About About 360 Feedback and Hermann Brain Dominance Instrument (HBDI)

360° Feedback is a process whereby leaders and staff members can receive confidential, anonymous feedback from the people they work with. It is an important element of this program and is undertaken using the Strategic Intelligence Profile (SIP). The SIP is based on a Strategic Intelligence Capability Framework which seeks to establish a shared understanding of what constitutes strategic intelligence. The 360° feedback, with its focus on comparing one’s own views with others’ assessments of our performance and behaviour, is intended to help participants identify their specific strategic intelligence development needs within the different elements of strategic intelligence.

A self-assessment profile, the HBDI profile it helps people understand the way they tend to think and supports individuals to develop an understanding of their communication style, how to work with their colleagues and how to leverage the skills and strengths of others to achieve results. Based on research into neuropsychology, the HBDI provides an individual with an excellent understanding of their natural styles for processing information which impact on an individual’s perception of the world as well as the way they approach problem solving, the effectiveness of their interactions with others and how they accomplish things.
