360-degree evaluations can be effective -- or not 

Assessing the president is a board's responsibility, and a "360-degree evaluation" is one way for a board to gain insight about the leader's effectiveness. But there are potential pitfalls too -- a 360-degree evaluation is expensive, for one thing. And even more damaging -- some staff may take advantage of its anonymity to grind axes or undermine rivals.

Before you embark on a comprehensive evaluation of your president, read "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly of 360 Evaluations," which appeared last year in Nonprofit Quarterly. It offers case studies and wise practices for employing the 360-degree evaluation for your school's greatest benefit.
