An interest online article shows research that women underestimate their bosses opinion of their performance (it later confirms that this underestimation is not limited to their boss relationship). This is not a stereotypical article – there is some very interesting insights which are certainly new to me. I can’t confirm the merit of this research but what does interest me is that 360 feedback was used to determine the issue.
360 feedback could of course have been used to counter the problem. As well as raising self-awareness, 360 degree feedback also improves your awareness of how others see you. This can often be very revealing in the positive impact you are having and give confidence in your interaction with those around you.
The article is well worth a glance.
