Overview
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

Leadership isn't about a job title - it's about action and behavior.


In SPARK, entrepreneurs, business consultants and military Veterans Angie Morgan, Courtney Lynch, and Sean Lynch show how anyone can become an extraordinary leader by embracing seven key behaviors.

Many people believe that leaders are the rare few at the upper echelons of a business or other enterprise. But the truth is leaders can be found at any level of an organization.

These are the Sparks - the doers, thinkers, innovators, and key influencers who are catalysts for personal and organizational change. Sparks aren't defined by the place they hold on an organizational chart. They are defined by their actions, commitment, and will.

When Sparks are ignited, their actions can shape their future. They make things better. They're the individuals who have the courage to challenge the status quo and take action.


Frederick W. Smith, Chairman & CEO of FedEx Corporation, adds: The concept of leadership is not a difficult one to understand. It's that straight-forward, but it's by no means intuitive. It must be learned and practiced. SPARK will help you do just that. 
 


SPARK's insights were hard-earned by its authors, Angie Morgan (Marine Corps), Courtney Lynch (Marine Corps), and Sean Lynch (Air Force), who today are sought-after consultants and keynote speakers, through their firm Lead Star, due to the relevant, engaging way they help individuals reimagine themselves as leaders so they can reach their true potential.

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.

Leaders arent born, theyre made, claim the owners of Lead Star, a corporate consulting firm, in this encouraging, if familiar, business guide. Two former Marines and one former member of the Air Force, the authors credit their military service with hugely improving their leadership skills. They stress that nobody simply springs from the womb ready to lead. The key is to make the behavioral changes needed to be a leader, rather than assuming these qualities are inherent. Moreover, these are achievable by anyone who is sufficiently committed. Sparks are leaders who may not (yet) see themselves as leaders, but who have all the necessary characteristics: drive, motivation, and the ability to see past the problem sitting directly in front of them. The authors, using stories from their lives in business and the military, discuss seven behaviors as essential to becoming a Spark, including the ability to foster trust, accountability, and acting with intent. Theyre putting different and friendlier language to leadership and have added many references to military service, which makes them credible, but once readers get past the more approachable terminology, theyre unlikely to find much different here. Agent: Esmond Harmsworth, Zachary Shuster Harmsworth. (Jan.)
