Why you should follow this program

Have you ever found yourself in a situation where you need to confront someone who has done something against what you agreed on? Or maybe it's time to fire your rude, incompetent employee. Or maybe the person you're confronting is your boss—and he's undermining you in front of prospective clients.

Whatever the situation, it can be hard to know how to handle it. Not only that, but most people don't know how to handle it well. They either yell, feel frustrated and upset, or they just avoid the conversation altogether.

But what if there was another way? What if there was a simple guide that could help you navigate those difficult conversations and build the skills needed for conflict resolution? Well, now there is!

Elevate Collaboration Beyond Differences

Learn techniques to shift perspectives, embrace an observer mindset, avoid conflict, and take an 'and-stance' for collective success.

Harmonize Relationships with Non-Violent Communication

Immerse yourself in the foundations of Non-Violent Communication pioneered by Marshall Rosenberg. Express needs gracefully and transform language for lasting harmony.

Foster a Culture of Safe and Constructive Feedback

Master strategies from Crucial Conversations, identify unsafety signals, and make feedback a secure space for open dialogue, growth, and continuous improvement.

Turn Conflicts into Catalysts for Success

Uncover the art of making feedback a constructive force. Share your intention, spot unsafety signals, and transform conflicts into powerful drivers of individual and collective growth.

Master the skill of conflict for the better (advanced)

Build the skill, by mastering the sub-skills first.
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, conversation-by-conversation, focusing on 3 sub-skills.

Sub-skill 1

Week 1 - 2 

Shift to third position

Learn simple techniques to help you move beyond individual differences and work for the greater good.

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.
