Why you should follow this program

Managing a team can feel like navigating a maze—uncertain of which path to take or which factors truly matter. What should you prioritize? What skills and qualities are essential in team members? How can you best support and empower your team to reach its full potential?

Building a successful team encompasses various elements—trust, psychological safety, feedback culture, continuous improvement, talent acquisition, mission alignment, and visionary leadership. Yet, what if the most crucial aspect remains undiscovered?

Our program on Building High-Performing Teams goes beyond the conventional wisdom, delving into the core essence of team success. Through a blend of cutting-edge research, practical insights, and hands-on exercises, we uncover the hidden dynamics that truly differentiate high-performing teams from the rest.

Enhance Your Analytical Skills with the Diamond Model

Imagine the confidence of being able to dissect any situation and uncover hidden insights. Our program empowers you to use the Diamond Model, a powerful analytical tool, to analyze complex team dynamics and identify blind spots that may be holding your team back. By honing your analytical skills, you'll gain a deeper understanding of your team's strengths and weaknesses, enabling you to make informed decisions and drive meaningful change.

Anticipate and Overcome Team Challenges with Strategic Prioritization

Picture yourself as a proactive problem-solver, equipped to navigate any obstacle with ease. In this program, you'll learn how to anticipate and prioritize team issues using proven methodologies such as the Diamond Model and the 80/20 Principle. By looking at the entire change process and conducting root cause analysis, you'll be able to foresee difficulties, minimize roadblocks, and keep your team on track towards success.

Establish Clear and Effective Team Agreements for Success

Envision the harmony and efficiency of a team operating with clear guidelines and agreements. Through insights from thought leaders like Patrick Lencioni and utilizing our Team Agreements Checklist, you'll reflect on the key agreements your team needs to focus on. By establishing norms for communication, decision-making, and conflict resolution, you'll foster a culture of trust, collaboration, and accountability, setting your team up for success.

Empower Yourself to Lead with Confidence and Clarity

Picture yourself as a dynamic and influential leader, capable of driving your team towards excellence. By mastering the sub-skills of analytical thinking, strategic prioritization, and effective agreement-setting, you'll emerge as a visionary leader who can navigate challenges with grace and lead your team to unprecedented heights of success.

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.
