Replying to LO20730 --

Good advice from Keith Cowan...to which I only add:

There is a strange version of 360 feedback (that actually predates it)
which allows only positive feedback. It is usually done in a face to face
group meeting. One person (at a time) sits in the middle and one by one
the rest of the people mention one positive thing about working with that
"focus person." Each person gets a chance to be the focus.

This could also be done by email, although I'd want to follow up with a
face-to-face meeting if I could.

It's a wonderful experience for everyone and bonds people together.

Since 360 has gotten so popular I guess we'd better give this an
appropriate name -- perhaps "360 Degree Affirmation" ?? [In the 1970's,
that more naive time, we simply called it The Love Seat!!!]
