How do I lead so people want to follow?

Ever wonder how some people make it look so easy?

Not only do they accomplish tasks with ease, but the teams and people working with them want to give their all.

More often than not, the leaders driving these results are not even in a position of authority! They’re leading through influence and, what’s more, people are giving more effort because they feel a true sense of connection.

The concept of leadership is changing.

Command and control leadership is a thing of the past. There’s a new way to lead — a new approach to innovate, build collaboration, and engage individuals so they’re motivated to be their best — and you can do it by becoming a Spark.

When Sparks are ignited, they’re a catalyst for personal and organizational change. Register for a SPARK Experience Workshop and learn how you can demonstrate SPARK behaviors and create the change you’d like to see.

The SPARK Experience Workshop

Join us for a one-day, hands-on workshop lead by Lead Star's team of New York Times best-selling authors and international leadership development consultants. The Lead Star Team will show you how to lead yourself and others to greater success.

What you'll learn:

  • How to expand your self-awareness so you can make the most of your strengths and cover for your weaknesses
  • The 7 fundamental SPARK behaviors every effective leader demonstrates
  • How to lead when you don’t have authority
  • How to craft your leadership story — one you can be proud to own
  • The most common pitfalls and traps to avoid when it comes to leadership

Throughout the day, you’ll participate in activities and simulations that will give you practical ideas and solutions you can bring back to your workplace.

What Others Have Said

"SPARK is a myth-destroying book that will make you rethink both the theory and practice of leadership. Whatever your job title or circle of influence, this book can help you light your own spark.”

Daniel H. Pink, best-selling author of Drive and To Sell Is Human

“The authors’ recommendations for behavioral change, drawn from their early years in the military and then a decade training corporate America, are well researched and documented, and also just have a commonsense appeal.”

Claire Shipman, best-selling author of The Confidence Code and Womenomics

"I've attended multiple leadership development programs... in my opinion there is no comparison between others and Lead Star. I truly grew as a leader from the Lead Star coaching experience. Each part of the program challenged me on many different levels and has helped me succeed in my recent promotion and in pursuit of my personal goals."

Jennifer Barker, Commerce Bank

“The skills I learned as a Marine 50 years ago have been the foundation of my leadership approach throughout my career. SPARK has captured those critical concepts, and presents them in an organized, effective way that makes it easy to bring them to life in today’s challenging business environment. Having worked first hand with Angie, Courtney and Sean in the past, it is no surprise that they have captured the essence of effective leadership in SPARK.”

Dave Gagnon, CEO, Cafe Rio Mexican Grill
