"Building a healthy lifestyle and experiencing optimal health, happiness, and mental well-being doesn't need to be an overwhelming and difficult process. 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 for you to build."
Nils Maes - Co-founder of SkillsGym Health
Soft skills are everything
Why you should follow this program
High EQ is a crucial asset in any workplace. Emotional intelligence is the ability to understand and manage your own emotions, as well as those of others. It includes self-awareness, self-regulation, motivation, empathy and social skills - all of which contribute to building strong teams and great relationships.
Without EI, we might be more likely to lash out or withdraw when faced with challenging situations. With EI, we're able to stay calm and focused on solving problems in the moment rather than letting those situations get the best of us.
This program focuses on the first step in building emotional intelligence (the step that focuses on you, not others); learning to recognize, understand and change the impact and dynamics of your thoughts, feelings, and emotions.
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 Emotional intelligence (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, focusing on 3 sub-skills:
Week 1 - 2
Practice emotional labeling
Practice naming your emotions with greater specificity as a way to process them more effectively.

At the kickstart of your 3-6 week skills development program, you will follow a webinar delivered by Nils Maes, co-founder of SkillsGym Health. Here are a few things you might like to know about him:
Nils is a versatile individual who began his journey as a professional athlete, excelling as a ballet dancer at the London and Paris Opera houses before honing his skills in martial arts during a two-year stint at a Sports University in China. Transitioning from athleticism, he ventured into entrepreneurship, owning a gym for two years before leveraging his expertise to spearhead the well-being programs for SkillsGym Health at SkillsGym two years ago.
Nils embodies the principles of our SkillsGym Health programs in his daily life. His routine includes tailored workouts, breathwork, and cold exposure, leveraging his expertise as a certified Wim Hof instructor. Additionally, he prioritizes quality time with his partner Sarah and his son. To maintain his sanity, Nils seeks solace in nature in his beloved 4x4, preferably exploring the wilderness in Alaska.
