360 Degrees of Nonsense

360 degree feedback. What's all that about then?

You're hardly likely to tell your boss what you think of him or his management style (unless you're having your exit interview and don't want a reference) and the majority of top flight bosses are by nature emotionally stunted, weapons-grade psychopaths (they need to be to have clawed their way to the top), so they don't give a toss what their staff think about them in the first place. Top management is known to be a favoured refuge for the charismatic, yet incompetent psychopath who craves the adrenalin rush of risk taking (witness the banking crisis).

360 degree feedback started in the German military during WWII - and they lost. It was then adopted by the Americans and turned into a management fad.

  1. Is this something to do with your head spinning around whilst projectile vomiting green bile?

    That's what I always do when employees complain.
