360º Feedback: Questions Regarding Strengths and Development
by Claudette Nowell-PhilippQuestions regarding identified strengths:
·Which of my highest rated skills are motivated strengths? (I do well and enjoy using this skill.) Which of my highest rated skills would I prefer to minimize in my current or future positions.
·Who else, aside from my feedback providers, knows these are my best skills? Who else in the organization would benefit from knowing this about me?
·How can I proactively manage my professional reputation? What projects or assignments might enable me to showcase my skills, provide greater organizational value-add, or increase my visibility?
·Aside from my current job, what other positions are a “good fit” with my best technical skills and business competencies?
·Are my motivated strengths clearly communicated in my current resume? If not, how can I edit my career summary and/or accomplishment statements to more effectively mirror these strengths?
·Have I developed an engaging “sound bite” that verbally communicates my best skills and experience when making first-time introductions? How can my 360º Feedback data help me in developing my “sound bite?”
·Can I back up my 360º Feedback data with job related examples? When interviewing, do I use behavioral stories that provide clear and credible examples that support my resume and stated skills?
Questions regarding development or improvement areas:
·Is there an identifiable pattern with my lowest rated skills?
·Are there any surprises? In light of my current performance goals and responsibilities, are any of these development areas in need of immediate action? What are the risks if I decide to take no action?
·Which of my development areas operate as barriers and negatively impact my performance or career opportunities? What action should I take to eliminate these barriers?
·How can I minimize the requirement for this skill in my current and/or future positions?
·Do I have development blind spots? (e.g. others consistently rate me lower than I rate myself). What might be the cause? How are they affecting my job performance, reputation, and future career opportunities? How motivated am I to address these blind spots? What action can I take?
