The Ken Blanchard Companies'

DISCovering Self and Others with 360° Feedback is the most commonly used version of the popular four-quadrant behavioral model with concepts originally developed by Dr. William Marston in the late 1920s. It is easy to comprehend and provides powerful feedback on behavioral preferences. The 360° feedback mechanism validates true self-findings while Blanchard’s accompanying workbook and job aid are best-in-class for usability, encouraging both self-understanding and improved relations with others in the workplace.

The Blanchard program is focused less on labeling and more on developing an awareness of an individual’s behavioral preferences, as well as those of others with whom the individual interacts. The program is hands-on and packed full of activities that promote a participatory experience with the goals of:

  • Greater self-understanding and responsibility for everyday interactions with others
  • Improved teamwork
  • More choice of communication styles
  • Realization of core strengths to be leveraged
