"What do you do when your goals and your personality type don't necessarily line up?"
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: Deborah Owens | Website
After a long career in leadership in some of the biggest companies in the world, Deborah founded her own consulting firm, Corporate Alley Cat, where she advises and coaches People of Color in all aspects of career visioning and development. She has this incredible ability to see what’s happening under the surface in any given situation, and ask questions that get to the heart of the matter and reveal possibilities that feel both empowering and expansive.
LISTENER: Ariel - Sparketype: Advisor
QUESTION: Listener Ariel shares a story of solo entrepreneurship that we often hear, where half of the day-to-day work really lights her up but the other half is a heavier lift. As can often happen when you’re trying to wear all the hats. Ariel has a sense that she could expand her team and grow the business but is questioning if that’s in alignment for her. She poses the question, what do you do when your values and your personality type don't necessarily line up? And how do you untangle external influence with your own personal drivers, when making these big decisions.

So what is your Sparketype? Turns out, we all have a unique imprint for work that makes us come alive, this is your Sparketype.
