As internationally recognized academic medical researchers leading large teams, The Sparks Group is our secret weapon. Our partnership goes back to 2016. In the years since, we’ve invested in numerous coaching engagements, workshops, programs, and the like, supporting our most junior staff up to and including the two of us. They provide bespoke solutions based on our context, our needs, and our desired outcomes. Part of those custom solutions is their diverse bench of coaches and consultants – every practitioner we’ve worked with has been terrific. You can’t go wrong working with The Sparks Group!+-

Transitions in organizations such as ours are inevitable and frankly, needed. In developing and elevating this leadership team, it became obvious a talented facilitator and coach could be a true ‘difference maker.’ After interviewing a number of organizations, the decision became clear…The Sparks Group led by Jessica Bronzert.
Steve Luquire, Chairman
We asked The Sparks Group to step in to run our Management Development Program at the last minute when our legacy provider couldn’t continue. Not only were they flexible and adaptable, they brought new ideas and improvements to the program that our high potential leaders loved and will make a difference to our business. We look forward to our continued partnership.+-

As the inventors of Bubble Wrap™, we have been transforming the world of small parcel packaging since 1959. We recently engaged The Sparks Group to help us redesign our global organization to best deliver value to the surging eCommerce fulfillment market sector we serve, and this decision made all the difference. [Their] highly personalized approach made the process fun, collaborative and insightful, and we ended up with a better result than we ever could have imagined going into the process. Their combination of organizational design and organizational behavior expertise was exactly what we needed.+-

We have been partnering with The Sparks Group on a large-scale executive coaching program for the top tiers of our leadership team. Coaching for an individual leader can be great, but it can also be disconnected from the organization’s goals and what it needs from that leader. The Sparks Group links the individual benefit of coaching to the organizational strategy, making sure there’s visibility, alignment, and outcomes on every level. Plus, their focus on diversity means they have a deep bench to match with any leader.+-

Again, thank you and the Sparks team for showing us the impact that one facilitator can have on one team member at one agency, with the potential to impact north of 1,500 family members over a three-county region. The Sparks Group’s workshop truly epitomizes the “Power of One!”

We have had a broad and deep relationship with The Sparks Group from executive coaching, to focus groups, leadership offsites, 360 and other assessments, workshops, and so on. They were also a key support in my own ascension to the CEO role. The wide variety of TSG practitioners we have partnered with share deep expertise and years of experience. We continue to reap the benefits of the partnership and look forward to doing so for the long-term.+-
