Why you should follow this program

We all know how vital decision-making is. It's a core part of our lives—what job offer should I take? What should I have for lunch?

But it's also a challenge. Decision-making can be stressful and complex, with many personal factors (risk avoidance, intolerance for ambiguity, indecisiveness) and context-related factors (increasing complexity, speed of change, market volatility, uncertainty).

Luckily, decision-making isn't just an art or a talent: it's also a skill you can learn to improve over time. You can change your approach and mindset, build new habits, and practice sound processes to make decision-making easier and more effective.

Enhance Self-Awareness and Mitigate Biases

In this program, you will embark on a personalized journey of self-discovery to identify and understand your decision-making biases. By recognizing and managing these biases, you'll gain a heightened level of self-awareness that empowers you to make more informed and objective choices. Embrace the tools provided to keep your decision-making biases in check, fostering a more effective and rational decision-making process.

Broaden Your Perspective for Better Decisions

Gain a competitive edge in decision-making by breaking free from the shackles of single-focus thinking. Our program guides you to understand the pitfalls of tunnel vision and equips you with two powerful strategies to adopt a broader perspective. You will learn to navigate complexity with a comprehensive and strategic mindset.

Recognize When to Pivot and Let Go

In the dynamic landscape of decision-making, knowing when to pivot or let go is crucial. The program guides you to recognize the signs indicating it's time for a change. Unshackle yourself from the constraints of planning fallacies, sunk cost fallacies, and status quo bias, fostering adaptability and resilience in the face of evolving circumstances.

Cultivate a Strategic Decision-Making Mindset

This program goes beyond imparting tactical decision-making skills; it cultivates a strategic decision-making mindset. By incorporating lessons from various disciplines, you'll not only make better decisions in the short term but also develop a forward-thinking approach. Elevate your decision-making prowess, embracing a mindset that anticipates challenges and capitalizes on opportunities.

Master the skill of decision making (basic)

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.

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.
