You are about to discover your Sparketype™, the essential nature of work that fills you with meaning and lets you feel fully-expressed, alive with purpose and absorbed in flow ("sparked"). Your Sparketype serves as one of the single biggest clues in your quest to figure out what to do with what the poet, Mary Oliver, called your "one wild and precious life."
BUT, THIS IS CRITICALLY IMPORTANT -
As you move through the questions, take your time and answer as accurately and honestly as possible. Do not answer in a way that reflects how you "wished" you felt or thought you "should" feel. If you do this, you will likely be assigned a Sparketype that is not accurate, and it will not be helpful in your quest to figure out what you're here to do.
Turns out, you’re not alone. The further into life we get, the more we start asking the big questions. Top among them is some variation of, “what should I do with my life, and why am I not doing it?”
When we ask that, most often we’re talking about our work. Usually, it’s because we have no clue what truly matters to us, or whatever we’re currently doing - whether it’s the thing we’re getting paid for, or not - is leaving us empty, stressed, overwhelmed, exhausted, anxious, and without a sense of purpose, meaning and joy. Like we have so much more potential to give, but can’t figure out how to step into it.
You’d think this might get better with time. But, truth is, unless you do something to make it better, nothing ever changes. Purposeless, burned-out, and underwhelmed with what you’re doing is no way to work or live. You can only bang your head against the work wall for so long before you start to ask if there’s a better way to build a living, and a life. To make meaning, and feel lit up along the way.
And, this recent season of profound disruption is leading millions to realize, the way we worked in “Before Times,” and the way we’ve been feeling now just isn’t the way we want the rest of our working lives to feel. We need a new compass, to help us figure a better way to work and live.
We’ve got you covered...
How do you discover your Sparketype?
A rare few stumble upon it early in life, most often by chance (even then, most never truly own it). A handful of others discover it through committed experimentation, often taking decades and still revealing only the most superficial expressions of it, rather than the core drivers.
What about the rest of us? Truth is, most people never figure it out. They just surrender their working lives to the meaningless, unengaged, purpose-free grind. And, right now, in this moment in time, that’s just not an acceptable answer any more.
For years, we wondered, “What if there was a way to ‘just know?’” Not someday, but today.
And, what we’ve discovered is, for most of us, there is…
We’ve been working on the solution, in various ways, for more than two decades, drawing from the fields of positive psychology, behavioral economics, social science, demography, philosophy, excellence and expertise, and ancient wisdom traditions, along with thousands of hours of our own research, instructional design, experimentation, and optimization.
We integrated all of this learning into a deceptively simple, ever-improving assessment that reveals your unique Sparketype: the essential nature of the work you’re here to do. In about 10-minutes.
And, because we are driven, first and foremost, to spread ideas and tools that change lives...
