What are the benefits of the threesixty°?
One of the biggest benefits of the threesixty° is that it gives you insight not only into the way people see themselves but also into how others see them. This can be quite scary, but it can reveal a lot about someone’s own development needs, which they may need support with, and can provide suggestions on the best solution such as coaching or training. This complete insight can reveal a lot about the person profiled that had not been considered before.
threesixty° is a powerful and completely customisable 360° assessment tool, used to gather meaningful feedback from a wide range of people about an individual’s working behaviours, such as people management, team working and interpersonal styles, with a view to improving them. This tool identifies the strengths and development needs of an individual, while also providing a comprehensive guide to suitable development interventions.

Support Individuals With A Detailed Psychometric Assessment
High staff turnover is a concern for many businesses. When you recruit excellent staff, you want to retain them for as long as possible. Part of that involves supporting their training and development needs to ensure that they have the skills and opportunities they deserve. When staff feel appreciated and supported in this way, they are less likely to change roles, benefitting your staff and the overall business.
For individuals looking to progress into leadership roles or anyone interested in developing their interpersonal skills, the threesixty° tool can help. By gaining a secure understanding of an individual’s working behaviours and how others perceive them, businesses can get tailored support and development plans to guide progression and ensure that your team can succeed and thrive.
threesixty° Assessment Results:
threesixty° allows you to completely tailor the details of reviews taking part. Most tools will force reviewers to be categorised as colleagues, direct reports, or managers - with threesixty° you have the ability to define whatever relationships are required, whether it is director, indirect report, or even relative!
The overall summary gives a high-level overview of the Focus' scores for each competency included in the threesixty° assessment, organised into common categories including communication, relationships and vision. This overview provides an excellent starting point for analysing an individual's strengths, potential issues and development needs.
The relationship summary describes how each group of reviewers has scored the Focus, by splitting their feedback into individual charts. Being able to see the differences in scores for each competency according to the relationship of the reviewer enables you to target any key areas or potential issues that relate to specific groups of colleagues.
A threesixty° assessment asks the reviewers to rate a variety of competencies, measured through a number of statements describing the behaviours of the focus. For each competency, you receive an in depth summary of the feedback provided by the reviewers, including a definition of the competency, anonymised comments left by the reviewers, and scores for each competency for reviewers according to their relationship to the focus. Competency summaries are a great way of gaining some in-depth detail about a focus' strengths, potential issues and development needs. threesixty° is incredibly easy to use with any of the 40+ out-of-the-box competencies available in The Psychometric Portal or, if you have developed your own competency framework, your own.
Each competency in threesixty° is measured by a number of statements, and the behaviour summary presents a breakdown of the statements that contribute to the overall score of the each competency. This is particularly useful for identifying specific strengths and development needs amongst individual behaviours, rather than more general development needs between whole competencies. It is not uncommon for an individual to perform well on a competency, but still have some development needs for specific behaviours.
Development interventions are ideal when you want to know how the focus can work towards improving their potential issues or development needs. The range and variety of interventions for all of the standard threesixty° competencies means that there is something for every learning style - whether it is reading that may aid development, potential learning and development solutions, or just simple behavioural change.
Competency Summary & Importance
These pages form an overview of the entire report, showing the average rating that each group of reviewers has given the focus of the report for all competencies. When giving feedback on the report, this is an excellent place for the facilitator to turn to first. Colour coding let's you see at a glance what the outright strengths and development needs of the focus are. On the following page is an optional indication of how important each competency is to the focus' role according to each reviewer group. Those widely considered less important might be a lower priority when it comes to any subsequent action.
An Action Planner is provided to help a facilitator arrange with the focus of the report what are appropriate next steps to take, based on what has been learned from the report. Where changes to behaviour are recommended, what concrete actions can the focus take, over what time period and how will the results be observable? Perhaps following the advice of the recommended developmental suggestions, this should form the ideal springboard for next steps.
