Skhit.com began during a conversation between an expert behavioural scientist and a wizard in a coffee shop that also sold anything. The conversation went exactly like this:
WIZARD: "Let's train people to be the superhero version of themselves."
EXPERT: "Training is boring and stupid."
WIZARD: "True. Let's ensure that it's definitely not boring then."
EXPERT: "I'd buy that. Deal."
Wizard waves his wand.
EXPERT: "Nothing happened."
Wizard looks at his wand and taps it on his hand.
WIZARD: "Ahhhh... SKHIT!"
An explosion explodes explosively. The dust settles and it becomes apparent that there is a magical computer device thing that has an amazingly magical program on it that is both excellently stupid and hilariously effective. Then it vanishes.
EXPERT: "Well that went well then."
WIZARD: "Yes, let's buy a coffee right now. To go."
The magic computer device thing then magically appeared in front of you, and is now conveniently waiting for you to stop procrastinating and start the program to superheroize yourself now.
... unless you want to read this:
Skhit.com is skit-based high intensity training designed to provide you with specific tips, skills, strategies or insights to improve skills and increase results across a number of areas of business, life, sales, team-work, leadership and being a superhero. It caters for multiple learning modalities, focuses on adult learning techniques, contains mostly comedic skits and parodies using some universally well-known characters like the gangster Cyril The Hammer Axe Cutter Sharp-Knife, as well as lesser known ones like Captain America, Dracula, Santa Claus and Batman. Some episodes are downright disastrous, like the Mickey Mouse one. But the idea of the sketch-based comedic skits is that you'll actually WANT to continue going through the program to see what insanity happens next. And all the while you'll accidentally learn stuff and be challenged to then do the daily activities for 5 days.
Each course has a series of modules that each have videos, explanations, and activities structured for you to be completed each week. But if you are super-keen, you might get it done a little faster as each module will be released 5 days after the previous one. The pacing is designed for you to immerse in each module so you are actively doing something each day to grow even more. Just getting all the knowledge quickly and not doing anything with it won't get you the result you want. I've done that before too, and it doesn't work as effectively.
Okay so here's what you'll see for each module:
1. There will be a short video. In it I introduce a key concept from a newsdesk, then you watch a skit of the concept in practice (usually in a very weird or humorous way - but you'll see), and then there will be a super brief executive summary in the video.
2. Then you'll be taken to a section in which I deconstruct the video. I'll talk you through the key elements of the skit like a director talking about a movie. I'll share the key things to look out for and you might end up wanting to watch the skit again. It's an audio file that you can listen to, and I've included the transcript of what I say so you can follow as well.
So whether you prefer watching, reading or listening, I've got you covered. And the doing part comes next.
3. Then it's time for you to put some ideas into action. For this I've created Your One Week Worksheet with activities for you to do or things to think about for the next 5 days. You can print this out if you want and create a journal for the program if you wish. I've left space on each page for you to document what you're doing, the insights you've come up with, and how you felt or thought about doing a particular activity. Again, this is the part where you turn a concept into a practice and where you increase your Confidence and develop an even more victorious Mindset.
4. Finally, there's an optional opportunity for you to connect with a community, discuss questions and connect with me, my team or others who have been through or are going through the program too. This is a great way to be encouraged by what others are doing and thinking, and to encourage others with your own ideas and experiences too. I'd like to encourage you to at least document that you watched, listened, read and did the exercises, or share some quick thoughts. This has been shown to increase learning and keep the program top of mind, because I also want to ensure that you get the most out of this program by completing all of it.
One more thing: from time to time we might add new bits and improvements to this course based on the feedback we receive, so please let us know if there are areas you'd like to develop or content you'd like us to explore in a bit more depth.
Time for you to develop even more confidence and cultivate and sustain a mindset of victory! So... let's really get started!
Oh, and thanks again for joining us. You're awesome by the way. :)

P.S. By now you'll want to stop reading this and start your program so you can be even more awesome! Yes, I know that's practically impossible because of how awesome you actually are already, but go see for yourself. You're about to become even more awesomer!
