360 Feedback Coaching
360 degree feedback coaching is the part of the process that can result in transformational shifts and sustained change.
It’s where you get your return on investment too, if it’s done well. Using a skilled, experienced coach to facilitate a 360 feedback session pays huge dividends.
Our team are experienced and skilled 360 feedback coaches who enable participants to make links and see themes from their 360 feedback report. This ensures that strengths are recognised and built upon as well as development areas. We balance support with challenge to help participants get the most from the 360 feedback, to focus on the feedback priorities and to build a plan of action.
Most importantly, we enable them to feel energised and engaged with the process of change and development.
The most effective 360 Degree Feedback Coaching
Our years of experience have shown us the approach to 360 degree feedback coaching that delivers the best results for our clients. We recommend that just two 360 feedback coaching sessions are needed to support 360 degree feedback participants to get the most from the process.
360 feedback – Session 1
This session introduces the 360 feedback report and sets the context for the discussion. Helping the participant to clarify what they want to achieve creates motivation and shapes the meeting. We help the client to explore the report, make sense of the data and start to find patterns. Throughout the meeting, we’re there to support, make links and facilitate thinking and reflection.
Participants report that this meeting is powerful, thought-provoking and engaging.
360 feedback – Session 2
The danger of having just one session is that the participant can be overwhelmed by the volume of feedback and in need of time to process it. Of course, back in the frenetic day to day activities, even with the best of intentions, the move to action never quite makes it to the top of the To Do list.
Session 2 deals with this. It requires less time that the first coaching session and can often be done via telephone. The purpose is to enable the participant to reflect on their insights and learning from the 360 degree feedback report. Then, crucially, it’s about building a plan of action, what support is needed and what the priorities are. Finally, next steps are agreed.
This second session, so often overlooked in organisations in the interests of time, can make all the difference to embedding real change as a result of the 360 degree feedback process
Building internal 360 Degree Feedback Coaching skills
We want to leave clients with tools and skills to continue the work we’ve done together. We also recognise that clients don’t always have the budget to use external 360 coaches for all their needs. Many of our clients ask us to provide feedback coaching to the senior leaders in their organisation and train their team to deliver coaching to other management groups.
We provide 360 degree feedback training, coaching and support to HR teams and other internal leaders and managers. This enables them to facilitate powerful and transformational 360 feedback conversations.
There are a number of benefits to this approach. Firstly, costs are reduced, enabling a wider application of 360 degree feedback in your organisation. Our training builds capability and confidence in skills that can be used more broadly than just 360 feedback.
Finally, clients report that relationships are strengthened across the organisation and visibility of talent is enhanced.
