We all have a perception about our leadership style. Do others in your congregation share your view? Is there a gap between your perception and theirs? A 360-Degree Feedback tool helps you obtain honest feedback from those whom you lead and with whom you work. You, your president and key leadership, and I will select members of the staff, board, and congregational membership to participate in a confidential internet feedback survey. Your responses are compared to all the other respondents in an extensive interpretative report. This feedback can create enhanced lines of communication and relationships between the participant and the Temple leadership. This is an excellent tool to use after the successful completion of a new contract, as part of a mutual commitment to ongoing professional development.
Each 360-degree feedback questionnaire can be customized for your role on the leadership team and the specific needs of your congregation. All participants respond to the identical questions about your leadership, vision, communication with staff, board members, and congregational membership. Focus areas can be on pulpit style, teaching style, administrative skills, supervision of staff, conflict management, community relations and time management.
At the conclusion of the report, specific suggestions are made for enhancing your leadership performance. This data becomes very beneficial in designing your professional development plan. It can be used as a cornerstone in our coaching work.
