LISTENER: Kaycee - Sparketype: Sage/Maker - Performer QUESTION: Listener Kaycee asks what do you do when the thing that seems to come hardest for you, is also the thing you feel you need to do in order to succeed at your job? She feels like she needs to center her ‘inner performer’ to reach larger audiences outside of her community, in order to further build credibility and trustworthiness beyond her personal network. But, that’s also her Anti Sparketype - or heaviest lift - when it comes to work. And, by the way, Kaycee’s not alone, as the Performer is, by far, the most common Anti Sparketypes in our research of more than 700,000 people now.

Jonathan & Jenny talk about: How you don't have to have your pivot planned out Using experiments to collect data Following the full body yes What is a project based purpose? How do we look at uncertainty differently? Are you a builder, maintainer or an optimizer?   We’re super-excited to be introducing some fresh new formats to the mix here on the SPARKED podcast. Our new Hot Takes segments, which we just launched a few weeks back, tackle hot topics in conversation with expert guides from the SPARKED Braintrust. And, today, we’re sharing the second Sparked Hot Take, this time with Jenny Blake.  We talk about something that Jenny and I often muse on off-mic; uncertainty, reinventing work & life and putting yourself in the path of pivot, as Jenny says. We’re taking a fresh approach to ‘pivots’, especially in this time of across the board uncertainty. We discuss ways of courageously embracing change and using experiments to collect data about what you might be called to do next. How do you follow the full body yes? And what is ‘project based purpose’? We question why some of us prefer building things over maintaining them and how to embrace your preferences. And, deepening into this conversation on pivoting and uncertainty is Sparked Braintrust advisor, Jenny Blake. Jenny is a podcaster, career and business strategist, and an award-winning author of three books: Life After College, the groundbreaking Pivot for navigating what’s next, and her recently published Free Time for optimizing what’s now.  Enjoy this Sparked Hot Take on change and experimentation in a time when most of us have been navigating both.

Jonathan & Azuraye chat about: The call to come home to the family business Recovering from a natural disaster that almost took everything Using the Sparketypes as a hiring tool Leading with folks’ Sparketypes as a way to remove organizational friction And why we need trust & safety in workplaces We’re super-excited to be introducing some fresh new formats to the mix here on the SPARKED podcast and today, we’re sharing the second installment in a fun new episode format we’re calling SPARKED Stories, where we spotlight the experience of one person and explore how they’ve built a living and life that honors, celebrates, and centers the parts of themselves that truly make them and their work come alive. That sparks what they do, and who they are. And today, I want to introduce you to Azuraye Wycoff. She grew up in Boulder, Colorado, on a family farm - now Yellow Barn Farm - that’d been used for everything from horses to food, but then headed East to go to college and thought she was never coming back. She founded a moving company in Boston, but something inside her called her back to Boulder in the fall of 2020. And shortly after she arrived, she was greeted with a profoundly transformational experience in the form of a wildfire that almost destroyed the family farm. At the last minute, shifting winds spared it, leaving her with a mission. To reimagine the land as a regenerative, sustainable, biodynamic ecosystem, not just a farm, but a community where they're bringing together different farmers and local stakeholders to create something truly extraordinary together. And, the Sparketypes, as we’ll discover, played a very cool role in all of this.  Learn more about Azuraye & the Yellow Barn Farm: Website: www.yellowbarn.farm Insta: @yellowbarn.farm And more on Sparketypes at: Discover You Sparketype | The Book | The Workshop | The Website Presented by LinkedIn.
“We need people to lean on when things don't go as planned because we're gonna spiral down to the bottom. But then we're going to recover, when we have the processing and sharing in the disappointment, the sadness, the frustration. Naming that when it does happen and it doesn't work out and allowing that part of you to be seen from a safe person is really helpful for you to then get back and try something else again.” Every week on the SPARKED podcast, we invite a listener to share what’s going on in their work & life, then pose a specific question to Jonathan Fields and a rotating lineup of wise and kind mentors - the SPARKED Braintrust.  In today’s episode we’re in conversation with: SPARKED BRAINTRUST ADVISOR: Jadah Sellner | Website Jadah is a multi-time founder and CEO of Jadah Sellner Media, the co-creator of the Simple Green Smoothies social and business phenom, sought-after advisor to entrepreneurs, and bestselling author. LISTENER: Brandi - Sparketype: Primary: Nurturer, Shadow: Advocate, Anti: Performer QUESTION: Listener Brandi, sets up a really relatable scenario where as a visionary in her industry she feels frustrated by the slow moving pace of systemic progress. She wants to find a home for her Sparketype drives to Nurturer and Advocate, but feels unfulfilled and bogged down in the day-to-day tasks of her job and volunteer roles. She poses the question, how do you find a way to spotlight a yearning for helping others in a way that feels more impactful and step away from the minutiae of day to day tasks in a culture and system that doesn’t easily support a different approach? YOUR HOST: Jonathan Fields Jonathan is a dad, husband, award-winning author, multi-time founder, executive producer and host of the Good Life Project podcast, and co-host of SPARKED, too!

We’re super excited to be introducing some fresh new formats to the mix here on the SPARKED podcast. Our new Hot Takes segments, which we just launched last week, tackle hot topics in conversation with expert guides from the SPARKED Braintrust. And, today, we’re sharing a fun new episode format we’re calling SPARKED Stories, where we spotlight the experience of one person and explore how they’ve built a living and life that honors, celebrates, and centers the parts of themselves that truly make them and their work come alive. That sparks what they do, and who they are. And today, we’re going to start with a spotlight on the story of someone our listeners have come to know and appreciate, but you likely didn’t know about the stories and experiences that got him where he is. I’m talking about SPARKED Braintrust member, Charlie Gilkey. Now you may know Charlie's work. He runs a company called Productive Flourishing, which is all about helping people get things out of their heads and figuring out how to actually take the actions to produce the things that they so deeply want to make real in the world as a maker myself. His work has resonated so profoundly with me, which is why he’s a part of the SPARKED Braintrust. But, Charlie also has a really powerful background. He came out of the military where the decisions that he was making, the systems and processes that he was building, the advising and mentoring and coaching, and leading that he was doing very often had extraordinary stakes. Life and death stakes. If he chose wrong, lives were at risk in a part of the world that was very far from where he grew up. He's since written a fantastic book called Start Finishing, which is all about his methodology.  As we sat down to dive into Charlie’s Sparked Story, I wanted to understand what were his deep impulses for the things that he's done and what have been the through lines. And, of course, along the way, he shares his Sparketype profile and we dive into how that has informed the different types of work he’s said yes and no to, the way that he has stepped into them, and what he's learned along the way about how he makes decisions that better aligned with that.     SPARKED STORY GUEST: Charlie Gilkey | Website Charlie is a strategic advisor and executive coach, founder of the Productive Flourishing consultancy, and author of the multi-award-winning book, Start Finishing. YOUR HOST: Jonathan Fields Jonathan is a dad, husband, award-winning author, multi-time founder, executive producer and host of the Good Life Project podcast, and co-host of SPARKED, too!

“What we're seeing is that organizations are trending towards putting what I'll call programmatic things in place. Whereas employees are craving relational support.” I am so excited to introduce a new episode format that we’ll be mixing in, alongside our listener question episodes, that we call SPARKED Hot Takes. These SPARKED hot take episodes focus in on a big issue in the world of work, something deeply relevant to all of us. We’ll dive into the angles and nuances with an expert member of the SPARKED Braintrust, teasing out the real questions, the nuanced assumptions, the parts no one else talks about, and what we can do to make work and life better. More alive. In today’s first-ever Sparked Hot Take, we’re taking an unusual look at what it’s like to lead in this complicated, often upside-down moment, and how leaders, themselves, are struggling with their own humanity, at the same time they’re being asked to take care of those they lead, and deliver bottom-line results in a world where both feel near impossible.  And, deepening into this conversation on leadership and humanity is Sparked Braintrust advisor, Karen Wright. Karen is the founder of Parachute Executive Coaching, acclaimed executive coach, advisor to senior leaders for more than two-decades, and the author of two great books, The Accidental Alpha Woman and The Complete Executive. Enjoy this Sparked Hot Take on leading and humanity at a time when both are hard to access.

LISTENER:  Hilde - Sparketype: Advisor/Sage, Anti: Maker & Essentialist QUESTION: Listener, Hilde, asks an interesting question that we know a lot of multi-passionate folks ask themselves, do you have to choose one area to focus on or specialize in?

Now back in the corporate space and bolstered by the leadership feedback loop, she’s plotting her next move. Hilde poses the query, if you’re marketing yourself as a coach or mentor, do you need to have a niche or a special area of interest? Or can you embrace the multi-passionate approach.

LISTENER:  Jade - Sparketype: Maker/Maven QUESTION: Listener Jade poses a question that I’m sure a lot of our Makers and creators have also wondered, what can you do to see more ideas through to completion. Jade shares her experience of feeling tied down in the ‘busy-work’ of her daily job while being called to diversify her income and embrace a ‘side hustle’.  So the essence of the question is how do you make the most of the small amount of time you have in the ‘in-between’ moments and how do you follow through more often to generate the outcomes and feelings that you really want to have. And underneath that is the question, do we need to in the first place do any of this or is there magic in the mess of the maker and not centering some of these impulses as the fundamental way we earn our living.

LISTENER: Trisha - Sparketype: Maven/Sage, Anti: Scientist QUESTION: Listener Trisha shares a moment of transition after taking a much needed break from the workforce, which so many of us have done in our lives. Especially after discovering more about yourself, this becomes a hugely relevant question - in this instance, discovering her Sparketype profile, and wanting to find work that aligns more closely with your primary impulse and is less likely to end in burnout.

Or is it a matter of understanding what your primary impulses are and how they are best expressed in different seasons of life, and shifting around them? Quentin puts forward a query we often get at Sparketype HQ - can you do your Sparketype assessment more than once and will it change over the course of your life? But there are some bigger, deeper questions embedded once we dive into what’s really going on here.

In Jen’s case, the quiet, deep work of 1:1 coaching and support is where she is most lit up, but knows that it isn’t scalable in a way that will meet her goals. So Jen asks how do you become more comfortable with a working model that can expand and serve more people but is outside your comfort zone or more specifically, is there a way for her to do work differently?

LISTENER: Bree - Sparketype: Advisor/Sage, Anti: Essentialist QUESTION: Listener Bree shares her story of experience of a role reversal with her partner, moving from full time parenting back into the workforce. And with that asks how do you combine multiple skills and passions? When you have a passion project, like writing books, calling to you, how do you balance that with a leadership role and overseeing big projects at work? Bree poses the query that many of us face, how do you approach tasks that you may be skilled at but no longer find them interesting?

LISTENER: Liana - Sparketype: Nurturer/Maven QUESTION: Listener Liana shares a conundrum that many of us have pondered. Do you stay in the well-paying job and build up your savings or do you go part-time in order to do more of what lights you up and as Liana puts it ‘live your best life sooner.’ The question being, what do you value more money or your time? And is that even a real dichotomy?
