A guide to MultiView

MultiView is a competency-based feedback questionnaire that provides objective and honest feedback from your manager(s), team members and peers.

How does it work?

Reviewing yourself

You complete a feedback questionnaire consisting of questions and statements relating to your behaviour at work in the following areas:

  • People and Relationships
  • Tasks and Projects
  • Drives and Emotions

Under each area, you are given a range of behavioural descriptions and a corresponding rating scale. You are asked to rate your performance against each behavioural description from 'far below competent' to 'fully competent'. If you feel you have not had adequate opportunity to demonstrate your skills in this area, you can select the ‘no evidence’ option. You also have the opportunity to add comments about each area.

Completion of the MultiView questionnaire is not timed, however it normally takes approximately 25 minutes to complete.

As well as completing the review yourself, you also nominate a selection of reviewers to provide feedback on you. These reviewers should include your manager(s), any direct reports within your team and any other colleagues you work with closely. 

Reviewing others

As with the self-review questionnaire, you are asked to rate the person in question in relation to the following areas at work:

  • People and Relationships
  • Tasks and Projects
  • Drives and Emotions

There are two levels of question:

  1. Detailed review - if you have a lot of contact with the person in question and feel you can offer a good deal of feedback on them.
  2. Simple review - if you have less contact but feel you can still offer some feedback, albeit not at such a detailed level.

You will be asked to select which applies to you.

Regardless of which route you take, under each area, you are given a range of behavioural descriptions and a corresponding rating scale. You are asked to rate the person’s performance against each behavioural description, based on your experience of working with them, from 'far below competent' to 'fully competent'. If you feel they have not had adequate opportunity to demonstrate their skills in this area, you can select the ‘no evidence’ option. 

You also have the opportunity to provide additional written feedback in relation to the behaviours you have rated which you feel would be helpful to guide their development.

Completion of the MultiView questionnaire is not timed, however it normally takes approximately 10-15 minutes to complete the detailed review and 5 minutes for the simple review.

Feedback

Following completion of all reviews, feedback from you and your reviewers is brought together to produce an integrated report that highlights your perceived strengths and identifies any capability gaps. You should discuss this report with your manager(s) as part of your development planning.
