Feedback is a rare commodity in organizational life, but it is key to managerial effectiveness. One increasingly popular vehicle for getting feedback from one's boss, peers, and subordinates is the multiple-perspective, or 360-degree, feedback instrument. Use of such an instrument can enhance self-confidence by highlighting individual strengths and can facilitate greater self-awareness by pointing out areas in need of further development. Because of the availability of so many feedback instruments, finding the best instruments for an organization's needs is difficult. This book presents a step-by-step process that shows how to evaluate multiple-feedback instruments intended for management development. The steps take you through such issues as instrument development, validity and reliability, feedback display, scoring strategies, and cost.
In this Franklin Classic Storybook, our hero can count forwards and backwards. He can zip zippers and button buttons. He can slide down a riverbank by himself. He can even sleep alone is his small, dark shell. And he's trying very hard to be the best player on his soccer team. AGES: 3-8 AUTHOR: In 1983, Toronto journalist Paulette Bourgeois decided to write a children's book. All she needed was an idea. That idea came one night as she was watching an episode of the television series M*A*S*H. The character of Hawkeye Pierce refused to enter a cave because he was claustrophobic. "I'm so scared that if I were a turtle, I'd be afraid of my own shell," he said. Thus was born Franklin in the Dark, a tale of a little green turtle who's afraid of small dark places, including his own shell. The name of the turtle came, Bourgeois thought, out of the blue. "Now I realize that Hawkeye's full name is Franklin Benjamin Pierce!" Brenda Clark began drawing as a small child and realized by the age of 17 that she wanted to become a commercial artist. She studied Illustration at Sheridan College in Oakville, Ontario, and graduated with an honours diploma in 1977. Shortly afterward, Brenda found that there was plenty of work for a freelancer in educational publishing and her first jobs were for elementary school books. This experience gave her plenty of published examples for her portfolio and a better understanding of how to interpret a story with pictures. Colour illustrations
