Expected Duration
60 minutes

By gathering information from many different people, a 360-degree appraisal gives a complete portrait of behavior on the job – one that looks at people from multiple perspectives. This type of appraisal incorporates feedback from peers, managers, customers, and direct reports, as well as from the appraisee. And when feedback from all these sources is presented in a way that enables people to plan for improvement, it can bring about real, measurable changes in people’s behavior. This course provides an overview of the steps involved in carrying out a 360-degree appraisal. It then focuses on two key steps: gathering feedback and delivering the feedback. Materials designed to support blended learning activities aligned with this course are available from the Resources Page.
