Get your audience to listen, pay attention, and be motivated to action.
It’s often a strong individual contributor who gets promoted into a management role. And as soon as that responsibility changes…the rules change. How success is defined changes (team versus self). How work is prioritized changes (our work versus my work). And how that work is measured changes (professional development of others versus a task list of to-dos). Becoming a good and effective manager takes time, attention and practice. This class explores the foundations of management, and facilitates a conversation that is applicable and appreciated by both new and veteran managers.


  • Identify situational management styles that participants can immediately flex and leverage.
  • Start clarifying team – and manager – expectations.
  • Create a framework for effective and authentic discussions in 1:1 meetings.


Walk the Talk
Participants discuss what goes into the manager’s job, the paradigms and challenges of the role, and define the kind of manager they want to be. a new approach to coming up with a solution.
Styles of Management

Participants look at different styles of management and how and when to use them. Working with one of their own management challenges, they choose and practice

Setting Expectations
Participants rank the expectations they have for their team, expectations their team has for them and learn best practices for making improvements.
1:1 Meetings
Participants explore and learn best practices to improve the effectiveness of 1:1 meetings, including ways to increase engagement, strengthen commitments and make more productive use of time.


This SNP Public Workshop is a two-hour virtual live workshop on Zoom. We create a highly engaging, interactive session where participants ask questions, practice skills, and role-play scenarios.

Participants are encouraged to use real-life examples to make this as practical as possible. We offer a chance to collaborate with other participants in breakout rooms to network, make connections, and share ideas and insights. Every class draws upon the collective intelligence of the group while still giving participants the individual attention they deserve.

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.
