About the Book:
Bob Davies played a significant role in the development of modern basketball. Davies was one of the first three NBA superstars. As a Rochester Royal, he played on one of only four teams in NBA history to win the playoff championship or finish or tie for first in their division or conference for five consecutive seasons. Davies is credited with introducing the behind-the-back-dribble, developing the penetration and transition styles of play, and creating several innovative passes.

“Feedback is the breakfast of champions.” - Ken Blanchard

Feedback can help you develop professionally and personally. RIT has partnered with the SUNY Leadership Institute (sunyli.suny.edu) to offer a 360° (multi-observer) survey for your individual professional development. This orientation will introduce you to the 360° tool and prepare you to take the assessment.

Upon completion of the orientation session, you will be able to:

  1. Know what a 360° instrument is and the benefits of 360° feedback.
  2. Use the SUNYLI 360° portal and be prepared to take the assessment.
  3. Identify observers to gain the feedback you are seeking.
  4. Learn what will happen next in terms of the final report and the 360°follow-up session.

*Note: At the orientation session, you will be asked to commit to participating. If you agree and do not participate, your department will be charged $75 to cover the costs.

About the facilitator: Ginny Hronek brings many years of experience in public service, higher education, faculty development, training and coaching. Her work has been domestic and international. Ginny has offered perspective and advice on radio, television and written for newspapers and periodicals and been a keynote speaker for several conferences.

FEEDBACK FROM  PAST PARTICIPANTS:

-The results will help me develop skills that need attention. It also showed me what my observers value.
-The process was very useful…it provided 25 individuals who work with me an opportunity to provide anonymous feedback from which I can learn and grow.
-The 360 LSI brought several issues in my performance and how it is perceived by others to my attention.
-I found it valuable and useful. The comments were particularly helpful. The instructional seminars at the start and end of the survey were very helpful as well.
-I think a 360 is a much better tool than an upward appraisal as it allows you to get a broader range of input.
-It is always good to get feedback every few years to keep on track.

This is a professional development opportunity for all full-time RIT faculty hosted by Faculty Career Development Services, The Wallace Center.
