Why you should follow this program

Stress is a fact of life.
It’s important to know that we can’t always control what happens to us, but we can control how we react to it. Research has shown that the effects of stress and exercise are greatly affected by the way we think about them. Mice who are free to exercise as much as they want get healthier and happier; mice who are forced to exercise the exact same amount, however, get weaker and sicker. And - though lab trials of forced exercise wouldn't make it past an ethics board - research does indicate that we humans function the same way.

In this program, you will experiment with CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) methods and mindset reprogramming. We will also look at breathwork, meditation, mindfulness practices and other evidence-based strategies for regulating our neurological state in order to build resilience. Another core component of building resilience is by intentionally practicing hormetic stress; this is the ideal level of exposure to stressors. Underexposure to stress leaves your body unchallenged, while overexposure could lead to health problems. Hormetic stress is that “sweet spot” where stress is beneficial for us.

Elevated Coping Capacities

Elevate your ability to navigate life's twists and turns with grace and resilience through this transformative program. By immersing yourself in techniques like mental contrasting, you'll unlock profound insights into how to approach challenges with a clearer perspective. As you harness the power of positive focus and the WOOP technique, you'll find yourself better equipped to not just cope, but thrive in the face of adversity. Experience a newfound sense of control and confidence as you apply these strategies to overcome obstacles and emerge stronger than ever before.

Cultivation of Empowering Mindsets

Embrace the principles of a growth mindset. Delve into actionable steps inspired by the pioneering work of Carol Dweck, gradually shifting your perspective towards one of resilience and possibility. By adopting the mindset of continuous improvement, you'll cultivate a profound belief in your ability to learn and adapt in any situation. As you internalize the power of "yet" and commit to ongoing progress, you'll unlock a reservoir of untapped potential, propelling you towards greater heights of personal and professional success.

Reframe Stressful Thought Patterns

Take control of your inner narrative and reclaim your mental well-being through the practice of challenging your beliefs. Explore evidence-based techniques rooted in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and the transformative insights of Byron Katie. Discover how to dismantle the destructive cycle of negative thinking and replace it with a more empowering mindset.

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.
