Discover your leadership’s hidden strengths and challenges.

Our Leadership 360 evaluation has been an integral part of Leading Edge’s CEO Onboarding and Leading Executives programs. Now, for the first time, we’re offering the Leadership 360 to alumni of a variety of Leading Edge programs as a stand-alone leadership development tool. Senior-most leaders at Jewish nonprofits can participate in a Leadership 360 process, along with two hours of executive coaching.

WHAT

The Leadership 360 is a personalized reflection tool created through self-assessment and feedback from your colleagues and partners, for a multifaceted perspective of your Leadership Competencies. We gather input, from you and from other people you select, using an online survey comprised of multiple-choice and open-ended questions and compile that feedback into a confidential and individualized report for you. (An example of a Leadership 360 report can be found here.) As part of the program, you will also receive two one-hour virtual sessions with an executive coach to carefully review your results, understand possible implications, and formulate a plan for growing in your leadership. 

WHY

A comprehensive 360-degree evaluation helps you understand and develop your leadership. Taking dedicated time to complete a self-assessment offers a valuable opportunity for high-level self-reflection, and additional feedback from your staff, board members, and external partners offers invaluable outside perspectives as well. The Leadership 360 process can reveal aspects of your strengths as a leader, along with challenges and opportunities to grow, that you may not otherwise have learned.

WHO

The Leadership 360 will be most meaningful for you if: 

  • You are the senior-most leader in your Jewish nonprofit organization, whether your title is CEO, President, Executive Director, or something else
  • You are an alum of one of a Leading Edge/former Boardified program such as Leading Partners, Leading Teams, CEO Onboarding, the Board Member Institute, Unraveling the Boardian Knot, After Survey Action workshops, OR your organization has taken either the Employee Engagement Survey or CEO survey
  • You have not completed a Leadership 360 in 2 years OR you have been in a new role for at least 1 year 
  •  You have a minimum of 2 direct reports

While you may not fully meet one of these criteria, if you believe that the Leadership 360 assessment could offer value to you, we invite you to contact our Leadership Programs team to explore the possibilities: leadprograms@leadingedge.org.

FAQs

What format is the Leadership 360 in?

The Leadership 360 is a personalized reflection tool created through self-assessment and survey feedback from your colleagues and partners, for a multifaceted perspective of your Leadership Competencies. The final report compares your self-assessment and ratings from internal and external colleagues, as well as compiling open-ended comments.

This tool has been designed in-house by Leading Edge to align with the specific needs of the Jewish nonprofit sector. This tool is not available elsewhere. 

How will I participate in the Leadership 360 process?

You will:  

  • attend an orientation call,  
  • invite respondents to complete the Leadership 360 survey about you,  
  • complete your own self-assessment,  
  • meet with your executive coach.  

The Leading Edge team will be here to answer questions every step of the way. 

Is the Leadership 360 a performance review?

The Leadership 360 is a tool for self-reflection and is not meant to be any kind of test or performance review. The Leadership 360 is for you, not a third party, and we will not publish or share your results with your board or anyone else besides you and your assigned coach.

Who do you share the Leadership 360 report with?

Besides Leading Edge staff, only you and your assigned coach will be sent the final report. From there, you are welcome to share it with anyone else you like, or to keep it confidential. 

How is confidentiality maintained?

We maintain confidentiality for CEOs by only sharing their reports with them and their assigned coaches. Coaches will keep the specifics of what is discussed in coaching sessions confidential, only sharing high-level themes with the Leading Edge staff. 

We maintain confidentiality for respondents by averaging their scores into categories that are only broken out if there are three or more respondents in a given category. The specific list of those who have completed the survey is not shared with the CEO.  

Data is processed and stored in accordance with our Privacy Policy.  

What if the respondents are not familiar with all aspects of my leadership?

Respondents don’t have to be familiar with every aspect of your leadership and work to give helpful feedback. We have a “not observed” option that lets respondents skip any questions that they don’t have enough information to answer. 

What can I expect during the coaching session?

You will be matched with one of Leading Edge’s coaches who is familiar with the Leadership 360 and experienced in the Jewish nonprofit sector. You will have two hours of virtual coaching sessions that you may use however is agreed upon between the two of you. Coaches will keep the specifics of what is discussed in coaching sessions confidential, only sharing high-level themes with the Leading Edge staff.
