Getting feedback from your colleagues is a great way to improve oneself quickly. SHIFT has a My360 tool that is a quick and simple way to get that feedback.
We think easy, quick and lightweight is the way to do feedback
You're often stuck between asking each colleague individually for feedback and often hearing nothing from or running a very robust and long 360 process where you and your colleagues are subjected to 30 minutes of questions and dozens of pages of a report.
We want you to get a small dose of insightful feedback with <5 minutes of effort for you to setup or your colleagues to give input.
You'll learn what your colleagues think are the most important leadership skills for your success, and how you're doing on those.
Here's what happens when you use it
Your colleagues give you feedback on the importance and performance on a bunch of leadership dimensions. They simply place 16 statements on a grid based on importance and how well you are doing. Note that you do the exact same activity to rate yourself.
You, and you alone, then see the heatmap of responses as well as the distribution of each individual responses - and how those compare to your self assessment.
You'll also receive open-text feedback from people on your team based on why they ranked you high/low on certain statements, and any other feedback they have for you.
Once everyone has completed the exercise you'll be able to see the results. Of particular importance is to notice where your answers differed from those of your teammates (as these are often blindspot areas).
Sounds Good! How do I set things up?
- To get started, just go to your My 360 page. (If you don't already have an account you can still click the link above - we'll prompt you to create an account). You can always come back to this page by clicking on the "Myself" tab at the top of the screen.
- Click on the big blue "Start a New My 360" button.
3. Select the template you want to use (you can preview the statements of each template beforehand), and then click "Next"
4. Now you have access to the link that colleagues will follow to give you the feedback. You can either copy that link and send a personal email to request their input with the URL included, or you can add their email address into our system and we'll send the note for you.
If you opt for us to send the note you'll see the email first and can make edits before sending. Either way they'll end up on a page that looks like the first image above (with the drag-and-drop stickies).
5. That's it! The last step is to check back to your My360 page at a later date. As responses come in, you'll be able to close the activity and View Results, and here's a sample copy of what a results page looks like.
As you're looking at the results, we encourage you to reach out to us for our insights to get an idea of what we notice and our recommended next steps. And if you're stuck on something while setting up, reach out to us through the little blue chat button in the bottom right corner! We'd love to hear from you.
Getting in-depth feedback including reasons why people are responding the way they are is crucial for development. Draw inspiration from these guys:
