363® for Leaders – A New Kind of 360 Feedback

Nobody really doubts the value of feedback in improving performance! Examples are everywhere – most obvious in professional sports!. But the same principle holds true in the business world – Leadership performance can be enhanced by feedback.

ED 363 363® for Leaders – A New Kind of 360 FeedbackNow Inscape Publishing has released 363 for Leaders as one of its Everything DiSC® series of learning assessments. But Everything DiSC® for Leaders isn’t just any 360. It combines the best of the 360s with the simplicity and power of DiSC®, plus three strategies for improving the subject’s leadership effectiveness. The result is a 360 experience that’s more productive and satisfying.

How is it different?

  1. First of all we took the sting out of 360 feedback:
    For many Leaders, 360 feedback can be a frustrating experience. It allows open ended comments which can be unfocused and even unhelpful. Often these anonymous comments can be a way to take an unwarranted jab at a colleague.
    With our exclusive, selectable comments feature, “Commentsmart”, raters can give focused, balanced, constructive feedbackthat the Leader can actually use. This time saving feature allows raters to expand on their ratings by choosing from a list of highly tested comments.
  2. Secondly, we made it easier to understand and use:
    Everything DiSC® 363 for Leaders combines clear visuals and a conversational narrative style to interpret and explain the data, making the report easy to understand and use.
  3. And we answered the “Now What” Question:ED 363 rpt 253x300 363® for Leaders – A New Kind of 360 Feedback
    Everything DiSC ®363 for Leaders answers the “Now what” question by giving leaders their next steps with three things they can focus on now! Strategies that will improve their leadership effectiveness, and  that can be translated into action immediately.

By its very nature 360 feedback involves rating from several sources. In the 363 one can have unlimited raters chosen from the following groups: Manager, Direct Reports, Peers, and Others. To ensure anonymity there must be at least two raters in the Direct Reports, Peers and Others categories. On the other hand this profile is flexible enough that it can be used with just the Leader and his/her manager.

The leadership model used involves 8 leadership approaches which are listed around the perimeter of the model. Each leadership approach has three practices which are shown on the inside. For example the 3 practices for the affirming approach include:

      • Being approachable
      • Acknowledging contributions
      • Creating a positive environment

This validated leadership model is further explained in the book, “The 8 Dimensions of Leadership” (Sugerman, Scullard & Wilhelm). The authors of the book maintain that “to be an effective leader you need to know your strengths – but that is only part of the story. You also need a broad perspective on all the behaviors needed to be an effective leader.”

In Summary:

      • This profile is easy to use
      • It has been fully validated
      • Uses “Commentsmart” technology
      • Provides further direction with 3 strategies to consider
      • A coaching supplement is available at no charge
      • Uses a very flexible approach
