Soft skills are everything.

Conversations and habits are the way.


On-the-job practice

With SkillsGym's unique Habit Method, participants build skills quickly and effectively; by practicing micro-habits that fit into daily activities.

Through conversation

We don't build skills on an island. 90% of our habits are the result of our environment, so in building new habits, it's smart to involve those around you. 

Formal learning

Our live sessions are bite-sized, exciting, interactive activities designed to activate people toward impactful and measurable behavioral change.

Build key skills as a new leader

Step into your leadership role with confidence and competence with this powerful training program designed to ensure new leaders hit the ground running. Setting the stage for success, this comprehensive program equips you with essential leadership tools, techniques, and strategies to make an immediate impact and build a strong foundation for long-term growth. Don't miss this transformative opportunity to launch your leadership journey on the right trajectory and achieve outstanding results from day one.

Our approach to skill development makes it easy and effective by breaking down each skill into 3 foundational sub-skills, allowing you to focus on building each sub-skill for two weeks, and by the end of the sprint, you'll have mastered the skill as a whole.

1 skill - 3 sub-skills - 6 weeks
