- Leading with Spark: Create a Culture Where Everyone Matters
Transformational leaders are divergent thinkers who refuse to settle for a status quo culture. They are relentless in creating an environment where everyone belongs and brings their best selves to work. This is a conscious inclusive mindset that fosters growth, high performance, and trust. Culture is more than the mission and vision of the organization. Culture happens when no one is looking. As business changes at the speed of light, an organization’s culture will stand the test of time if it’s built on the right foundation. Leading with Spark is understanding that the purpose of leadership is to invite men and women on a journey to discover the leader within themselves while they’re following you. A leader can only take people to a place that he or she has already experienced. Leading with Spark is understanding that innovation only happens when everyone has a seat at the table and their voice can be heard. Leading with Spark is releasing the need to always be right and shifting to creating a culture that evolves from “me to we”. Forward thinking leaders are forward looking leaders who understand the difference between effectiveness and busyness. Culture is the game changer that attracts talent, engages customers, and establishes a brand in the next decade.
