Sparks are people who recognize that they don’t have to accept what’s given to them. They can do things differently to create the change they’d like to see. Sparks are the doers, thinkers, innovators, and key influencers who are catalysts for personal and organizational change. They are defined by their actions, commitment, and will. When Sparks are ignited, their actions can directly shape the future. Sparks make things better.
A Spark is also a moment when you realize that you have the ability to be a part of the solution you seek. You don’t have to wait around for someone to create opportunities for you. You can create them for yourself. A Spark is all about change.
To avoid the disconnect between your values and actions, be a Spark who takes personal character development seriously. Sparks are committed to bettering themselves and others.
A Spark is a person who has the courage to say that things can be better than they are right now, the will to go forward with her ideas, and commitment to follow through and achieve the goals set for herself or the organization. To be an accoutable Spart, lead with accountability so that you’re modeling the behavior you expect from others.
Without ignition, nothing happens and nothing gets done
Summing-up: Becoming a Spark is a choice, and one that begins with rethinking how you respond to the most pressing challenges you’re facing. Do you submit to them, assuming that you can’t posibly do anything about them? Or do you take a stance and lead?
