The Integral Leadership and Management 360° Profile

Our Integral 360° profiles have been used by over 5,000 Australian executives, managers and supervisors over the last 15 years. Developed and researched by Integral Development and Dr Ron Cacioppe, our range of Integral 360° tools are based on the Integral framework which has been widely acclaimed as one of the most relevant system theories for the 21st century. The profiles are a skill and behavioural based 360° feedback process designed to help senior executives and managers with their professional and personal development.

What is 360° feedback?

The primary purpose of 360° feedback is to assist individuals to understand their strengths and areas for improvement, and to contribute insights into aspects of their work that need development. Research has demonstrated that 360° feedback is a powerful process in achieving developmental outcomes as you receive a more rounded and reliable assessment of your leadership and managerial effectiveness.

360° feedback is a method and a tool that provides participants with the opportunity to receive performance feedback from their manager and colleagues. The term 360° refers to seeking feedback from people all around you – above you, at the same level and below you.

360° feedback helps individuals to understand how their effectiveness as an employee, co-worker or staff member is viewed by others. The feedback provides insight about the skills and behaviours that measure effective leadership and the desired skills important to the accomplishment of the purpose, vision, goals and values of the organisation.

Who has used the LMP?

The Integral 360° instruments have been used by a wide range of private organisations such as Monadelphous, MDA National, Amana Living, National Lifestyle Villages and public sector agencies such as the Department of Industry and Resources, WA Police and Fire and Emergency Services.

Coaching

Research shows that 360° feedback combined with ongoing coaching is one of the most effective methods of leadership development. Our 360° profiles are generally bundled with a 1.5 hour coaching session and we suggest three to five coaching sessions following the 360° feedback process to provide the most benefit. We have over 15 coaches, one of the largest team of coaches in Western Australia, all our coaches are highly experienced and come from diverse backgrounds in the corporate, government and not for profit sector.

The Integral 360° Process

A 360° feedback process can be used with individual managers, incorporated into management development programs, or rolled out as a development initiative throughout the company. The online surveys take 15 to 20 minutes to complete and we recommend allowing 4 weeks for all participants and their raters to complete them. We recommend the following process to maximise the benefits of using the 360° feedback process:

  1. Customisation of questions (if relevant).
  2. Group introduction to the 360° process.
  3. Online collection of data and compilation of feedback reports.
  4. Group debrief session and feedback of results / reports.
  5. Individual debrief session with personal coach.
  6. Follow-up coaching sessions to facilitate personal and professional development (optional).
  7. Re-conduct 360° review a year later to assess progress (optional).

The Integral Leadership and Management Framework

The Integral 360° profiles are based on the Integral Leadership & Management Framework developed by Dr. Ron Cacioppe after reviewing 30 years of research on leadership and management. At the core of this framework is Ken Wilber’s Integral Theory. The four quadrants translate into people leadership, transformational / visionary leadership, task / performance management, and strategic goal management and incorporate the skills and behaviours of individuals, teams and organisations in terms of contemporary leadership and management. The Integral framework is flexible and can be customised to include specific competencies for an organisation’s particular strategic challenges.

What will the feedback consist of?

The Integral 360° report consists of a number of graphs based upon the Integral Framework that summarise the feedback for each participant as follows:

  • Uses a 10 point scale shown by research to be more effective in 360° measurements.
  • Individual feedback reports summarising the assessment data into strengths & weaknesses.
  • Four major functions that define leadership and management effectiveness.
  • Eight key leadership and management roles.
  • Thirty-two specific skills and abilities associated with leadership and management effectiveness.
  • Twelve Authentic Self skills that are the foundation for successful leadership.
  • A summary of the skills and behaviours for which you score highest and those for which you score lowest.
  • Open comments made by raters.
  • A development workbook to assist in deciding action steps to implement your personal development plan.
