Sample Introduction

Thank you for agreeing to help assess the leadership behavior of [INSERT ASSESSEE NAME].

By doing so, you will provide this fellow organizational member with valuable feedback on his/her leadership development training needs.

The primary goal of this leadership assessment program is to improve our organization’s leadership. We appreciate your assistance in performing this vital task.

Free 360 Degree Feedback Leadership Assessment

We are distributing these copies of this tool to this person’s superiors, subordinates, and peers for completion.

By surveying up, down, and across (360 degrees), we can provide leaders/participants with information unobtainable from conventional assessment instruments.

Unlike some other leadership skill training and assessment tools, this activity is totally anonymous – we will not ask you for any personal information, including whether or not you are a supervisor, subordinate, or a peer.

The authors of this tool believe that anonymity facilitates honest, objective, and user-friendly feedback. As you will note, we do not include space for written comments. The authors have observed that a single written comment often serves as a major distraction from the needs-analysis process.

Sample Instructions

  1. For each behavioral scale, please circle the bullet that best reflects the behavior of [INSERT ASSESSEE NAME].


Thinks long-term


Thinks short-term

In this instance, the assessor thought that the person being assessed spends somewhat more time thinking short-term than long term.

If the evaluator had thought the individual being assessed spent about the same amount of time thinking short and long term, the evaluator would have circled the middle bullet.

A key to successful completion of this tool is to read each behavioral scale closely and then go with your first impression.

If you encounter a scale covering behavior that you have not had the opportunity to observe, simply skip that scale.
