DIY 360⁰ Feedback

A short Pearl this week as I’m off hitting some golf balls in the gorgeous Ayrshire countryside. Ah Ayrshire…birthplace of Robert Burns.

“Oh wad some power the giftie gie us, to see oursels as ithers see us!”

He’s clearly talking about 360⁰ FEEDBACK. This is the process whereby your leadership skills are assessed by all those around you, not just your boss. So your team get a say. And your peers. And all your stakeholders. 

It can be enervating but, for those who are big enough, enlightening.

This is an example of the type of questions your boss, peers etc would be asked about you: click here for a wee look – 360 degrees.

What do you think they’d say about you? Because they’re already saying it! Go on, don’t be a timorous beastie.

    Hello Mark,

    Good morning. I sincerely hope you and your family are well. As for yourself, I strongly believe you’re in good shape, and working hard and smart to develop your business. With your focus, tenacity and determination, I am confident there will breakthrough and realisation.

    Once again, another very interesting piece of article that re-inforces, refreshes and strengthens the importance of leadership in organisations/businesses today – if leaders are to successfully cope with the challenges of the 21st century global marketplace, and produce tangible results plus record excellent performance.

    As I perused your brief, I was particularly delighted to note the emphases that – leadership is a difficult task and the leader(s) must be prepared to embrace life-long learning – espacially cope with our dynamic and innovative world of today.

    Hopefully, on your return from your championship golf tournament, we shall share some perspectives or ideas. I love the Scottish expressions or words. Can I learn some more, to add to what I knew already?. Those words sounded very familiar. Please add some more next time.

    Words of wisdom as aye Mark. Enjoy whacking and walking. Say hello to our homeland for me :)
    Ever Positive,
    (Anthony, Eilidh is a Gaelic name add to your awareness of the Scottish tongue – it is translates to Helen and means ‘light.’ It’s Ceilidh, which is a dance, without the ‘C’)

    Thanks for your comments Eilidh and Anthony…just back now with sunburn…it’s been 7 or 8 times now I’ve had the joy of the annual long weekend of golf in Troon and as always sunburn is a bigger problem than getting soaked.

    I don’t have any insightful comments on your posts as I am REALLY tired…but thank you again for your comments. The Wee Claret Jug, the trophy I was playing for, is mine again…job done.
