Why use 360° feedback for lawyers
As law firms evolve and embrace the changes the Legal Services Act will bring the roles and expectations of lawyers within those firms also change. Technical excellence and fee generation alone are no longer enough. It is increasingly important for lawyers to demonstrate strategic vision, good leadership abilities and effective management skills. Working relationships with peers, juniors and other professionals as well as client relationships will come under increasing scrutiny as Law firms focus on results achieved and how they are being achieved. Law firms need to identify the values and behaviours which will help them to grow and meet their goals.
360 feedback is a great way to measure some of these skills both at an individual and firm level. To do this successfully the 360 tool used must be specific, appropriate to the lawyers using it and give clear feedback reports. 360 degree feedback is far more than just an assessment or appraisal process. Done properly with the right tool, it is a powerful, informative and motivating experience for participants. It also provides rich data and clarity about where to focus development initiatives and resources.
