4 Assessment is part of Wood Badge Help choose leadership styles. Informal assessment during PLC’s –How are we doing?” –“How are you feeling?” Patrol Project Assessments You will be given the opportunity to assess this Wood Badge course 4

5 Good Self-Assessment Comes from Others We assess ourselves all the time –We measure against others –Measure against standards BUT, we are limited by our own perspective, history and background We tend to see things the way we want to see them, instead of how the way things actually are. We need feedback from others 5

6 Tips for Receiving Feedback Seek out feedback. It will nearly always provide you with information that will in some way help you improve your performance. Listen carefully. Receiving feedback requires a heightened awareness of yourself and of the person offering the feedback. Listen actively. Restate the feedback in your own words so that the speaker knows that the message you are receiving is the same as the one the speaker intended to send. Listen emphatically. Put feedback in its proper context by observing the speaker’s body language, tone of voice, and emotions. Consider the speaker’s reasons for offering feedback. 6

7 Tips (continued) Notice how you feel when someone offers you feedback. Becoming angry or defensive can cloud your ability to listen effectively. Consider feedback to be a gift. It truly is. 7

8 Giving Feedback Tips 8 Consider your motives. Feedback should always be helpful. Otherwise, there is no reason to offer it. Find out if the other people involved are open to receiving feedback. Listen carefully, then rephrase what they are saying to be sure you Understand them. Deal only with behavior that can be changed. Deal with specifics, not generalities. Describe the behavior; do not evaluate it.

9 Giving Feedback (cont) Let the other person know the impact the behavior has on you. Use an “I” statement to accept responsibility for your own perceptions and emotions. To make sure the recipients of feedback have understood your message in the way you intended it, ask them to rephrase what they heard you say. You can give caring feedback without a good technique, but the slickest technique in the world will not hide a lack of caring. 9

10 10 Good leaders constantly seek feedback. They always want to learn more about where they are and how they can more effectively move forward. One of the best ways for us as leaders to encourage effective feedback is by developing and using a 360-degree assessment. Feedback and Leadership

11 360° Assessment From the people you report to, or are accountable to – “Boss” or “customers” From the people that you work with – Peers and coworkers From the people who report to you –Workers, “underlings” All these people are “stakeholders” 11

12 360° Assessment Steps Determine goals to be assessed Find a facilitator Develop an assessment survey Identify representative stakeholders Facilitator compiles and shares results Make assessments ongoing 12

13 Developing Assessment Survey Clear instructions to stakeholders Questions based on your goals Feedback from what observed and can be measured Simple answers –“Way to Go”, “Way to Grow” –Start, Stop, Continue –Green, Red, Yellow Comments and suggestions encouraged 13

14 Self Assessment is a Tool for Change Leads to positive change Helps others see importance of assessment Helps you value giving & getting feedback Good 360° assessments help people discover differences between how they perceive themselves and how others perceive them. 14
