Individual Feedback and Assessment:  The participant response to the assessment survey and the data is compared to a pre-set standard selected as benchmarks for measuring acceptable level of competency in that area.

360° Feedback and Assessment:  The participants select a small group of friends, colleagues, peers, direct reports, or other candidates to respond to the same survey.  The feedback group rates the participant from their perspective against these competencies.  This provides a rich field of information that will inform the participant on areas of strength and areas for improvement.  The feedback team is limited to ten (10) participants (to be effective it is recommended to engage with a minimum of three feedback team members).
