THE SPARKED PODCAST™
We’re all in a moment. And, we’re asking the big questions. Especially about work. Should I join The Great Resignation? Should I stay and just keep on, keeping on. Or, reimagine, reinvent, maybe even start my own thing? Can I really expect more than just a paycheck and stability from work? How do I navigate the overwhelm, burnout, and work-life-bleed that’s turned work-from-home into never-stop-working? What about purpose, joy, excitement, time to breathe, and live? What about that nagging tension between money and meaning, the desire to feel secure and the quest to do something that makes you come alive - that sparks you?
These are the questions we’ll be diving into on the SPARKED podcast. Every week, we invite a listener to share what’s going on in their work & life, then pose a specific question. Then, our host, award-winning author, advisor, and founder, Jonathan Fields, and a rotating lineup of wise mentors from the SPARKED Braintrust will share insights, ideas, strategies, resources and tips to help us all better align what we do with who we are, so we can find and do more of what makes us come alive.
- How do I figure out what kind of work makes me come alive?
- Should I stay in my job, keep my head down, and hope it gets better?
- How can I reimagine what I’m doing to add purpose, meaning, and joy?
- Should I look for a new role or position within my organization or industry?
- Should I try something entirely new and different than what I’ve been doing?
- Should I reinvent, re-skill, or start my own practice, company, or endeavor?
- Or any other question that basically asks “how do I do work differently?
