Master the Art of Securing Buy-In for Feedback

In many situations, giving feedback can be met with resistance or defensiveness. Our program equips you with the skill of securing a 'micro-yes' from the recipient before delivering feedback. This technique, inspired by Leeann Renniger, ensures that the person is receptive to your input and actively engaged in the feedback process. By gaining their buy-in, you create a collaborative and open environment where feedback is more likely to be accepted and acted upon, ultimately strengthening your relationships.

Enhance Your Emotional Expression and Intelligence

Effective communication involves not only the words we use but also our ability to express emotions authentically and intelligently. Our program guides you through the 'emotional replay' technique, inspired by Daniel Goleman, which helps you become more comfortable with expressing your feelings. By enhancing your emotional intelligence, you'll gain a deeper understanding of your own emotions and those of others, leading to more empathetic and meaningful interactions. This, in turn, fosters stronger personal and professional relationships.

Promote Non-Violent Communication

Communication can sometimes become confrontational or lead to misunderstandings. Our program emphasizes the principles of non-violent communication, inspired by Marshall Rosenberg. You'll learn to express your needs and provide feedback in a compassionate and non-confrontational manner. This approach creates a safe and respectful space for open dialogue, enabling you to address issues and conflicts constructively while preserving the integrity of your relationships.

Foster a Culture of Understanding and Growth

By developing these sub-skills, you'll contribute to the creation of a more nurturing and productive environment. Your ability to secure buy-in, express emotions effectively, and practice non-violent communication will not only benefit you personally but also inspire those around you to follow suit. Together, you'll foster a culture of understanding, growth, and open communication that elevates the entire team or organization.

Master the skill of giving feedback (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.

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.
