One of your first jobs as a leader is to install an effective feedback culture, providing yourself and all team members with the feedback needed to grow.
Encourage open communication, actively seek feedback, and create an environment where team members feel comfortable sharing their thoughts.

You'll learn how to listen actively, understand their perspectives, and respond in a way that demonstrates true care and understanding. This skill is crucial for fostering a supportive and inclusive team environment where every member feels valued. Use empathy to listen to your new team and built rapport to get off to a good start.

By mastering the art of effective check-ins, you're directly enhancing team dynamics and ensuring that everyone feels valued and understood.

Meet your trainer

At the kickstart of your 3 - 6 week skills development program, you will follow a webinar delivered by Sarah Cherif, founder and CEO of SkillsGym. Here are a few things you might like to know about her:

Sarah's background

Sarah began her career at the University of Ghent with degrees in child education and philosophy, quickly realizing her passion for teaching. Faced with the challenge of helping seasoned leaders develop soft skills without any prior corporate experience, she turned this disadvantage into a strength by creating evidence-based, sure-proof plans to build strong soft skills through habit formation and impactful conversations.

Personal life

Sarah's roots are Belgian and Tunesian, and she partially grew up in Washington DC. She currently lives in Belgium with her partner Nils (who is co-founder of SkillsGym Health), and has a dog named Lizzy.

20+ years of impact

Together with her SkillsGym team, Sarah has helped numerous world-class organizations like Samsung, Deloitte, Ikea... and thousands of managers and their teams improve their soft skills. SkillsGym now offers programs to accelerate the mastery of 50 essential leadership, team and well-being skills.

Fun fact

Sarah tests all the habits and conversations in the SkillsGym offer herself; that's more than 200+ habits and 200+ conversations. Most of them have become second nature. Yet, as you'll learn in the webinars, she isn't shy to talk about the failures and frustrations along the way.
