Discover Your Unique Imprint for Work that Makes You Come Alive




Ever wonder why your work doesn’t make you feel the way you want to feel? The REAL reason?

You’re not alone! This last year has been hard. The pandemic is a big part of it, of course. But underneath that, there’s something else. A decades-long silent epidemic--Stifled Life Syndrome (SLS).

Symptoms include feeling uninspired, overwhelmed, exhausted, unfulfilled, and unexcited by the way you spend most of your waking hours--your work. There’s no real sense of purpose, meaning, or joy. You have so much more to give and express, but you can’t figure out how to access it...or even what, exactly, it is!

You've been wondering, "What sort of work should I be doing? Why don't I feel happy or fulfilled in my career? How can I do something that matters? What am I missing?" After running one of the world's largest studies on work that ignites you, we’ve found a powerful answer.

We all have a certain impulse or imprint for work that fills us with meaning, drops us into that transcendent state of flow, excites and inspires us and fills us with purpose, potential and possibility, like we’re doing the thing we were put here to do. This imprint is your Sparketype®, which is a fun way of saying it’s the archetype for work that “sparks” you.

There are 10 Sparketypes


And, here's the thing...

You cannot come alive--in work or life--until you know what makes you come alive.

WHEN you discover your Sparketype, your work and life all start to make sense. You gain the power to take control, and feel inspired and excited. Work feels like a revelation.
UNTIL you discover and awaken your Sparketype, nothing meaningful changes. You feel stifled. Like what you do doesn’t match who you are, what you’re capable of, or what truly matters to you. And you never quite understand why.
SAFE BET you’ve already tried to change nearly everything else--your job, title, team, company, industry, location, and beyond--and nothing’s really helped. There's a reason for that. They may nudge the needle, but your Sparketype is the far bigger unlock key.

You’re not alone. It’s not your fault. The time is now.

Millions of people are in the same boat. None of us were ever shown how to figure out these deeper drivers or imprints for work. There’s no shame in that. This isn’t on you. It’s just never been the focus of our educational paradigm, and the concepts and tools didn’t exist in the world of career-development before (which is why we built them).

Plus, we all have our own unique circumstances to grapple with and responsibilities to honor. Especially over the last year when, for many, flourishing took a back seat to surviving. Completely understandable.

But, things are changing, the world is coming back online. And, we all have a choice to make. Reimagine and reclaim work as a conduit to coming alive, or fall back into some now hard-to-recognize version of a past work-life that leaves you, yet again, perpetually wanting.

If you’re ready for a revelation, we’ve got something that’ll help...


Discover your Sparketype®, then activate it!

Building on decades of experience, experimentation, and research, we developed a unique tool--the Sparketype Assessment--and made it free to all online. To date, nearly half-a-million individuals and organizations have completed it, generating almost 25-million data-points, and turning the Sparketypes into a global phenomenon. It’s not only a powerful tool, it’s also one of the largest-ever studies on what makes people come alive in work and life.

Along the way, we’ve learned something important. It’s not enough to simply discover your Sparketype, you need to understand it in a detailed, nuanced way, then learn what to do with it.

Which is why we’ve created the ultimate Sparketype guidebook for you.

Go beyond knowing your Sparketype, and start living it.

SPARKED: Discover Your Unique Imprint for Work that Makes You Come Alive reveals an entirely new depth of insight about your unique source-code for work and life, how it shows up in different pursuits, fields, and jobs, and how you tap it to not just come back to life, but also contribute to your livelihood.

Packed with stories, case studies, real-world application and actions steps, you’ll become a master of your own Sparketype, then begin to take the steps needed to reimagine how and why you work and get so much more out of the way you spend the majority of your waking hours, for life.

Equally important, you’ll feel seen, embraced, accepted and championed for who you are on the deepest level, maybe for the first time ever. And you’ll see a path forward to reclaiming your work as a driver of meaning, excitement, flow, purpose and potential.

"Sparked offers an invaluable, thought-compelling framework to help us understand ourselves, so we’re better able to create happier, more productive, and more creative lives. When we discover our “Sparketype,” we learn what sparks our energy at work and in life—and what most often drags us down. Learning that I’m a Maven/Maker helped me gain tremendous insight into myself."
Gretchen Rubin, #1 NYT bestselling author of The Happiness Project
"If you’ve ever wondered why you run into the same obstacles at work no matter your role or responsibilities, SPARKED offers you a precise road map for understanding this important truth: it’s not you. It’s your expectation that you should be able to do things the way others do. When you understand your unique Sparked blueprint, you encounter a world of possibility you had not imagined."
Susan Piver, NYT best selling author of The Four Noble Truths of Love: Buddhist Wisdom for Modern Relationships
"What were you meant to do? Jonathan Fields is here with the answer — and it might surprise you. Read SPARKED to understand yourself more deeply and to plan a future of impact and meaning.”
Daniel H. Pink, #1 New York Times bestselling author of WHEN, DRIVE, and TO SELL IS HUMAN
"In an era in which so many of us feel disempowered and without clear aim in our work, SPARKED returns us to the power and purposefulness of archetypes that remind us of who we are so that we are enlivened no matter where we are, and what we apply ourselves to. The result is a disarmingly personalized manual that cracks the code of coming alive in our work, so we can be the contribution that society needs from us now."
Rev. angel Kyodo Williams, Sensei

Neil Pasricha, New York Times bestselling author of The Book of Awesome and The Happiness Equation
"The framework contained within this book has the revelatory power of one-on-one therapy or coaching, but instead of waiting years for a breakthrough, it comes in minutes. The more I learned about my Sparketype (and just as importantly, my Anti-Sparketype), the more I was able to put into words things I’ve always known deep down to be true, but couldn’t readily give shape to. As a business leader being constantly pulled in a million directions, I finally feel I have clarity on where I should put my energy, and permission to focus on where I’ll have the most impact. I’ll be getting copies for my whole team!"
Emily Heyward, Co-founder of Red Antler
"I've worked with a lot of models before, but no framework has gotten my community more aligned and on fire as quickly as the Sparketype™ model. It transcends jobs and roles to help people figure out the right game for them to be playing, for them. Get the book, learn your Sparketype(TM), and start finishing your best work today."
Charlie Gilkey, author of the award-winning Start Finishing: How to Go from Idea to Done

They want to be excited and inspired, and have a sense of purpose. SPARKED is the ultimate guide for leaders, founders and those to want more out of work and life."
Deb Josephs, Chief People Officer, Latch
"This book has the capacity to shift the way we show up in the world. Jonathan Fields has created a groundbreaking tool that is profoundly important and necessary for each one of us. We often move through the world on auto-pilot hoping to one day find ourselves and better understand the work we're meant to do. In the meantime, life simply passes us by.  Until now.  SPARKED offers the tool and insight into fulfilling your potential and purpose based on who you inherently are. It guides you to recognize what energizes and inspires you but also offers insights into where you struggle most deeply. It is the compass that we all need, served up in a format that is both easily digestible and deeply insightful. It will bring about realizations, a deeper understanding of self and much needed inspiration, too."
Cyndie Spiegel, author of A Year of Positive Thinking, Founder of Dear Grown Ass Women®

This is bigger than a book, it’s even bigger than you. We’re all being called to something now...

We’re entering a once-in-a-lifetime moment...

As you begin to emerge back into your life, there’s a reckoning and an awakening at hand. A reclamation. Of work, and of life. A realization that every breath, every day, every moment is precious, and it’s also fragile.

This has been a season of profound disruption. But, on the back end of that is coming equally potent levels of possibility. They are two sides of the same coin.

The idea that we’d forsake this global awakening and invitation to reimagine our individual and collectives futures, and just revert back to the same perpetual malaise and surrender, that we’d waste the opportunity that has been delivered alongside the disruption, the chance to redefine our work and life and wrap it in meaning and joy and expression like never before, is inconceivable.

We are in a moment. A window to a vastly more meaningful, connected, purpose-fueled, and alive work-life and future has been opened for us. But, it is also closing behind us at an alarming rate. If we don’t act now, it may never again open in our lifetimes.

It’s time for real change. It’s time to come back to life. Both individually, and societally. You need it, we need it, and the world needs us utterly alive and fully at our best.

It’s time to reimagine work as a source of energy, meaning, purpose, expression, and flow. To spark your work and life!

Take the first step. Say yes to your Sparketype. Say yes to SPARKED. Say yes to the stunning bundle of resources and support you’ll get immediate access to when you pre-order the book.

But, more important, say yes to the invitation to step back into a place of power, control, agency, and purpose and joy in the one domain of life that will consume the vast majority of your waking hours for the rest of your life. Work. Reclaim it today.
