360 Review Questions

360 Survey Owl

We have a vast database of effective 360 review questions, covering all aspects of management and team activity and behaviours. This can help you focus quickly on the questions that your organisation needs to include in your 360 questionnaire, and make sure that you ask them in the most effective way.

Asking the right questions lies right at the heart of effective 360 feedback. There always more questions that you'd like to find out about than can reasonably be included, so really careful selection is vital. Too many questions and you lose the quality and quantity of the comments being fed back. It's also important to avoid ambiguous questions that cover more than one action or behaviour, or questions that ask about things that people can't actually observe.

For example, "Delivers high quality solutions on time" is a bad 360 review question. It is actually two quite different questions, one about timeliness and one about quality, which could produce two quite different scores.

Here are a few examples of good, specific and observable questions that our clients often find useful:

1. Actively listens to the ideas and opinions of others

2. Achieves deadlines and delivers on time

3. Communicates a clear vision for the team

4. Encourages others to learn and develop their skills

5. Will make unpopular decisions when necessary
