Sample Invitation to 360⁰ Mentor Feedback Circle

Dear (Name of Circle Member):

I am participating in a 360⁰ Mentor Feedback process and would appreciate your help in providing feedback to me. I’m asking you to provide feedback because you have direct experience and/or observation of my role as a Mentor and will provide honest and useful developmental information.  

(Name of Coach) is serving as my Coach for this process and will be collecting your responses which will be anonymous and collated with the responses from others (to help maintain anonymity), so please provide your honest impression of my mentoring behavior and interactions.

If you are willing to complete the feedback please let (Name of Coach) know by (Date).  He/she will then follow up with instructions and the specific areas of mentorship for which I am seeking feedback.

Your feedback is confidential and I will not know whether you participate.  With hope that you will, I want to thank you in advance for the chance to get your feedback so that I can continue to improve in my development as a Mentor.

Please let (Name of Coach) know if you have any questions and if this is something you’d be willing to do.  I truly appreciate it.
