Why you should follow this program

Before you read further, we'd like to ask you a simple question: have we got your full attention?
Probably not. And that's especially true if you look at this in your office. Finding focus is something almost everyone has to deal with. And research figures show that in the workplace, we are having more and more trouble keeping both internal and external stimuli at bay.

Professor Gloria Mark of the Department of Informatics at the University of California says email, social media, notifications, and countless other digital distractions are eroding our ability to concentrate on individual tasks in the 21st Century. Back in 2004, workers switched their attention every three minutes on average. In 2012, that was down to one minute and 15 seconds. By the summer of 2014, it was an average of 59.5 seconds.
The bad news is that our brains are easily reprogrammed: if we are frequently interrupted, our brains will start interrupting themselves to stick to the pattern - even when there are no external interruptions. The neuroplasticity of our brains is also what saves us here! Looking at the protocols of people studying the art of focus and concentration (like Daniel Goleman, Gloria Mark, Cal Newport, and Chris Bailey), you can build and regain the skill of hyperfocus and concentration.









Master the skill of Focus and Concentration

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

SkillsGym Health uses the same habit-focused method that has become synonymous with SkillsGym's approach. This method has assisted numerous world-class organizations such as Samsung, Deloitte, and Ikea, along with thousands of managers and their teams, in enhancing their soft skills. Now, SkillsGym extends its expertise by offering programs designed to expedite 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.
