We support companies of all sizes (from startups through to global brands) to understand what runs through their DNA and makes them unique.
While most business leaders understand the importance of organisational culture, many still struggle to grasp how to use culture as a key driver of performance.
Our team of culture change consultants can help.
Culture (an organisation’s collective behaviours) is the cornerstone of competitive advantage.
Companies with strong cultures saw a 4x increase in revenue growth. (Forbes)
MadeYou believes in the art of giving and receiving feedback as part of instilling an open culture- which is why we’re so pleased to offer our 360 Feedback experience to you and your team.
How does it work?
Through self-assessment and a full 360 survey, plus 1-2-1s before and after the results are collated, we can ensure your team are fully equipped to improve their own performance and chances of progression as well as that of their direct reports.
Why use 360 Feedback?
Commonly used as a development tool, the program can provide a holistic view of individuals by gathering feedback from people they work and interact with.
What is 360 used for?
Calibration meetings allow you to discuss the individual performance of team members with the goal of ensuring that all managers apply similar standards across all employees. All employees are evaluated on the same criteria – no matter who they report to.
Calibration enables businesses to gain insight on performance, in addition to the manager’s prospective. By working with peers, an objective perspective of how well the individuals are performing is developed- identifying the under performers, motivating the performers and highlighting where more investment is needed for the over performers on the team.
So, what is the Calibration process?
Before a calibration session, you will have determined the scoring benchmarks. Once you calibrate these scores and carry out the exercise, you will know how each agent is performing.
MadeYou will support you through the whole Calibration process, from the initial 360 feedback surveys to collating the information and highlighting the individual’s strengths and weaknesses. From gathering self-assessment forms and passing this information onto Managers, to setting a Calibration date between Head of Departments and Senior Managers to discuss the results before finally setting a meeting with Senior Managers to discuss the way forward.
Using calibration sessions is of great benefit to all stakeholders- from the client to management, team leaders and agents. Standardising scoring across the whole company helps to determine the quality of your staff, shows where coaching needs are, ensures you have the right people in the right roles and keeps those people motivated and invested in the company.
These sessions are perfect for furthering team cohesion and bringing different teams together – this is very much a day to get to know your peers.
Perfect for newly formed teams (as well as your more ‘dinosaur-ic’ teams), the combination of our quirky and thought-provoking activities, together with our energetic facilitators ,will leave your team pleasantly exhausted at the end of these sessions- and when you look at the outputs it will be clear why.
So much knowledge and so many ideas will be released while the ethos of working as a team is truly embraced.
The process is triggered by a meeting between MadeYou Think and your company sponsor, who will explain the key objectives you would like to address through your sessions.
Our amazing team then builds workshops and effective, tailor-made exercises that will give you and your sponsor exactly what you need.
We also utilise our Gallup-Certified Strengths Coach to work with individual team members to understand their unique talents and strengths. We then use their strong points to provide you with some funky profiling around team strengths and areas for you and your teams to focus on.
We meet with your C-Level stakeholders to collect information about your company’s processes, values, culture and future plans. We also look to understand pain points which may be holding your business back.
Our team will then formulate initial plans with a focus on key areas of improvement. We then hold workshops with your C-Level team over two days to get a clearer picture of the business’s future.
Based on the findings from these workshops, we will then report back with our recommendations and any areas of concern- plus, of course, loads of ideas on how to overcome problems and make the most of all challenges presented.
This is the time for you to say “YES, enhance my business!”
Next we look to work with core operational people within your business.
