Why you should follow this program

Building a high-performing team is akin to laying a strong foundation – it requires careful planning, deliberate effort, and a clear vision for success. Just as a sturdy foundation ensures the stability and longevity of a structure, establishing the right elements within your team sets the stage for exceptional performance and achievement.

At SkillsGym, we understand the importance of laying this strong foundation. Our program is designed to guide you through the process, focusing on four crucial dimensions:

A Culture of Trust: Foster an environment where team members feel safe to voice their ideas, express concerns, and collaborate openly.

Accountability: Hold each other to high standards and ensure that every team member takes ownership of their actions and commitments.

A Strong Focus on Results: Set clear goals, track progress diligently, and celebrate achievements to maintain momentum and drive success.

Individuals Who Take Up Responsibility: Cultivate a team of individuals who are proactive, self-motivated, and willing to step up to challenges and opportunities.

By focusing on these dimensions, you'll build a team that not only meets expectations but exceeds them consistently. Join us on this journey and discover how to lay the groundwork for a high-performing team that thrives in any environment.

Unlock the secret's of high-performing teams

In this program, you'll delve deep into the four key dimensions of team culture: Results, Connectivity, Trust, and Responsibility. By gaining insights into these areas, you'll be equipped to identify opportunities for enhancing accountability within your team, paving the way for unprecedented success and achievement.

Nurture psychological safety for lasting impact

Picture the transformative power of creating a psychologically safe environment for your team. Through candid conversations and proven methodologies pioneered by thought leaders like Amy Edmondson and the Aristotle Project, you'll explore the concept of psychological safety and its profound impact on team performance. By fostering an atmosphere where every team member feels valued, respected, and empowered to voice their ideas and concerns, you'll lay the groundwork for innovation, collaboration, and sustainable growth.

Create collaborative team norms for success

Imagine the satisfaction of establishing clear and effective team norms that drive collaboration and cohesion. In this program, you'll have the opportunity to reflect on existing team dynamics and identify areas for improvement. By collaboratively defining and (re-) setting team norms and agreements, you'll create a shared understanding of how your team operates, fostering accountability, mutual respect, and productivity. Together, you'll lay the groundwork for a culture of excellence that propels your team towards its goals with confidence and clarity.

Empower yourself to lead with impact

Envisage yourself as a catalyst for positive change within your team and organization. By honing your skills in the areas of accountability, psychological safety, and collaborative teamwork, you'll emerge as a dynamic and influential leader capable of driving meaningful results. Through practical exercises, real-world case studies, and expert guidance, you'll gain the tools and insights needed to lead with authenticity, empathy, and vision, inspiring those around you to strive for excellence and embrace their full potential.

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.
