Competencies 360

To succeed as a business, you need to help your leaders close the gap between their performance and their potential. But how do you build a meaningful understanding of where people are performing? And which capabilities are the ones you should really be focusing on?

Competencies 360 answers these questions and more. It’s our globally validated assessment that enables you to measure key behavioural capabilities relevant to different levels of leadership, compare performance across different talent populations, and give individuals powerful insights to help realise their potential.

Over two decades of research, we have identified five critical behavioural capabilities that consistently predict leadership success: Thinking, Engaging, Leading, Transforming and Performing. In a volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA) world, it is these capabilities that elevate the most effective organisations and leaders above the rest.

Competencies 360 provides robust 360 surveys and personalised reports, tailored to each level of leadership. These give confidential, anonymous and personalised feedback on performance and behaviour, with valuable insights and actionable learning points for both the individuals and your organisation.

Success story

Competencies 360 in action


An FMCG business wanted to drive robust leadership impact performance discussions and identify areas of development to focus on in L&D initiatives. To ensure a data driven solution, the first step was to agree an objective and standardised methodology for assessing leadership performance, providing feedback to senior leaders in the business and analysing individual and enterprise data trends to inform development initiatives.


Competencies 360 was used across each level of leadership in the business to provide structured performance feedback to leaders on their leadership capabilities and impact. Leaders received support via individual coaching sessions to ensure comprehensive understanding and ownership of the feedback data. To supplement this and ensure there was sufficient internal capability to deliver this in the future, HR business partners were upskilled to deliver and provide assessment feedback moving forward.
