Why you should follow this program

Are you feeling lost? Like you're stuck in a rut and don't know how to get out?

It's okay. We've all been there.
It's easy to feel like your life is going nowhere, or that you'll never be able to achieve your dreams. But there's a way out of this—and it's actually pretty simple: find your ikigai!

Ikigai is an ancient Japanese philosophy that has enveloped the way Japanese people live. Some believe it’s even the reason for their happiness and longevity. It’s no wonder western culture has chosen to adopt it as their way of discovering a meaningful career.
Ikigai is a Japanese concept that means your ‘reason for being.' 'Iki' in Japanese means ‘life,' and 'gai' describes value or worth. Your ikigai is your life purpose or your bliss. It’s what brings you joy and inspires you to get out of bed every day.
The Westernised version of ikigai says you’ve found your dream career when your career includes these four qualities: What you love; What you're good at; What you can be paid for; What the world needs.









Master the skill of Ikigai or the art of purpose

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.
