360⁰ Feedback Tool for Mentors
360⁰ Feedback is a development tool to help employees recognize strengths and weaknesses and become more effective.  Feedback is typically collected from an individual’s immediate work “circle” of peers, subordinates, and superiors.  The notion of the feedback being provided from a full spectrum, or circle, derived the term 360⁰Feedback. A 360⁰ may include a self-evaluation. The 360⁰ Mentor Feedback tool was developed by the fourth cohort of the Faculty Mentoring Leadership Program (FMLP) at Brigham and Women’s Hospital to provide 360-feedback to Mentors.
