What Does a 360 Evaluation Entail?
A 360 evaluation is an impactful tool that affords a fresh perspective to your inherent strengths. It entails a thoughtfully designed questionnaire, packaged as a feedback request to individuals whose opinions you hold in high regard. The best people for this are the ones who engage with you regularly - mentors, family, friends, or members of your inner circle.
Why Does This Book Include a 360 Evaluation?
This evaluation is included with the intent of heightening your self-awareness, bolstering your confidence, and amplifying your faith in your own worth and the contributions you make to the world. It's doubtful that you've achieved your current status by acting without direction. As a magician, you are naturally driven and ambitious, yet some aspects still need nurturing.
The wisdom you've garnered over the years—whether it's been 1, 5, 10, 15, or even 30—has shaped your persona and life. You've fostered a mindset, practices, and habits that have propelled you to success in diverse life areas. Since these have become a second nature to you, others' inputs can help remind you that the skills and knowledge you've gathered over time are of immense value to others.
Candid and accurate feedback is vital for validating your self-perception, pinpointing unnoticed strengths, and revealing blind spots about how you could assist others. The 360 evaluation unearths the value you offer to the world, a value that everyone possesses but often forgets.
With the feedback you receive, you'll establish your "Magician Strength Index" - an inventory of your strengths, what others find valuable, and aspects you can start mentoring others about immediately.
The Significance of Your Personal Value
In your routine affairs, you may overlook your industry expertise and knowledge as it's habitual for you. However, what you may fail to realize is that your everyday knowledge could be the missing link for others. Sharing this value with others can unlock immense opportunities for them - your 'ordinary' can indeed be someone else's 'extraordinary.'
To evolve as a magician, it's crucial to identify and accept your strengths. You may not instantly recognize your value because you've processed vast data over time and have become an expert at it. Once you recognize your value, it becomes your responsibility to share it with the world, crafting a part of your legacy in the process.
Start Your Value Discover Process:
- Step 1: Create a list of 10 people you trust and believe can offer valuable feedback. This can include mentors, friends, family, or anyone from your trusted circle.
- Step 2: Draft your MSI request letter, explaining the intent of your request. The aim is to discover the unnoticed value that you offer because it's something you do routinely.
- Step 3: As you begin to receive responses, read and analyze the feedback with an open heart, embracing the vulnerability it took to ask for feedback, and the honesty in the responses.
- Step 4: Refer to the “Magician Strength Index Response Review” and ensure you receive all feedback with an open mind.
- Step 5: Based on the responses, list the person who responded and jot down the strengths they noted about you in the Response Review.
- Step 6: Analyze the responses to identify common themes or repeating comments and note them in the “This is Me” box.
- Step 7: Use the MSI to draft a list of ways to apply these strengths. You might consider mentoring on a specific topic, writing a book, or training others as a means of affirming them.
