EM360 Folio


Enhanced Features for Conference-Wide Usage

Built upon EM360, the only 360° feedback and leadership formation tool designed specifically for the UMC, EM360 Folio empowers conferences with tools to help Cabinets supervise, train and appoint pastors more efficiently by identifying a leader’s unique strengths and growth opportunities. 

Clergy excellence is rooted in the early days of the Wesleyan movement that offered honest feedback to preachers and lay leaders alike from fellow preachers, small groups and supervising leadership. Space was given to process the feedback and grow. EM360 continues that tradition using research and best practices from performance improvement sciences.
