The 360 consists of a detailed assessment, which is completed by individuals and their colleagues, to evaluate an individual’s leadership qualities and provide insight into that individual’s leadership effectiveness and potential. Insight from the 360 allows one to establish a leadership development plan with specific learning goals and the actions to take to achieve those goals.

You may be using the Torch Leadership Assessment, which consists of three primary leadership domains and numerous sub-domains, or your organization may have worked with Torch to customize your domains and questions.

The purpose of this article is to provide a high-level overview of the entire 360 process—beginning when a participant receives an invitation to participate through gathering feedback from colleagues and reviewing/debriefing the 360 results with an expert.
