FROM THE BOOK JACKET: Many believe that leaders are only those rare few in the upper echelons of a business or enterprise. The truth is, leaders can be found at any organizational level. These are the Sparks--the doers, thinkers, innovators, and key influencers who are catalysts for personal and organizational change. They aren't defined by their place on an organizational chart; rather, they are defined by their actions, commitment, and will.
When Sparks are ignited, their actions can directly shape the future. Sparks make things better.
Leadership experts Angie Morgan, Courtney Lynch, and Sean Lynch show you how to be a Spark by learning and adopting seven key leadership behaviors. Drawing on their backgrounds as military officers and their experiences as principals of Lead Star, a premier leadership consultancy that works with the world's best organizations, the authors present a road map for leadership development that will help you succeed.
Grounded in the latest leadership research, SPARK brings to life the guidance it promotes. Real-world examples from companies like Facebook and Boston Scientific highlight how Sparks distinguish themselves as leaders.
Not only does SPARK provide you with the encouragement and motivation to be a leader, it also offers online resources that will further support your leadership development.
With SPARK as a blueprint, anyone can become a catalyst for change, and any organization can identify and develop Sparks.
