The role of career coaches is increasingly important as technology transforms the economy, upends sectors and reshapes jobs. When people are changing not just jobs, but often changing sectors, they need a coach schooled in the Skillful way.

Skillful equips career coaches with skills, resources, and support needed to help people pursue job opportunities in a rapidly changing economy.

Skillful is Championing Skills-Based Approaches for More Effective Coaching

In this modern labor market, coaches need to apply skills-based thinking to their work. And like the people they serve, career coaches need help and support strengthening their skills to meet the challenges posed by a dramatically changing economy.

The Skillful Governor’s Coaching Corps
The Skillful Governor’s Coaching Corps is a state-based training and leadership development program designed to strengthen and support exceptional career coaching professionals, so they are better equipped to connect people to effective training opportunities and quality jobs.

Skillful launched the first Skillful Governor’s Coaching Corps in Colorado in 2017 with Governor John Hickenlooper, and Indiana’s Skillful Governor’s Coaching Corps in 2019 with Governor Eric J. Holcomb.
Join Skillful’s Coaching Community of Practice
As a complement to the Corps, Skillful offers online Skillful Coaching Communities of Practice, which create opportunities for coaches to network, share and learn from each other while they explore new resources and methods for helping clients. A vibrant Skillful Coaching Community of Practice is active in Colorado and Indiana.
