Invest in Meaningful Feedback
Companies invest a lot of money in the people who manage others. Why not give them regular feedback to help them improve their performance? For example, if a company is paying a manager $75,000 per year, why not spend an extra $150 each year to give him or her specific, actionable feedback? With the G360 Manager Survey, people almost ALWAYS get something they can use to improve their performance.
- Make 360 feedback a part of your company’s culture
- Everyone should have something they’re working on
- Direct reports are often the most important yet overlooked source of feedback
Nissan Case Study
A senior manager at the Nissan Corporation was interested in getting feedback to help him improve his leadership skills so he contacted G360 Talent Development to begin the process. The assessment was easy to launch and before he knew it he was getting detailed and actionable feedback from his direct reports, peers and supervisor. The feedback he received was both eye opening and extremely helpful. Sometimes we just don’t know how we might be coming across to others. Before long, he wanted his assistant managers to go through the process as well. Each time the feedback came back with new insights and included suggestions for improvement.
Because the process was so helpful on a personal level and within his team, the manager recommended that all the managers at his location go through the process. And that’s exactly what happened. Over 100 engineers at their North American Technical Center voluntarily took the G360 Manager Survey. The HR department was so committed to using the tools for developmental purposes that they didn’t even want to see the results. They wanted to guarantee to the participants that the feedback was only for them and for their benefit. After the managers got their feedback, the HR director confirmed that it had been a great project and will continue to partner with G360 Talent Development in the future.
