Everything DiSC® 363™ for Leaders

Are you a business coach or an internal training and development professional that uses a 360° feedback process for professional development of your clients?  In general, I like the 360 process and have had good luck implementing them for clients.  However, it’s not all peachy-keen. A few of the “beefs” I have with the process is:

  • The written comments from some raters are not constructive, are poorly written or are just plain snarky.
  • It takes too long to complete a response form—sometimes up to 2 hours!
  • Some of the 360 reports are too hard to interpret, or are an endless list of numerical ratings with little interpretive narrative.

I just finished up an informational webinar offered by Inscape Publishing to its authorized distributors (of which I’m one) on an exciting new product they are launching July 13, 2010. It’s a 360° feedback tool for leaders called Everything DiSC® 363™ for Leaders.

“363” = 360 process + 3 personalized strategies to improve leadership effectiveness.

Granted, I have a reason promote this tool*, but here are a few ways this new tool addresse the issues listed above.

  • Even though the research is based on the DiSC model, readers don’t need to have a knowledge base of the DiSC model. The report feedback has a unique, stand-alone leadership model that stands apart from the DiSC model. So, if your company uses another “styles” program, you can still use this tool for professional development.
  • It takes the “sting” out of traditional 360 feedback, by offering a proprietary “CommentSmart™” tool—a library of constructively worded comments in a pull-down menu that raters can choose from.
  • It doesn’t take a lifetime to respond to the online form: It only takes 20- 30 minutes for the leaders and 15-20 minutes for raters to respond.
  • It’s been heavily field-tested with 500 leaders and 3000+ raters.

This is hot-off-the-press information; I just finished the webinar 15 minutes ago.  If you are interested in learning more, check out the following resources and or/email me: jmiller@people-equation.com:
