SNP Skills Sprints
Powered by Backstage

Immediate impact.
One skill at a time.

Powered by Backstage, SNP Skill Sprints take 1:1 coaching to the next level. We dedicate 3 sessions to 1 skill and 1 skill only. With this approach, employees get to learn, practice, self-reflect, and receive feedback to break bad habits and build successful ones.  

With 30 years of experience working with leaders from around the world, we’ve curated the set of skills required to motivate, inspire, and drive business impact.  To hold your employees more accountable to these skills, we’ve partnered with Backstage. Their coaching platform allows coaches to better assess, train, and reinforce skill development. 

Skills Meet Tech


SNP specializes in serving high-performing leaders and teams. For 30 years, we’ve worked behind the scenes with Google, Facebook, Airbnb, SAP, Salesforce, Spotify, and others. We draw from this experience and with an open and honest approach, we teach tangible communication skills, which are always personalized.

Companies trust SNP because we make learning practical. Always have. In the 90s we brought camcorders (remember those?) to our 1:1s, now we bring Backstage.

SNP + Me360

The Backstage app brings skill training and reinforcement together. On it, employees meet with their SNP Coach for 1:1 sessions, and with the assistance of live video recorded practice, instant replay, and coach critique, they build successful habits that stick.

Backstage makes it easy for learning administrators to enroll new team members for skill development in a single click and keep track of program status across their organization.

“One-on-one SNP coaching has been one of the pillars of the APM (associate program manager) program from it’s early days to the present. Current APMs often cite their SNP coaches as instrumental to their growth and development on their paths to becoming the current and future leaders of silicon valley.”

Diana Ly, former APM Program Manager and PM Staff Lead at Google

GMU Live

Hyatt tapped SNP to create a video promoting GMU Live — the onsite portion of General Manager University onboarding program. SNP traveled to Chicago for the shoot to coach the speakers on camera and capture compelling b-roll that highlighted the new general managers’ emotional, and educational journey into Hyatt.

Hyatt Glasswing Overview

SNP produced an internal marketing video to help raise awareness and adoption of Hyatt’s new Glasswing application, which tracks real-time financial data, KPIs, and other core metrics for owners and operators. From conducting the interviews, to coaching the speakers on camera and editing the video, SNP owned the content creation at each step of production.

Back in 2013, Asana was still a young company and some of their managers were experiencing leadership roles for the first time. So they needed to learn how to be, well, leaders. Like how to be more influential, directive, confident, and how to deal with conflict. Because if they could flourish then Asana could start to scale even faster (and without so many growing pains).

Enter SNP.

We started with just one 1:1 coaching relationship. But the good word spread fast. Soon enough more people from Asana’s management team were seeking our unique third party perspective, skill-based approach, and communications expertise to build their personal brand, strengthen their careers, and achieve more. (And did we mention the coaching program was a perk that attracted new talent? We didn’t? Well…) Eight years later and Asana is still scaling. And we’re still by their side helping them do it.
