Answer all your questions about the SPARK Experience
But first, what is the SPARK experience?

The SPARK Experience is inspired by the New York Times bestselling book, SPARK: How to Lead Yourself and Others to Greater Success. Authors Angie Morgan, Courtney Lynch and Sean Lynch believe that leadership is not about job titles—it’s about action and behavior. They also believe the best leadership development experiences are delivered by in-house leaders—talented employees at all levels who step up to lead.

The SPARK Experience includes everything motivated leaders need to share leadership learning. First, choose how you’d like to develop—on an individual, team, or organizational level. Then, choose from videos, slides, handouts, reflection exercises, and more, to help you design your path. Browse this site to design the leadership learning experience that’s right for your time and your team.

Sparks are people who recognize that they can do things differently to create the change they’d like to see. A SPARK is also a moment when you realize that you can be a part of the solution you seek. You can create opportunities for change yourself.

When Sparks are ignited, they’re a catalyst for personal and organizational change. Sparks aren’t defined by the place they hold on an organizational chart. They’re defined by their actions, commitment, and will. They’re the ones who say “I’ll take responsibility,” or “This is tough, but we’ll get it done,” and then they follow through.

No. At Lead Star, we’re passionate about creating leadership development experiences. We encourage you to use and share these materials.

That’s completely up to you. While you can use these tools on your own, we encourage you to share SPARK with teams. Many companies, nonprofits and government agencies have chosen to launch an organization-wide SPARK Experience, allowing leaders at all levels to facilitate leadership learning. The SPARK Experience also allows managers to address culture, goals, strengths, and opportunities for development with their employees.
