Below is an example of the introductory letter that would accompany this exercise, followed by a summary of the content:
CHARTING PROGRESS – THE ‘360 DEGREE ESTIMATED POSITION’
Introduction – ‘Feedback is the Food of Champions’
A key part to any development programme is the available feedback that helps us check ‘where we have got to’, or your EP –Estimated Position. We need to take stock occasionally to see if we are making progress towards the goals we have set ourselves, and to see if they are still relevant.
The entire focus of the 360 degree EP is to provide supportive and constructive feedback to our colleagues so that they can continue to move forward both as individuals and team members.
There is always a link between this feedback and the competencies of our current role. In fact, this exercise will help you and your colleagues to create and enhance the plans for personal development and growth.
Instructions – an example is provided.
Enclosed you will find 360 EP questionnaires for yourself, and sufficient for you to complete one for each member of the team on your current programme.
Please write your own name on one of the questionnaires, and simply tick the boxes next to each of the statements marked ‘SELF’ in terms of how you feel about your own current status.
Now, for each of your team members, add their name to a form and tick the boxes provided in terms of how you see their contribution now to the team. REMEMBER – this is about supporting their development and providing honest feedback that they would value ! Wherever you can, use the ‘Comments’ column to add an example of the behaviour or activity that would provide more understanding to the individual.
Return all the forms in the Reply Paid envelope provided.
What Happens Next
Each person will receive a feedback sheet with all the scores consolidated.
The feedback will be anonymous so that you will not know who said what, and of course your sheet will include how you rated yourself for comparison.
This feedback will be used at your 1 to 1 sessions to contribute to your Coaching Agenda.
At a future Workshop, with your agreement, we will share some of the outputs with the team to assist in building support and understanding.
Thank You and Good Luck
