LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT

Strong teams, organizations, and communities start with strong individuals.

Human-Centered YOUnity® places individuals (and individuality) at the heart of everything. We are using this approach to recognize the power of individuality and belonging to help make the world a better place.

Human-Centered YOUnity®

The Human-Centered YOUnity® training series can help you gain insights about yourself, about the people you’re working with, and finally, about your entire team. This understanding can translate into happier, healthier collaboration, and ultimately, effective change for the better.

Human-Centered YOUnity® is a proprietary three-part framework created by Spark! Strategic Solutions.

ME

My unique perception

For starters, YOUnity starts with you. It starts with my unique perception.

It helps you explore your personal story and understand how it shapes your beliefs, values, and goals. By gaining insights into yourself, you can develop a stronger sense of who you are and what you want to achieve in life.

Above all else, Origins is about discovering your unique identity and using it as a foundation for personal growth and development. Once you understand yourself and your personal story, you can remind yourself that you are not alone in your community.

EM

Their unique perspective

The next step is to reach an understanding, an appreciation, a curiosity, for their unique perspective—the depth of others’ personal stories. Our communities are made up of hundreds, thousands, and even millions of people living out their own stories daily.

By learning more about others, you can build empathy, compassion, and a deeper understanding of the community you live in.

Above all else, Reflections encourages you to listen actively, ask questions, and engage in meaningful conversations with others.

WE

Our shared human experience
Everyone has a role to play in shaping and building the future. Once you understand yourself and are working to understand others, you can combine your efforts and skills to achieve something bigger than yourself. 

Above all else, Teams is about connecting over our shared human experiences and recognizing collaboration and collective action toward a shared vision.
