Plan Your Pathway

Everyone’s leadership learning is different. We’ve put together a selection of tools to help you assess where you are now, and what you want to achieve on your leadership journey.

Step 1: My leadership now

Use the following tools to build a picture of your current leadership strengths and areas for improvement.

Step 2: Leadership capability feedback tool for managers

  • The Leadership Capability Feedback Tool for managers

    Welcome to the 360-feedback tool for managers. It is designed to help health and social care professionals, specifically managers in social services, reflect on their leadership capabilities, and identify strengths and areas for development.

    360 assessment is a process in which you rate your own performance as a leader and ask people who know you well in a work capacity to rate your performance too. This is a very powerful and sensitive process. You’ll gain valuable insight into how you are perceived by others and gain feedback that is relevant, structured, focused and which can be acted on.

    This tool gives you the option to nominate a feedback facilitator (this could be a coach, mentor, or someone from your Learning & Development (L&D), Organisational Development (OD) or Human Resources (HR) team) to support your understanding of the feedback. While it is encouraged that everyone has a facilitated feedback session when using this tool, it is not mandatory.

    Please be mindful of your own current wellbeing and resilience when seeking feedback on your performance.

    Guidance on how to use the tool is given throughout. Click on the feedback button to invite others who know you in a work capacity to give feedback on your performance.

    Please use the Leadership Capabilities 360 (LC360) and follow the steps for downloading the LC360 feedback App.

    This tool is hosted on the NHS Education for Scotland TURAS website.
