360 degree feedback tools are one of the most common employee assessments used in both the non-profit and for-profit world -- especially for upper level management. Wikipedia describes 360 degree feedback as:

Feedback that comes from all around an employee. "360" refers to the 360 degrees in a circle, with an individual figuratively in the center of the circle. Feedback is provided by subordinates, peers,and supervisors. It also includes a self-assessment and, in some cases, feedback from external sources such as customers and suppliers or other interested stakeholders. (To learn more click here)

In 2009 Inscape Publishing released a new kind of 360 survey, called Everything DiSC 363®. It combines the best of 360s with the simplicity and power of DiSC®, plus three strategies for improving leadership effectiveness (hence, "360-three"). Plus, they developed a selectable comments feature they named CommentSmart, where raters choose from pre-written, highly-tested comments. The result is that snippy, loaded criticisms (often unrelated to the feedback asked) are eliminated creating feedback that’s focused, balanced and constructive.

The result is a 360 experience that’s more productive and satisfying. (Check out this link, http://disc363.trueazimuth.biz/, for a sample report so you can get a feel for the profile).

To kick off this product, Inscape let distributors like myself provide one 363 for each leader in an organization at no charge ($155 retail). Trouble was that I found out too late about the promotion (as did some others) and only was able to provide it to a few people in my network. Inscape responded to feedback and requests for more and a few days ago, they announced they would allow distributors to do Everything DiSC 363 for Leaders at no charge this summer!

Based on the great results I had with my initial work with this instrument I am beyond excited -- because this summer I can provide this tool for up to 5 people in each organization -- at no charge -- that's an entire executive management team! It's an incredible opportunity for clients and other people in my network.

In addition to the free profile -- a value $155 for each assessment -- I’ll provide a free one-on-one tele-coaching session – a value of $200 for each coaching session -- to go through the feedback and create an action plan for development.

This free trial is a limited time offer from Inscape, so if you know of someone who would be interested, be sure to contact me soon about next steps.
