Feedback for Managers

In the quest to drive individuals or teams to peak performance, leaders often encounter the hurdle of gathering structured feedback from employees to enhance their own effectiveness. However, many employees hesitate to provide candid feedback to their superiors for various reasons. By offering an anonymous feedback avenue processed through a third party, employees can freely express their opinions without the fear of repercussions. 


Leadership Feedback with HRinstruments

With our feedback tool for leaders, we provide managers with the opportunity to better recognize their strengths and weaknesses, and to work on their personal and professional development with targeted focus, thereby uncovering potential blind spots. This aids them in continuously enhancing their leadership qualities and becoming an inspiring, empathetic, and competent leader for their employees. 

Leadership with Foresight

Unleashing Potential

Feedback for managers supports performance measurement regarding goal achievement and alignment with organizational objectives. Through constructive feedback, leaders can monitor their individual performance, track progress, and take targeted actions to enhance their effectiveness, contributing to the overall success of the company. Performance measurement helps assess leadership performance and identify areas for improvement. This approach is highly data-driven and can be seamlessly integrated with employee feedback sessions and thus performance management.

Driving Growth and Development

As with all our feedback tools, we hold ourselves to the highest standards in designing our questionnaires. Specifically for feedback for leaders, we emphasize the following points:

Validity and Reliability: We only inquire about the strengths and weaknesses of the leader, not their popularity, for instance. 

Objectivity and Relevance: Only competencies and behaviors are evaluated, not subjective judgments or unrealistic expectations that provide no basis for action. 

Differentiation: The aim is to assess competencies that the individual can improve upon, rather than criticizing unchangeable personality traits. 

More Clarity, More Success

Frequently Asked Questions about Feedback for Managers

Management feedback is a feedback process centered around the leader as the recipient of feedback. They are the only individual who receives feedback. 

The process is similar to other feedback methods, such as 360-degree feedback. Feedback is provided based on a questionnaire, with the leader receiving feedback from their employees. The responses are automatically aggregated into a report provided to the leader. The discussion of the results is an open dialogue, which may follow a structured format but should still allow for genuine exchange and not merely involve the leader presenting the results. 

Typically, the emphasis is on developing personal leadership competencies. Alongside leadership styles, general work-related behaviors, key competencies, and desired values, additional topics such as diversity or agility can also be integrated into focused leadership feedback. Embedding leadership feedback into organizational processes of cultural change and organizational development is crucial, as it also involves strategically aligning leaders with a unified leadership model or key company values. 

Management Feedback focuses exclusively on leaders. They receive feedback on their leadership and can enhance or expand their skills accordingly. 360-degree feedback can be obtained from all employees, regardless of the individual. The recipient then receives feedback from all sides and hierarchical levels regarding their work style. 

In Management Feedback, the feedback providers typically include the employees of the respective leader. Sometimes, other groups or individuals from other teams, or in specific cases external individuals (such as freelancers), may also be integrated. It is essential to ensure that they can also assess the leadership behavior of the feedback recipient. Alternatively, a 360-degree feedback with a specific thematic focus might be appropriate. 

The follow-up process in Management Feedback must always occur within each organizational unit, meaning every leader engages with the employees who provided feedback to discuss the results. This dialogue is more critical than the results themselves, as the feedback process is seen in a systemic sense as clarification and relationship building. However, on the development level, exchanging views on the results is essential, as the most meaningful and helpful measures can be reflected upon in the joint dialogue. It is also possible for the leader to provide feedback to the employees, initiating a mutual, appreciative feedback process that extends beyond the results of Leadership Feedback, resulting in measures for the personal and professional development of the feedback-providing employees.
