Career coaches help job seekers find rewarding careers by providing them with guidance, resources, and support. As more and more people look to hone or acquire skills in a rapidly changing economy, the work of career coaches becomes critical.
In recognition of coaches’ vital role in the labor market, Skillful and its partners have created two programs to serve and connect them: the Coaching Community of Practice and the Governor's Coaching Corps.
At Skillful we believe that, as technology increasingly influences the way we work, the human element of coaching will become even more important than it is today. Our goal is to empower coaches with the skills and tools they need to reduce the transactional part of their work, so they can make room for the transformational.
Governor’s Coaching Corps
The Governor's Coaching Corps
The Governor's Coaching Corps, developed in partnership with the state of Colorado, gives coaches tools and training to help them better serve job seekers. This intensive, eight-month leadership and skills development program brings together exceptional coaches from workforce centers, colleges, high schools, and nonprofit organizations to hone their leadership skills, leverage new practices and technologies, and build a supportive cohort to serve job seekers.
At the end of the program in June, based on their work, the coaches recommended new policies and practices to state policymakers for potential adoption.
