360° Leadership Appraisal

A 360° appraisal is a process whereby an individual receives feedback on their performance from a number of individuals who regularly interact with the person being reviewed.


Feedback can be provided by team members, employees, colleagues, trustees, and even external partners. Respondents remain anonymous and their data is aggregated to encourage the respondents to provide balanced feedback, including constructive criticism.


The objective is to provide leaders with feedback on their behaviours, evaluating performance outcomes, as well as identifying potential, and establishing development goals.


ACOSVO have developed a 360° Leadership Appraisal to support leadership development in the third sector.


What does the ACOSVO 360° Leadership Appraisal service involve?

The ACOSVO 360° Leadership Appraisal captures the ‘core job behaviours’ based on the ACOSVO Leadership Excellence Framework, with the aim of bringing about change and development for the individuals taking part.


You can access the programme at one of three separate levels, each providing a different amount of support throughout your 360° journey.


The ACOSVO 360° leadership appraisal is primarily designed for use with the Chief Officer, but could be adapted for use with the Chair and/or senior management team. If this is of interest, contact us and we can develop a package to suit your needs.
