THE RIGHT COACHING GETS THE RIGHT RESULTS

More and more organizations have recognized the value in building a culture of coaching to offer employees at all levels — not just executives and managers — providing the opportunity to grow their skills, enhance their value and reach their professional goals.

But not all coaching is equal. Helping organizations build a strong coaching culture to meet their strategic goals takes the right integrated coach partner.

OUR LEADERS STAND OUT

They are always fresh and evolving – there is no such thing as arrived. We keep them growing and stretching so they don’t plateau, homogenize, or fade to the back.

Secret Weapon leaders become pacesetters, role models, mentors, and launchers.

Our work is centered on coaching the mindset and methods that we believe are the essential attributes of all trusted leaders…

They are R.E.A.L.

THE SECRET WEAPON DIFFERENCE

WE ARE STRENGTHS-CENTRIC​

First and foremost, strengths are king. Leadership fads come and go but playing from your strengths will always be a formula for success. We help clients identify their core strengths and amplify those talents for maximum impact. This is our passion and our specialty.

WE LOVE RESULTS​

Unlike cheerleading or “how does that make you feel?” non-directive type of coaching, we love to get to WORK. Our leaders experience progressive breakthroughs as we expose them to targeted teaching and ongoing learning resources that are curated for their specific skill state and needs.

WE DON'T DO PLATITUDES

We are obsessed with the tactical how-to’s and actionable insights. Beyond inspiration and information, we equip our leaders with mindsets and methods that are effective and sustainable – in their own authentic style. Our approach is 100% original to the individual, their role, organization and desired goals.

WE ARE A CATALYST

Optimizing and elevating talent individually, within teams and across the organization. The ripple effect of igniting the performance engine of a leader or business unit is nothing short of “phenomenal”. It’s the word we hear most often to describe the secret weapon effect. Our work takes on a life of its own – creating greater cohesion, deepened engagement, and self-directed performance accountability.

WE PARTNER WITH THE BEST​

Hungry, high-octane leaders and organizations turn to us for a non-conventional, cutting-edge way to maximize and reward their most valued and essential contributors. We are a strategic “ace in the hole” advisor and partner to those with complex roles, who guide and anchor the organization at all levels. Those who have to stay in top performance shape. Most leaders have already read the bestsellers and attended the best-of seminars. We go beyond head knowledge to teach them how to amplify their talents and influence in real life with real results. The end result becomes exponential learning that far exceeds the initial goals.

Unlocking Innovation Confidence Potential Collaboration Growth Results Influence 

“Where do I start? You are a wealth of gifts. There is not a person you touch that is not 1000x better post. You have awakened and re-energized me. I have stepped everything up to the next level.”
“I had high expectations when we decided to make the investment. I can say that what you have achieved with our already talented leaders is nothing short of phenomenal. It soared past my expectations. Bravo!”
“I thought I knew what coaching was, and had a coach before. After Secret Weapon I realize this is in a class of its own. This is the real thing.”
“What I have learned is that it is about making a completely whole individual and involves self-reflection on both a personal and professional level in order to make significant breakthroughs.”
