Bright Sparks can become a Galaxy of Stars

Who has surprised you on the upside with their leadership skills?

The first 1000 Days of this decade has tested leadership on all levels of our organisations.  

As we move beyond the first 1000 days of this decade a recurring flashpoint in conversation has been the depth of leadership with the ‘spark’ to navigate through the many twists and turns YET to unfold this decade.

Everyone knows we are in a period of volatility and ambiguity and the pressure is not going away for leadership.

The leadership capacity of your organisation is now the KEY lead indicator.


“Your ultimate hedge against uncertainty is your people, people who can adapt to whatever the world throws at you.”

  • Edward T. O’Donnell

As a Board Director or Executive when you look at your “To Do” list have you prioritised this high return focus?

A recent interview with Jim Collins, Good to Great author, called out this specific action.

“Sit down and make a list of all the people in your company who surprised you on the upside with their leadership through Covid. Because Covid exposed the leadership capabilities of people. I’ve had conversations with numerous CEOs who realized that Covid brought some people to the fore whose Level 5 leadership wasn’t necessarily so visible before under the stress of Covid. Take that as a gift, and say, “It’s hard to find enough of the right Level 5 leaders, but Covid just gave me a bunch of Level 5 leaders that I hadn’t seen before.”

  • Jim Collins

*Level 5 leaders refers to the leader described in Good to Great as Executives with the unique capability to develop a company’s greatness through “a paradoxical combination of personal humility plus professional will.”

It is time to bring focus to the best return on investment in our industry transformations which is supporting what I refer to as Bright Sparks to become a Galaxy of Stars.


What would it mean for your organisation if your Bright Sparks became a Galaxy of Stars leading through the next 1000 Days?

What would it mean for your organisation if you don’t? 

Who has surprised you on the upside with their leadership? There’s the gift! Are you returning the gift to them?

Everyone knows we are in a period of volatility and ambiguity. I am keen to bring focus to the best return on investment in our industry transformations which is supporting Bright Sparks to become a Galaxy of Stars.

Over the last Quarter of 2022 I am making space and tools available for Bright Sparks. You can take advantage of this and dramatically shift the energy. We are sharing methods usually exclusive to Executive Mentoring to shift the energy to Leading Disruption with GraceTM , engaging your Bright Sparks spirit, heart, head, and hands. For a small fraction of what some of us spend on coffee over a year, we can support and challenge a Bright Spark into their next chapter. To learn more of this $99 workshop refer the brochure on BernieKelly.com. If you are keen to join me and do something impactful this Quarter for the potential of your organisation please contact me. This is exciting energy for the leaders that are leveraging this opportunity!
