360 feedback helps virtual teams work more effectively together

Recent research confirms that:
” 360 feedback has been linked to several positive outcomes like, improved performance, better interpersonal communication and smoother work relationships” (Rai and Singh)
“Perceived organisational support significantly affects employee performance” (Rai and Singh)
“An employee or manager who actively seeks feedback about his or her job performance is assumed to be more effective in his or her job than one who does not, suggesting feedback-performance link” (Asumeng)
“360 feedback is being used successfully as part of the performance system for decision making such as staffing, succession planning and high potential selection and development” (Bracken and Church)

360 Coaching plan of action that guarantees change

Four step 360 effectiveness plan
Many people are deluded regarding their performance and often overestimate their skill level. The Q-OPD 360 report will provide a ‘reality check’ for focused development.
1. Reality check the use of personality assessments and 360 feedback to inform and illuminate – how are the coachee’s behaviours helping or hindering their career progression and work results? We will help them understand what are their strengths, potential and blind spots. Key outcomes are to raise levels of self and social awareness understand how they are perceived in the workplace.
2. Identify decision criteria
We will help establish what really matters to the coachee in work and in life. This step ends with a set of decision criteria, weighted for importance, to guide the decision making process for the developmental plan. In addition this knowledge creates motivational momentum to drive the development plan over time
3. Gaining clarity and insight
We guide the coachee through this practical process, drawing upon a wide variety of sources, in order to identify and target the behaviours that will have most impact on performance
4. Working the practice plan
Making behaviour change easy, to maximise success. We share best practice from Neuroscience to enable the coachee to change their behaviour quickly and easily
