What are Skills Gyms?

Skills Gyms are highly interactive digital learning experiences where learners come together virtually to practice and apply key business skills. There are three principles which underpin the design of our Skills Gyms:

1: MOTIVATION:  you get to understand your mindset and behaviours and what motivates you to be your best.

2: CO-ACTIVITY: you don’t sit back and listen, you work in teams with others to practice new skills by problem solving together.

3: IMPACT: you bring your real-life business challenges with you and you work out how to use your learning to make a difference.

Who are these Skills Gyms for? 

  • Professionals looking to make a real impact in their current role.
  • Teams looking to upskill at speed, together.
  • Virtual teams looking to learn critical skills together.


What do you learn?

After researching 1,000+ business leaders in China, US & Europe, we discovered the critical skills every professional needs to know in order to thrive in the 21st century. We’ve based our Skills Gyms on the top three:

  1. The Innovation Mindset: How to unlock your innovation mindset and make ideas happen.
  2. Creative Problem Solving: How to use the power of design thinking to solve problems together.
  3. Accelerated Ways of Working: How to collaborate together to create value at the speed 21st century business requires.

What are the benefits?

Benefits for participants:

Fully researched for relevance: Following our extensive research, participants will learn skills that are critical for every professional to succeed in the 21st century.

Learn by doing: Learners get to practice and apply new skills in small teams with their fellow learners which they can then use in their own working environment.

1:2:1 tuition: As well as group learning, learners also receive personal coaching from one of our Artgym Coaches.

Engaging and collaborative environment: Skills Gyms are dynamic, group-learning sessions where participants learn new ideas, behaviours and skills together.

Learn from best practice: Participants will master globally-recognised best practices and be shown practical techniques in how to apply them.

Benefits for your organisation:

Whole teams can learn together: Up to 45 people from your locations around the world can interact and learn at the same time.

Learning that scales: Since each Skills Gym can host up to 45 learners, there is a much lower cost per participant ratio.

Save on travel time and costs: As it’s 100% digital, there’s no need to fly participants to a learning centre or to pay for hotel accommodation.

Relevant to your particular business issues: Participants need to demonstrate how to apply their learning to their own real world issues and challenges – resulting in real business impact for your organization.

Sustainable and lasting change: Participants will learn how to continuously adapt and innovate at the speed your business requires them to.

How are Skills Gyms delivered?

They are digital courses that are split into three parts.

Part 1: Pre-event assignment

Part 2: 1 x 2-hour Skills Gym

Part 3: Application follow up

Every Skills Gym session runs for two hours on Zoom Education. They are led in an energetic and action-focused way by an Artgym Skills Gym Instructor who has strong coaching skills and is an expert in that particular Skills Gym topic.

Our Skills Gyms blend break out group learning, expert facilitator coaching, case study learning, peer exchange & practice and break out rooms.

To complement the two-hour Skills Gym session, learners are sent interactive communications and assignments two weeks in advance to get them in the right mindset. They are then sent another set of interactive communications and assignments two weeks after the Skills Gym session, so they can demonstrate practical application of their learning.


What makes Skills Gyms different?

What sets Skills Gyms apart is our approach. Based on the latest research in psychology, neuroscience and next generation learning, we summarize our award-winning learning model in three words:

By applying this learning model, we guarantee maximum learning impact.

What is the cost?

Each Skills Gym costs from €4,000 Euros. This means that a Skills Gym can cost your business less than €100 Euros per learner.

The price for each Skills Gym includes a pre-Skills Gym assignment, downloadable learning content, a 2-hour virtual workout led by your Artgym Coach, post-Skills Gym  feedback and support from your Artgym Coach.

Learners can access their Skills Gym via Artgym’s Learning Platform (at no extra cost) or we can make it available through your in-house learning platform.
