A unique, by-invitation leadership development program, exclusively designed for experienced C-suite leaders and the senior most functional officers within organizations.
Develop. Advance. Thrive.
The bluSPARC-Elite program is built on three differentiating pillars:
The Power of Working in Diverse Cohorts
Executive Assessments & 1:1 Leadership Coaching
Board Readiness & Preparation
Unmatched expertise in transforming leaders.
Informed by decades of experience in evaluating C-suite leaders, executive coaching, and guiding organizations through succession, bluSPARC-Elite offers a comprehensive, personalized executive development experience, with coaches who provide practical insights for navigating leadership complexities.
How it works
Exclusively designed for top-level executives occupying the highest functional positions within their organizations, who are driven to enhance their leadership capabilities, advance their careers, and prepare for future Board experiences.
Cohorts of 9-12 executives representing a wide range of perspectives, lived experience, professional backgrounds, industries, and functional expertise. We prioritize fostering a shared experience among executives who lead similar-sized organizations and navigate comparable complexities in their roles.
Senior Executive Assessments
Each executive undergoes confidential assessments, providing valuable insights into their development areas. These assessments are followed by comprehensive debrief sessions conducted by our team of psychologists and executive coaches.
Participants select a dedicated bluSPARC-Elite coach who provides 1:1 coaching throughout the program. Our coaches offer tailored support to accelerate personal and professional development.
In-Person Program Launch
Your cohort journey commences with an in-person reception and opportunity to meet fellow participants, coaches, and bluSPARC-Elite facilitators, followed by launching the first meeting with the Chair.
Monthly Virtual Format
Crafted to deliver focused and impactful learning experiences. Each forum results in deep discussions, knowledge sharing, and practical insights from a dedicated Chair and augmented by industry experts.
What types of leaders are part of bluSPARC-Elite?
bluSPARC-Elite ensures true peer-to-peer engagement by carefully curating cohorts of accomplished leaders, including C-suite or the senior most functional officers within organizations. We believe in harnessing the collective wisdom of men and women from diverse backgrounds and industries for powerful career advancement.
Is there flexibility with the 12-month commitment?
While we understand the need for flexibility, we believe that a 12-month commitment is essential to fully reap the benefits of the bluSPARC-Elite experience. The program renews annually, with the option to remain in the same core cohort or discover others.
Is participation in bluSPARC-Elite confidential?
Yes, absolutely. We prioritize creating a safe and confidential space for executives to freely share and engage. Confidentiality is maintained throughout every aspect of the experience.
What if I already have an executive coach?
The bluSPARC-Elite coaching component is uniquely tailored to meet your leadership development objectives particularly in the context of your executive assessments. Therefore, committing to a minimum of three months with a bluSPARC coach is essential; however, this doesn’t necessitate discontinuing other coaching relationships.
How does the admittance process work since it is by invitation?
Executives can either directly reach out to our admissions team, or be nominated by a Board director, CEO, or CHRO of their company. Applicants are evaluated based on function, level, and organization size. After preliminary acceptance, an interview is conducted to assess compatibility and confirm time commitments.
Fall 2023 and Winter 2024 nominations and applications are currently being reviewed.
