This study examined the role of the feedback environment and the individual attributes of feedback orientation, self-awareness, and learning agility on leadership-development outcomes after participation in a leadership-development program. Research subjects included 55 leaders who participated in the program and their supervisors who rated their improvement in leader effectiveness and capability 2 months after the program. The authors found that leaders who work in a favorable feedback environment prior to attending a leadership-development program that incorporates 360-degree feedback had better outcomes than those who work in an unfavorable feedback environment.
