LOGO for Workforce Enhancement Program  / Coaching, Evaluating and Delivering Constructive Feedback – Learning Series We are pleased to introduce the Virtual Learning Series: Coaching, Evaluating and Delivering Constructive Feedback, part of the Commonwealth’s effort to bring useful and effective skills development to employees.  This voluntary email learning series was created to provide managers/supervisors with relevant information to enhance their ability to effectively coach, evaluate, and deliver ongoing feedback to their direct reports.

Why a Virtual Learning Series?

Coaching, Evaluating and Delivering Constructive Feedback was designed to deliver valuable professional development tools and information to Commonwealth Managers and Supervisors in a convenient, timely manner. Short, periodic emails and supporting activities were developed with your busy schedule in mind. As you work to build and maintain high-performing teams, the topics in this series will help you enhance your skills as a manager, supervisor and coach.

Why Coaching?

This series was developed to respond to a direct request from Commonwealth employees.  As part of the MassHR initiative, interviews and focus groups were conducted with employees from various Agencies and Departments.  We heard a consistent theme; that coaching skills were identified as an area of development for managers and supervisors.  To learn more about MassHR, please visit the MassHR website Mass.Gov/MassHR.

If you have any questions or would like to provide feedback on the series, please email HRDTraining@Massmail.State.MA.US. Your questions and feedback are welcomed, and will inform enhancements to future iterations of this series.

Thanks for your public service to the Commonwealth and your continued interest in professional development.
