Why you should follow this program

Your network matters.

What if we told you that your network has a highly significant influence over not only your business opportunities or perspectives but, essentially, who you are as a person?

In zoology, studies have shown that you can predict the mood and behavior of one chimp by observing which five chimps they hang out with the most. Similarly, Jim Rohn said you are the average of the five people you spend the most time with. You take on their behaviors and mindset until they're yours!
The thing about humans is that we're social animals. We need each other to be connected to other people to feel happy and fulfilled. Your network matters because it's where you find allies, mentors, co-workers, and partners. It's where you go for support when things get tough. It's where you get your best ideas and learn new things every day. Your network is also where you can make long-lasting connections that will last a lifetime.

Enhanced Networking Competence

Are you tired of attending networking events and feeling like you're just going through the motions? With our program, you'll gain a deeper understanding of networking dynamics. Through our assessment tool, you'll be able to quantify the quality of your network objectively. By identifying strengths and areas for improvement, you'll develop a strategic approach to expand your network effectively. Imagine confidently navigating networking events, knowing exactly how to engage and build meaningful connections that advance your personal and professional goals.

Strategic Relationship Building

Networking isn't just about collecting business cards or LinkedIn connections—it's about cultivating mutually beneficial relationships. In our program, you'll learn the art of "give and take" in networking. By reflecting on your interactions and learning to discern when to give, match, or take, you'll gain influencing power and establish yourself as a valuable asset within your network. Imagine being able to navigate the delicate balance between generosity and assertiveness, fostering relationships that lead to opportunities and growth for both parties involved.

Mindset Transformation

Do you dread networking events or feel uncomfortable approaching strangers for professional purposes? You're not alone. Many individuals struggle with negative perceptions of networking. However, in our program, we'll challenge you to change your attitude toward networking. Through simple yet powerful mindset shifts, you'll learn to embrace networking as a vital skill rather than a chore. Imagine reframing networking as an exciting opportunity to connect with like-minded individuals, share ideas, and collaborate on projects that align with your passions and ambitions.

Long-Term Career Development

Networking isn't just about immediate gains—it's an investment in your future success. By participating in our program, you'll lay the foundation for long-term career development. You'll cultivate a strong network of professionals who can offer support, guidance, and opportunities throughout your career journey. Whether you're seeking mentorship, career advancement, or entrepreneurial ventures, your network will be a valuable resource. Imagine having a network of trusted allies who are invested in your success and eager to help you achieve your goals, no matter where your career path takes you.

Master the skill of networking

Build the skill, by mastering the sub-skills first.

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.
