The New York Timesâ€“bestselling, non-nonsense guide to becoming a better leader through 7 key behaviors, based on a mix of military and corporate training.
Leadership is not about job titlesâ€”itâ€™s about action and behavior.
â€śSparksâ€ť are the doers, thinkers, innovators, and key influencers who are catalysts for personal and organizational change. But these extraordinary individuals arenâ€™t defined by the place they hold on an organizational chartâ€”they are defined by their actions, commitment, and will.
Leadership experts Angie Morgan, Courtney Lynch, and Sean Lynch show how you can become a Spark by cultivating seven key leadership behaviors. Grounded in the latest research on leadership development, this fresh, accessible road map is packed with real-world stories from inside companies like Facebook, Google, and Boston Scientific, and from the authorsâ€™ own high-stakes, challenging experiences serving in the U.S. Armed Forces.
With SPARK as a blueprint, anyone can become a catalyst for change, and any organization can identify and develop Sparks.
