The book objectively considers such crucial components of 360° feedback as organizational culture and performance, pros and cons, the impact on the individual employee, and whether the feedback should be used for evaluative or developmental purposes. Models and tables lend a visual dimension to the book's concepts. Sample surveys and feedback reports--including the authors' own TEAM-Q survey and report set--show you what types of questions to ask and how to present feedback most effectively. If your comp any is considering adopting its own 360° feedback program, don't start before you read this book!
