360-Degree Feedback Program: Infuses Transformative Power into Leadership Journey

'We had recently started the 360-Degree Feedback debriefing process for our learners from a renowned MNC. The reports were being well-received, as our learners had found the results to be meaningful and beneficial for their leadership development. We believe in the power of feedback to unlock potential and elevate performance. Our 360-Degree Feedback Program goes beyond traditional evaluations by providing a holistic view of an individual's strengths and areas for development from multiple perspectives. Key benefits are:

1) Increasing self-awareness: gain a deeper understanding of individual behaviours, and how they are perceived by others.

2) Identifying areas for development: can pinpoint any development stoppers which hinder their growth and success.

3) Facilitating goal setting: help setting clear and achievable goals for their personal and professional development.

4) Enhancing development effectiveness: improve development effectiveness. By leveraging the insights gained from the feedback process, participants can make meaningful changes to their behavior, communication, and decision-making.

By focusing on key development areas and providing actionable feedback, our program enables individuals to accelerate their growth and drive positive change in their organizations.

Stimulating understanding, communication and problem solving:

The Value-based Goal Setting Program by using LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® (“LSP”) was designed for 40 insurers from an international insurance company. Being an insurer that customers can trust goes beyond the technical elements of risk management, and extends to how to listen and talk to customers from the point of sale to the time when claims are filed. LSP involves intensive exchange of ideas among each other. This exchange always creates a lot of feelings and enthusiasm. Our facilitators don’t have all the answers. The workshop outcome depends on hearing all the voices from inside the room. As the workshop progressed, all participants had gotten a glimpse of teammates’ personality quirks and were able to relate to each other better. The biggest outcome of the learning session was stimulating understanding, communication and, problem solving which then created an environment with insight, confidence and commitment.
