The Korn Ferry 360 Assessment:

Unlock the full potential and power of extraordinary leaders

Korn Ferry 360 is a state-of-the-art survey process that combines Korn Ferry’s world-class competency intellectual property to provide in-depth feedback reports for outstanding insights.

 

Underpinned by the Korn Ferry Leadership Architect (KFLA) - the world’s most robust and highly validated comprehensive competency model - Korn Ferry 360 allows the configuration of content to be precisely targeted by industry, strategy, and leadership level (C-suite executives, VP, Supervisor, Director and Manager) to help organizations develop their leaders.

 

There are two distinctively different models to choose from:

Competency Model: 
  • 38 competencies are broken down into four categories to demonstrate a person’s competencies to identify strengths, opportunities for improvement and potential development needs. The categories are:

    • THOUGHT - understanding the business, making complex decisions, strategic mindset

    • RESULTS - taking initiative, managing execution, focusing on performance

    • PEOPLE - building collaborative relationships, optimizing diverse talent, influencing people

    • SELF - authenticity, demonstrating self-awareness, flexibility, managing ambiguity

  • To enhance these competencies, Korn Ferry is also set up to measure ten STALLERS and STOPPERS, which are paramount to Leadership Performance and can be considered harmful behavioural factors

  • Competencies measure how a leader:

    • Manages complexity

    • Values Differences

    • Drives Engagement

    • Manages Ambiguity

    • Demonstrates Courage

Behavioural Model: 
  • Underlying behaviours are measured such as:

  • Pushes team or others to take action on new challenges

  • Hires people who demonstrate long-term organizational fit and sustained contribution

  • Focus others on driving continuous improvement in quality outcomes

  • Maintains honesty and authenticity and encourages others to do the same

  • Is trusted to represent or protect the interests of others fairly

 

  • Options include Korn Ferry’s proprietary behaviourally anchored rating scale that asks raters to assess against very specific behaviours, and an effectiveness scale that asks raters to assess the individual’s effectiveness with specific behaviours

Korn Ferry 360 Reports brings leaders’ attributes into microscopic focus

  • View each reader group’s perspective with an indication of the consistency of agreement within those groups

  • Allow a participant to revisit thoughts and ideas from their feedback sessions with room for notes

  • Inform coaching conversations and kick-start crucial development process with focused development guidance that can be integrated into the report
