  • Everything DiSC 363® for Leaders

    For many leaders, 360s can be a frustrating experience. At best, open-ended comments can be unfocused and unhelpful. At worst, they’re a way to anonymously take a jab at a colleague. And ultimately, they can even derail the learning process. With our exclusive selectable comments feature, CommentSmart, raters can give focused, balanced, constructive feedback—that the leader can actually use. This time-saving option allows raters to expand on their ratings by choosing from a list of highly-tested comments.

    With a lot of 360s, the leader’s response can be, “Now what?” Everything DiSC 363 for their next steps with the three things they can focus on now—strategies to improve their leadership effectiveness that can be put into action immediately. It's 360 done right.
