HR Domains (Career GPS): Function Management; Employee Relations; Performance and Rewards; HR Leadership; Organizational Design and Development

85% of Fortune 500 organizations use multi-rater feedback (360s) as a central part of Recertification Pointstheir leadership development program. However, 360s are developing negative reputations in many organizations as participants find the experience is negative and punishing rather than an enhancing and building process. A growing number of leaders are coming to view the process as a waste of time and money. Some are downright damaging.

Jim Clemmer will draw the key lessons learned from Zenger Folkman's solidly researched and highly successful 360 approach used by Marriott, Harvard Business School, Wells Fargo, Coca Cola, General Mills, and ConocoPhillips. Jim's previous company, The Achieve Group, built on Zenger Miller's leadership development programs to become Canada's largest training company. Jim and Jack's organizations are working together again with The CLEMMER Group as Zenger Folkman's Canadian Strategic Partner.

Executive Briefing Objectives:
  • Outline compelling research correlating a leader’s effectiveness and organizational success.
  • Demonstrate the need for validated, research-based 360-degree assessments.
  • Explain how poor rating scales lead to false positives that reduces desire for improvement.
  • Show why validated items drive substantial and lasting organizational change.
  • Prove how a strengths-based methodology is twice as effective as traditional development methods.
