360 Feedback for More Sales

Feedback on target2 360 Feedback for More SalesPerhaps in no other field is income related more to success than in the sales field. In most cases, the more you sell the more you make; the fewer the sales the less income you receive. Obviously then, the more we can eliminate our weaknesses and strengthen our strengths the more success we can be.

Well timed, relevant, and constructive feedback provides the greatest motivation to change. It is axiomatic that good feedback gives people the information they need to change. Why? Because feedback generates insight and a better understanding of what is currently working and what is not. Thus, given this information we are able to set priorities for our own development. These priorities can be turned into personal development plans; and the result is improved ways of operating that will enhance our sales effectiveness.

But one of the key reservations about 360 Feedback is that sometimes respondents feel safe in including “zinger” or malicious comments in their anonymous feedback. This possibility has derailed many 360 projects.

But now Inscape publishing has a new type of 360 degree instrument that has resolved most, if not all, of the problems with previous 360 instruments. The new Everything DiSC® 363™ for Leaders combines the best of the 360s with the simplicity and power of DiSC, plus three personalized strategies for improving leadership effectiveness. The result is a 360 experience that is much more productive and satisfying.
