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.

1

Employees complete self-assessments to establish a baseline.

2

Employees engage in short, targeted learning activities and reflection prompts.

Employees participate in a series of live or virtual training sessions.

4

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, practicing and building the skills they need to apply on the job. We include opportunities for reflection and feedback for you and your employees throughout the process.
