Degree Assessment Process
Intergistic Solutions Overview
A 360-degree assessment is a feedback questionnaire that
provides information about an individual’s skills
and performance. The data is gathered from the
individual’s supervisor, peers and direct reports
via an online survey. The feedback is provided confidentially
and allows the individual to compare their self-evaluation
with those of other raters.
Feedback is an important element in professional and personal
development. However, most often individuals only receive
feedback from their supervisor. Use of the 360-degree assessment
process allows employees to be assessed by those who see
their performance from a variety of perspectives. To determine
if this process is right for your organization, ask yourself:
- How do you know if your employees have the competencies for your “go forward” plan?
- Do you have a process in place that helps develop individuals into leaders?
- How well does each employee understand his/her value to the team?
- Do your managers feel comfortable giving critical as well as positive feedback?
Intergistic Solutions will work collaboratively with an organization
to develop the 360-degree assessment with a list of competencies
that are customized to the organization. The outcome from
this process will be a list of behaviors and skills that
are critical to the success of the organization. This process
will promote alignment of individuals’ competencies
with the organization’s goals. These competencies
will form the core of a leadership development program.
the tool accelerates individual performance development
by providing data on what a person is doing well, in addition
to areas for improvement. One of the key benefits is that
over time, staff members can build skills that are focused
on the competencies the organization needs to succeed.
For most people, it is not enough to simply receive feedback.
Follow-up with an experienced coach after the data has been
analyzed and interpreted will accelerate the learning process.
A part of this process usually involves the creation of
a customized development plan that will help the individual
leverage their strengths and identify goals and action steps
for improvement. The executive coach can then continue to
facilitate change and monitor progress of the individual.
