides insights into gaps in the team's strategic approach to their work and opportunities for them to work together more effectively.

The team day gives your team members a framework for valuing what each of the different personality types contribute to the work of the team – personality differences which may have caused misunderstandings and perhaps even irritation in the past are recognised as beneficial and necessary to working towards better solutions. The exploration of the overall team type often gives insights into gaps in the team's strategic approach to their work and opportunities for them to work together more effectively. Process:
  • Provision and administration of Myers Briggs questionnaire to the team
  • One day workshop for team members to confirm type and explore the implications of individual type and team type.

The significant problems we face cannot be solved at the same level of thinking we were at when we created them.
