Dr. Brian Griffith began teaching about leadership and teams at Vanderbilt University in 1998. In his courses, he often invites students to give each other candid feedback about perceived strengths and weaknesses. In order to encourage open communication, he created an anonymous, 360 degree tool in 2009 so students could give and receive meaningful feedback that could be used to create personal development plans.
Through word of mouth, other universities learned about the 360 degree feedback platform and wanted to use it. Businesses and organizations were also interested in the feedback tool to help their managers and teams become more effective. The G360 survey platform has proven to be such a powerful catalyst for learning and development that it rapidly became a recognized industry leader among universities and businesses alike. The results can be so dramatic that one of our clients recently told us, “You saved my career.”
