"It's our job at SkillsGym to make skills mastery easy for you. You don't need to go through a ton of programs or books, or test a dozen techniques that don't work. We have deconstructed the process into a few essential habits and conversations for you to have."
Sarah Cherif - CEO at CUTESolutions
Soft skills are everything

Why you should follow this program

We often hear coworkers and friends muttering that they feel “burned out”—but what exactly does that mean? Simply defined, burnout is a continued state of mental, physical, and emotional exhaustion brought on by prolonged, excessive stress. Whereas stress is generally specific and immediate, burnout comes on more gradually. In the days and months leading up to burnout, you’ll feel overwhelmed by the demands and deadlines in your life. You’ll have too much to do and not enough resources to get it done. And so, you’ll work at maximum capacity—depleting your energy until you have nothing left.

We're here to change that. With a series of simple evidence-based suggestions and protocols you can begin to more clearly identify any signs of risk and take effective action against them as part of your day-to-day, both in and out of work.
  • Evidence-based: the best habits for you to build in order to master this skill according to research
  • Tested and approved by thousands of participants
  • Designed for social learning: go through the program with your buddy or team to build in social accountability and support

Master the skill of burnout prevention

We have deconstructed this skill into 3 sub-skills. And you will build one habit, and have one conversation around each sub-skill in a period of 3-6 weeks.
The program consists of a 1-hour webinar to kick-start your 3-6 week practice period in the workflow or in your personal life.

Master the skill step-by-step

You don't need tons of time or willpower to build a new skill. What you do need, is consistency. That's why after the kick-start webinar, you will practice building tiny habits (so small you will have no reason not to do it) in the workflow or in your personal life. You will build this skill habit-by-habit, focusing on 3 sub-skills:


Week 1 - 2 

Are you heading toward burnout?

Learn to identify the signs of burnout and take steps to address it at the early stages.

Week 5 - 6 

Practice your right to disconnect

Learn how to disconnect strategically when appropriate, so that you can reconnect more fully when needed.
Discover a resilient you through our Burnout Prevention Program, where early detection, renewal habits, strategic disconnection, and empowering reconnection come together to safeguard your well-being, paving the way for a fulfilling and balanced life.

What you will achieve by following this program

Early Detection and Proactive Intervention

Learn to identify the early warning signs of burnout, enabling you to take timely and proactive measures to address the underlying issues. By catching burnout in its infancy, you can prevent its escalation and maintain a sustainable level of well-being.

Establishing Renewal as a Habit

Develop the habit of recognizing when you need a break and incorporating regular renewal practices into your routine. This proactive approach ensures that self-care becomes a consistent part of your lifestyle, promoting resilience against the daily stressors that can lead to burnout.

Strategic Disconnection for Mental Rejuvenation

Acquire the skill of strategically disconnecting from work, allowing for dedicated periods of mental rejuvenation. This deliberate separation facilitates a healthier work-life balance, preventing the accumulation of stress and fostering a more sustainable and enjoyable professional journey.

Empowering Reconnection for Enhanced Productivity

Gain the empowerment to fully disconnect during breaks, fostering a genuine sense of relaxation and reconnection. This intentional downtime leads to enhanced focus and productivity upon returning to work, creating a positive cycle that not only prevents burnout but also elevates your overall performance.

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.
