Why you should follow this program

When you think of coaching, you might imagine a professional coach having a one-on-one conversation with a client. But in reality, most managers aren't professional coaches and there isn't space or time for regular in-depth coaching conversations.

A coaching framework often used by professional coaches is the 'GROW' model: helping coachees explore Goals, Reality, Obstacles/Opportunities, and the Way forward with them. You can use this model to structure in-depth coaching conversations, but also to transform daily business activities into coaching opportunities. If you take daily tasks and events as a starting point for reflecting on how the coachee goes about defining goals, how they view and interpret their reality, what obstacles and opportunities they see, and how they design and commit to action planning, then coaching ceases to be something that is "on top of work," but an essential part of the way work gets done.

Our program empowers you to seamlessly integrate coaching into your daily routine. No need for separate, time-consuming sessions.

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.
