Perspectives Online Assessment

Perspectives is a research-based, 68 item, assessment that gives Managers an objective analysis of their Management effectiveness in 24 competencies. Perspectives is specifically designed for 360-degree feedback. The assessment helps managers identify development priorities and determine their known and unknown strengths by comparing their own self-perceptions to those of their supervisor, direct reports, and peers. Perspectives is available for administration in your organization online or with paper & pencil questionnaires. In either case, reports are computer processed and returned to whoever is designated to receive the confidential results.

This includes

  • questionnaires for all raters
  • report processing
  • Participant interpretation and development planning materials and job-aids.
