360-degree reviews may never be part of formal evals: The Pentagon is rapidly expanding its use of '360-... #navy

The Pentagon is rapidly expanding its use of “360-degree” reviews for senior officers, but legal concerns may limit their inclusion in any formal promotion or command screening process. The controversial evaluation tools that include input from peers and subordinates as well as supervisors were mandated by the Pentagon’s top brass earlier this year, particularly Army Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs. It was driven in part by concerns about so-called “toxic leaders” and a spate of senior-level misconduct. When the forcewide requirement was announced, some officers feared that disgruntled subordinates could potentially derail promising careers with criticism offered under a veil of anonymity if the feedback was made a formal aspect of their personnel records.

    From first hand experience I know Toxic or weak Senior Leaders ignore Toxic Subordinate Leaders. The Army has a big problem and Odierno is trying his darn to fix it.
    Toxic Leaders come in all forms and great subordinate Officers pay the toll of the Army's failure to weed them out. I have seen BN Commanders live through IG complaints from an entire BN Staff only to be promoted all while the staff were given bad OER's as reprisal, they just walk. I know of the same BN Commander that hand picked personnel to do his leader surveys because his own BN destroyed him on a previous leader survey. Toxic leader come in the forms of sexist, racist, obnoxiously aggressive, and down right pigs. Toxic leaders must be weeded out now to protect the careers of great subordinates who have stood up for what's right and report them for their callous actions.
    The Army is cutting thousands of Officers, many who have been wrongly evaluated by Toxic Leaders.
