We recommend this course for HR professionals who are responsible for teambuilding, organizational development, identifying developmental and training needs, and performance assessment.
SHL’s competency tests are not only suitable for self-evaluation, but also for so-called 360-degree evaluation. This means that besides the focal person, his or her colleagues, acquaintances, or suppliers also fill out the same questionnaire about him or her. This way we find out how the person sees himself or herself, but also how others see him or her. This multifaceted result involves a lot of possibilities. It can be part of a good introduction exercise in teambuilding (especially in close-knit teams): people are often amazed at how different their environment sees them compared to their own self-image. 360-degree feedback is also a useful tool of organisational development: it is equally important for leaders and reports to face the differences between their self-evaluation and others’ opinion. This method also helps in identifying the needs before trainings and it is a great tool for performance management. Furthermore, it is very useful when the focal person himself or herself asks to define his or her areas for development. In this case, individual development and an integrated leadership culture justify the use of this method.
Participants will learn how to prepare a project with multiple assessors. We will also discuss why this tool is suitable for performance appraisal and development. We will teach participants how to interpret reports and how to use them for development.
The fee includes the possibility to participate in a 360-degree feedback, and this way the participants will get to know the method’s advantages and steps of execution not only through the examples brought up by the trainers, but through personal experience.
