|360 feedback is a tool for helping groups of managers (or the whole organization) improve, not for 'straightening out' any one of them. I've seen more than once a manager 'volunteer' for 360 and how that fails, usually with the manager leaving. A lot of money to achieve nothing. Next best thing to cascading from the top is starting with a group of managers. Then they're in it together. They can support one another in the process - and the results may surprise you!
So start as high as you can, or with a group of managers.
