Inclusive, Courageous Leadership requires intentional reflection and action.

  • Do you want to get better at navigating conflicts and challenging dynamics within your organization/team?
  • Are you feeling overwhelmed by all that needs to get done and lacking clarity because there is so much on your plate?


  • Do you have a desire to communicate with more consciousness of your blind spots and in alignment with your values?
  • Do you want to be a better facilitator for your community, being a catalyst for more inclusive experiences and conversations?
  • Are you at the beginning, middle, or end of a big change / transition and need tools to navigate and adapt with intentionality?

If you resonate with any of these 5 Power C’s…

S.P.A.R.K. Leadership can support you to lead with intentionality, integrity, and cultural consciousness.

Ignite Inclusion with the SPARK Intentional Leadership Program:

A neurobiological approach to adaptive leadership.

SPARK Leadership involves:

  • Acknowledging and accepting unproductive mindsets and old patterns of behavior, raising awareness of blind-spots and biases that impact one’s leadership
  • Interrupting unproductive patterns by setting intentions and taking small steps to shift habits and feelings
  • Embracing the unique strengths and assets that you have, which in turn helps you lead authentically with intentionality, conviction, and confidence.
  • Increasing comfort navigating the transitions, tensions, and complexities of their organization.

Hi, I’m Rachel Rosen.

I’ve spent several years of learning, coaching, and facilitating experiences on leadership development, organizational development, and racial equity.


I believe that all leaders have the capacity to catalyze and sustain positive change. And, leading during these intense times requires a particular type of mindset, approach, and support.

In this leadership program, we’ll utilize the S.P.A.R.K. approach and framework, which melds Adaptive Leadership practices and neuroscience while applying an inclusion/racial equity lens.
Everything I offer comes from years of experience AND lessons-learned (the hard way). Basically I created the program I wish I had had 10 years ago. A program that allows you to learn at your own pace, a program that makes complex topics approachable, and a program that propels my goals forward with intentional support. 
The leaders in my programs care deeply about being in alignment with their values, including and honoring ALL voices, and communicating with intentionality and awareness of blindspots.


If that sounds like you, you may be a great fit to apply for our 10 week online coaching program!

Adaptive leadership involves collaboration and strong team dynamics.

Now, imagine for a minute…

  • Your team is significantly more productive because relational trust is strong
  • Your leadership philosophy (with your vision, values, and mission) is crystal clear
  • Your team sees you as a self-aware, humble, confident, caring, leader with conviction
  • You have higher emotional and social intelligence and have coping skills for communication-break-downs
  • You’re able to diagnose where your team is at in their development and respond accordingly
  • You are aware of your blind-spots so you strengthen relationships and bonds with your diverse team
  • Your values are felt in the way you communicate authentically
  • You have big goals and priorities outlined and you are also adaptive and ready to make adjustments
  • You improve your quality of life because you’re living in deep alignment with your values
  • Your team feels great satisfaction and that gives you peace of mind
  • You’re a proactive, not reactive leader
How does that sound to YOU?
I developed and designed our leadership programs and workshops to support you to lead with more self-awareness, emotional and social intelligence, courage, humility, and conviction SO THAT you can influence your team in positive, impactful ways.

I’m offering this course at a significantly lower investment, so it is accessible to all leaders.

The individuals in the program is what makes the experience extraordinary… so we’re only accepting influencers who are serious about taking their leadership and team to the next level and who are committed to their learning, growth, and development.

Here’s what leaders from our first cohort have shared about their experience:

“The program really put perspective on leadership and diversity. The biggest shift for me was the S.P.A.R.K. acronym – it helps me keep on target with my leadership focus. I’ve used it in the past, but not nearly as forefront as it was during the program.”

“In the program, my 2017 priorities & intentions shifted. I had to step up to be a leader and TAKE ACTION.”

“The best part was the influence and connecting the people who I had a chance to connect with on and off the planned calls.”

“The program confirmed the path of leadership I want to take.”

“So much intentionality was used in every part of the program, and I became a better leader because of it.”


What’s the investment for this power-packed program?

This experience is one-of-a-kind, with executive coaching, customized content, intentional facilitation and guidance, and a supportive learning community.

What is S.P.A.R.K?

SPARK For Humanity started in 2016 as an interactive community-building card game, and the acronym exists as the shared agreements  / encouraged behaviors for the game. Rachel created the card game, with his unique structure, because she saw a huge need for diverse communities to engage in empathy-building experiences, raising-awareness of how one’s’ identity impacts their experience in the world.

Over time, given the sociopolitical landscape, S.P.A.R.K. grew into much more. Today we carry on the meaning of the acronym in our Leadership programs to support leaders to align their vision, core values, systems, and actions with intentionality. Our programs aim to strengthen leaders’ emotional intelligence, social intelligence, AND cultural consciousness–in service of sustaining positive, productive, and inclusive organizational cultures.
