Top Questions

1 . How to remove biases from the feedback system?

Biases can be minimized by having a wider set of feedback providers. Having not just seniors but also peers, colleagues from other functions, juniors and even clients providing feedback helps minimize bias in the entire process.

2 . How can one use 360-degree feedback in conjunction with other tools effectively?

360-degree feedback can be used in conjunction with other tools by understanding what part of the entire process does 360-degree feedback fit in. For example, in Hi-Potential Identification, we can use the 9-Box model (where performance and potential are marked on both axes). The performance axis can be taken from the 360-degree part(either in whole or in part), and an assessment center can be used for the potential part. This is just one-use case, but it can be similarly combined for other use cases as well.

3 . How do you norm 360-degree for a national culture where a VERY HIGH focus is placed on maintaining smooth relations? Despite promises of anonymity, input providers water down their input.

The best way to go about it would be to plan for feedback across multiple points in time and using the first one as a base to understand how the ticker has moved. Hence, even if the providers are watering down some of the input, any improvements in the next cycle can be well measured. In addition, the leadership needs to work on a culture where any negative feedback is not taken as a deterrent or as a failure but just as a means to improve everyone.
