Abstract

This study examined the extent to which changes in leader behavior 1 year after a 360-degree feedback intervention related to changes in employee attitudes. Participants were 145 leaders and their subordinates, peers, and manager. The results indicated that improved subordinate ratings of the leader on consideration, performance orientation, and employee development related to increased subordinate engagement and satisfaction as well as reduced intentions to leave following 360-degree feedback to leaders. This study demonstrates that improved leader behavior following 360-degree feedback is related to improved employee attitudes.
