Why would you want one? 

Employees who feel the greatest sense of belonging at work when colleagues check in with them about how they are doing, both personally and professionally. 

Harvard Business Review


People who overestimate the awkwardness and underestimate the value of insightful or “deep” conversations.

Kellogg School of Management  

Employees who say they’d work harder if they were better appreciated. 


Employees who say being recognized motivates them in their job.


Oftentimes the big conversations we know we need to have are the most difficult to begin; they feel awkward, strange, uncomfortable. So we stumble our way through or avoid them altogether, and a negative feedback loop is quickly set into play: the less we do it, the harder it gets.

The bottom line for our actual lived experience is that we miss opportunities to grow, to share, and to create a team that genuinely loves working together. Not only does our output suffer, we actually get less out of life.

That’s why SkillsGym is committed to helping you have more and better conversations at work. Small changes, big results.

Why a habit festival?

Our goal is to help organizations build strong cultures one habit at a time. Nothing fuels behavioral change like a high-energy group event, backed by evidence-based tools you can take home with you when you’re done. 

What is a habit festival?

It’s a lot of things: a moment of connection, an inspiring experience…the habit festival brings together bright and curious people for a unique event, sparking conversations that are experienced by most people as "eye-opening" and “transformative."

Sharing is caring! The first 10 people to register can invite 5 managers to join usIt is the job of managers to create a robust and engaging conversation culture, to build an environment that not only includes but inspires our team to be at their best.

After that, everyone is free to bring along one colleague from their organization. 

Of course you're welcome to come alone if you prefer. 

Quartier Papier provides the perfect backdrop for a fun and intensive afternoon dedicated to mastering the art of conversation as a critical element of your day-to-day reality.
