Behavioural Development for Leaders

We are very excited about the recent release of the McQuaig 360 Leadership Review. Our clients tell us how this tool is a great way to review, not score, their leaders.

“The quality of a leader is reflected in the standards they set themselves” – Ray Kroc

Traditional 360 Surveys leave an individual with vast array of numbers. In my previous experience we were typically given several scores for an array of competencies. We were then set a target to make an improvement in these numbers over a period of 12 months.

Something like: “For competency x you scored 4.2. Lets set you a target of getting that to 4.5 over the next 12 months.”

I remember being struck by the lack of direction on ‘how’ exactly I was to achieve this and ‘what’ exactly about this particular competency required my attention. My frustration was compounded when these numbers were linked to my bonus … sigh …

The McQuaig 360 Leadership Review is different. You can see the difference yourself:

The real bonus is that the McQuaig Word Survey® links to the feedback. This gives our Word Survey users valuable insights into their behavioural strengths and how these might influence their feedback. This layer of detail forms the basis for rich discussion on what is realistic, and encourages practical actions that the leader themselves have created.
