Igniting Team Performance


We are talent visionaries, igniting people power in small companies with big plans. We prepare leaders for the challenges and opportunities ahead.

SparkWorks® helps you pinpoint, diagnose and address what’s getting in the way of profitable and scalable growth.  For some, that may mean defining and honing your employee value proposition. For others, it may mean creating a stronger leadership team. Whatever the situation, we work with you to create an intentional talent strategy and build the framework for future success.

Successful executive leaders understand that having a strong, well-oiled team makes everything run more smoothly - decisions are made faster, mutual trust skyrockets, the benefit of the doubt is earned, and setbacks are met with fierce resilience. If your human capital strategy is clear, growing pains aren’t so very painful after all.

Companies thrive when their leadership clearly defines and articulates “how” things should operate in the organization, including those special qualities employees are expected to bring to the job every day.  When your intentional culture is actualized, the people you hire and retain become a key part of your competitive advantage, and it becomes easier to differentiate your business from your talent competitors.  

Achieving your intentional corporate culture requires intention, alignment, planning and diligence to ensure you’re on the right path.
