Customised 360 Assessment
We use 360s at the beginning and end of the coaching relationship to help analyse progress.
At Stratus Consulting we customise 360 questionnaires based on the current leadership role the individual holds. Our 360 also gathers qualitative data specifically for use in a coaching context.
How does it work?
There are three stages in our 360 process:
- Questionnaires are completed – face-to-face or online – by your line manager, colleagues, direct reports and sometimes even customers (or other stakeholders)
- This information is then collated into a report
- The report is discussed with the participant and action plans are agreed to address issues raised
How does it help you as a leader?
360-degree feedback helps you discover how you’re perceived by others. It builds self awareness of your personal effectiveness, and raises important questions and choices, namely:
- What am I doing well and should continue doing?
- What should I stop doing?
- What could I do differently?
Other Profiling Tools
We use a variety of other profiling tools to assess either a client’s current competence and skill in various areas or to assess their preferred styles in various areas. Some examples of profiling tools we use are:
Stress Map – assesses an individuals stress strengths and vulnerabilities, detects burnout zones and charts new strategies for enhancing personal health and overall performance.
Resilience Map – explores an individual’s resiliency demands, assets and current levels of functioning by pinpointing their strengths and vulnerabilities, detecting areas of caution and strain, and assists them to chart new strategies for enhancing personal health and overall performance.
EQ Map – assists an individual to discover the many facets that make up their personal emotional intelligence and its relationship to their performance, creativity and success.
Disc Profile – a quick, accessible behaviour assessment. It provides insight into an individual’s style and will predict likely future behaviour. It does this by evaluating four key factors in an individual style – rather than the sixteen or more that are often seen in full personality tests. As a result, DISC is more accessible than many personality profiles.
MBTI Profile – assesses an individual’s psychological type based four key areas of preference – their energy orientation, how they take in information, how they form judgements and make decisions and how they relate to the outside world. Useful for understanding an individual’s preferences and for enhancing team work when administered to a team through understanding others preferences.
Kouzes and Posner Leadership Practices Inventory – assesses their leadership practices against 5 key areas – Challenging the Process, Inspiring a Shared Vision, Enabling Others to Act, Modelling the Way and Encouraging the Heart.
Belbin’s Team Types – assesses Executives’ preferred styles in teams.
Psychometric Testing – we can administer a variety of ability and personality tests using the OPRA tools.
