The comprehensive guide to 360-degree feedback from the Center for Creative Leadership

In the network economy, growing intellectual capital is the key to increasing market value. In Maximizing, Tornow, London, and their associates demonstrate the power of 360-degree feedback for developing managers, renewing organizations, and building learning cultures. Drawing on years of experience and state-of-the-art research, the authors have crafted a highly useful and practical book which provides us with a thorough understanding of this invaluable organizational tool.

--Leo Burke, director, College of Leadership and Transcultural Studies, Motorola University

Despite the burgeoning popularity of 360-degree feedback for rating work performance, few people have a detailed understanding of how it can be used to enhance, even maximize, individual and organizational development. This standard-setting manual draws on the twenty-eight-year expertise the Center for Creative Leadership brings to the subject to give HR managers, consultants, and systems designers the big-picture guidance they need to determine if 360-degree feedback is right for their organization and, if so, to implement it.

Readers will discover how they can use 360-degree feedback as a tool for achieving a variety of objectives such as communicating performance expectations, setting developmental goals, establishing a learning culture, and tracking the effects of organizational change. Comprehensive guidelines show how 360-degree feedback can be designed to maximize employee involvement, self-determination, and commitment. Includes case examples and a bevy of instructive instruments.
