Build Better Teams
Build a team of expert thinkers, learners, communicators and collaborators with Skillpod. Our skills coaching program helps teams grow by filling gaps and creating connections in the new reality of remote or hybrid work.
The world has changed. Work needs to change too.
Create a culture of growth and connection.
Talent is arriving at your workplace with enthusiasm and cutting edge hard skills. However, strategic thinking, critical thinking, design and innovation thinking and communication skills are often lacking. Not only do you want to attract, nurture and retain talent, but you need your employees to apply their skills and help your business grow.
Skillpod is a coaching program that helps address the existing skills gap in the workplace. We help companies and organizations develop a culture of thinking, learning and communicating, particularly in remote and hybrid work environments.
How It Works
Our programs are tailored to your organization’s needs. We understand that your time is valuable and we work within your schedule. Modules range in length from 15 minutes to one hour, and the whole program can range from 1 month to 9 months in length.
Employees complete self-assessments to establish a baseline.
Employees engage in short, targeted learning activities and reflection prompts.
Employees participate in a series of live or virtual training sessions.
Tailored follow-up modules: live or virtual sessions, masterclasses, asynchronous learning, 1:1 coaching.
Self awareness is essential for growth and learning. Do you know how you learn best?
Learning By Doing
After we assess your team’s learning preferences, we launch challenges where the group works through simulated situations, building the skills they need to apply on the job. We provide regular opportunities for reflection and feedback for you and your employees throughout the process.

As a college professor and cofounder of a development and training company, I am clearly in the education business. And, so are you. Workplace learning just looks a little different.
Believing that you can excel in any career based only on your technical expertise will inevitably land you on a plateau. “Soft” skills have the power to unlock a new level of expertise.
