Open Badge Information

Open Badge: SSSC 23 Things Leadership – Thing 4: What do others say about my leadership?


360 degree assessment is a process in which you rate your own performance in a particular context and ask people who know you well in a work capacity to rate your performance too.  These feedback tools are designed to help you reflect on your leadership capability and identify your strengths and areas for development.


This is a tool for frontline workers and a separate tool for managers. Guidance on how to use the tools is provided throughout. If using the manager tool, you need to create a user profile to begin your self-assessment.

Complete your self-assessment. Once you have completed this, click on the feedback button to invite others who know you in a work capacity to provide feedback to you. Please be mindful of your own current wellbeing and resilience when seeking feedback on your performance.

Once you have received feedback you should download a report and share the findings with your manager.

In a minimum of 200 words, write about your experience of using the tool, including:

  • How completing the feedback tool has had an impact on you
  • An example of how your practice has changed, or may change, as a result of completing the tool

You can provide the statement on the Open Badge application form or provide a link to your own *blog/portfolio. You may find it helpful to look at Recording Your Learning and Reflecting on Leadership.

*If you want to use a blog or ePortfolio entry as evidence, you might find our guide to preparing and publishing your evidence useful.
