The Five Spark Platform
Identifying and applying talents
Through group calls, readings, and targeted exploratory work, participants reveal ways to creatively apply their talents toward solving pressing problems in their organizations. We believe that focusing on strengths rather than weaknesses, is the only way to truly achieve success.
The Positive Shift
Guide participants in working through fears and identifying hidden biases. Successful leaders need to understand and confront the gremlins that hold them back, and understand that everyone around them faces their own, unique obstacles, as well.
Support focused service. Ignited Nation believes in the power of service, which is why we incorporated an interactive, inspiring way for participants to identify and support the causes that truly matter to them — either those currently supported by their organizations, or other interest areas of their choosing.
Partnered by Design
Advocate collaboration. Leaders are rarely taught how to maximize partnerships. They either fall into a great collaboration, and don’t know why it works, or they struggle when partnered with people who are different from themselves.
Giving Back, Making it Real: Presenting Final Projects Content
Put learning into action. Ignited Nation believes strongly that service is a critical component to employee engagement and corporate citizenship. Participants will plan, design, and execute a meaningful, real-world project while working in tandem with a partner. The team will apply their experiences and learning from the program to ignite change in the world.
Participants in the Ignited Nation 9-month leadership program will:
- Develop a deeper awareness of their natural gifts and hidden de-railers.
- Glean insights about others, including strengths and gaps, and will learn how to design smarter partnerships.
- Understand their impact within their organizations and how to aim it constructively for success
- Get practical experience in putting their learning and passions into action
- Learn transferable skills, applicable to any work assignment
- Believe they are catalysts for change, and capable of setting goals, execute plans, build smarter partnerships, and track and measure results
