"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 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.
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 Decision making (basic)
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, conversation-by-conversation, focusing on 3 sub-skills:
Week 1 - 2
Keep Your Decision Making Biases in Check
Reflect on which types of biases you are most prone to, and discover tools for managing them.
Week 3 - 4
Ditch the single-focus approach
Be aware of our human tendency for tunnel vision when making complex decisions, and discover 2 strategies for taking a broader perspective.

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 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.
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.
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.
