About Spark

There’s a defining moment in your life when a spark ignites. We fan that spark into a flame to create a community of leaders who become the change they want to see in the world.

What sparked the spark?

An event, that lead to a relationship, that lead to an idea. A shared vision, shared values, a burning desire to add
value and be the change we wanted to see in the world.

What defines us?

Community

We are connected beings and need to be part of a safe, supportive community. We reach out first.

 

Encouragement

Helping people move forward by walking alongside them. We’re supportive and recognize and affirm a person’s strengths.

 

Compassion

Accepting people as they are, understanding their behavior and separating it from who the person is. We listen first and put ourselves in the other person’s shoes.

Integrity

We believe in consistently doing the small things right, even when it’s hard or no one is looking.

 

Playfulness

We have to choose happiness because it’s about attitude. It’s ok to have fun and let the inner child come out to play.

 

Growth

Being open minded and looking for ways to improve on your strengths. If you’re not growing, you’re dying.
