Discounted 360° assessment

Benchmarking your Leadership competencies

For anyone wanting to develop and improve their performance, the benefits of focused personal reflection and feedback from those around you are almost universally acknowledged.

This 360° activity focuses on the six competencies identified in the ACEVO Leadership Framework that has been codeveloped with ACEVO members. These competencies are considered the most critical for leaders, those that will make the most difference in continuing to build strong and successful organisations.

The framework places particular emphasis on the inter and intra-personal skills involved in motivating, leading and inspiring others. The six competencies are:

  • Action Catalyst
  • Collaborating Connector
  • Trusted Educator
  • Inspiring Influencer
  • Visionary Persuader
  • Self care Self aware

The 360° activity provides a review process to measure against each with a comprehensive skills matrix that clarifies how each competency is expressed in day to day activity and relationships. The matric:

  • breaks each competency down into specific observable behaviours giving measurable evaluation criteria
  • identifies a set of contra behaviours for each competency
  • groups sets of behaviours across the different levels of leadership from self-leadership, through operational/team leadership, to strategic/organisational and leading the sector

This creates a useful and specific review tool for insightful self-assessment and supports more objective feedback from invited respondents.
The 360° assessments are facilitated by our partners Rita Neligan Medcalf and Kevin Downsworth of First Position Performance Development and discounted for ACEVO members.

You will complete your own self-assessment and be invited to nominate six or more people to complete the review activity.
