    Finally, a 360 for DiSC® users! It combines the best of 360s with the simplicity and power of DiSC, plus three personalized strategies for improving leadership effectiveness. The result is a 360° experience that's more productive and satisfying.

    First, we took the sting out of 360 feedback. For many leaders, 360s can be a frustrating experience. Open-ended comments can be unfocused and unhelpful and 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.

    Then, we made it easier to understand and use. Clear visuals and a conversational narrative style interpret and explain the data, making the report easy to understand and use.

    With a lot of 360s, the leader's response can be, “Now what?” Everything DiSC 363 for Leaders answers that question by giving leaders their next steps with three things they can focus on now.
