Why you should follow this program

Do you feel like you're being recognized and appreciated for the right things?
Are you getting the recognition you deserve?
Are you giving people around you the recognition they need?

We are all responsible for contributing to a culture of recognition. We can't leave this to a formal top-down program based on milestones and pre-defined timelines. Although such a traditional approach has its value, we have to ensure it turns into something other than a bureautic process that takes away the spontaneity and personal connection we all fundamentally need as human beings.

Fulfillment through Recognition

Imagine a workplace where you not only receive acknowledgment for your achievements but also feel that it's genuinely tailored to your efforts. Our program ensures you're recognized for the right things, fostering a sense of personal connection and fulfillment.

Reciprocal Recognition

Ever felt like your hard work goes unnoticed? Our program guarantees that you get the recognition you deserve. By acknowledging your contributions, we empower you to thrive and contribute even more positively to your team.

Cultivating a Positive Environment

It's not just about what you receive; it's about what you give. In our program, you play an active role in creating a culture of recognition. By appreciating those around you, you contribute to a positive and uplifting atmosphere that benefits everyone.

Human-Centric Approach

Traditional recognition programs often become bureaucratic and lose the essence of spontaneity. Our approach ensures that recognition is not a mere formality but a genuine, human connection. We believe in avoiding biases, balancing recognition with appreciation, and understanding individual needs to make it a truly enriching experience.

Master the skill of recognition culture

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.
