Gain an unwavering partner – encouraging you to become more focused and productive in order to reach your goals.

What would happen if you could walk into your workplace, sit down to a clean desk, know what your priorities are and be able to focus on them because you’ve minimized distractions?

Whether you are managing email, leading meetings, delegating tasks, following up on teammates, or creating project plans, how you spend your time processing & tracking information determines the level of control you wield over your work. Together, we can help you achieve the clear workspace, streamlined processes, and greater flow in order to gain that control.

How we work

Our proven process results in sustained change. After your free discovery session, you’ll complete an online assessment to identify the challenges you want to tackle. Then we’ll schedule your first appointment.

Working with you virtually, we’ll get to know you and understand your situation, uncover negative patterns, deconstruct the sources of your stress, rebuild your systems, and practice new behaviors. Together we will create a schedule that matches your style, and we’ll end when it feels right.

This work requires rigorous decision making — you may feel exhausted by the end of the first session. That fatigue will give way to relief in subsequent sessions as you begin to practice implementing new ideas and behaviors.

Spark developed a system for me that I’ve been following for more than a year now, because it works. It works because it’s adapted to me and my style.

Leo Burnett Executive

Spark was able to understand my productivity challenges and personality to provide me a personalized approach to organizing my days and my to-do list. Spark never judges your style, and challenges you when thinking about your approach to managing your workload and time. In three weeks, I became much more productive and even my leadership noticed I was able to push lots out and manage my bandwidth more effectively! This made a huge difference in how I value my time. An absolute pleasure to work with and I will recommend to anyone who I know may be challenged with their workload. Most certainly a five-star experience!

They have a unique talent for finding just the right spark that leads to more productivity. I had experimented with all kinds of apps and systems to get more productive, but it wasn’t until I engaged Spark Productivity that I was able to create a system that worked for me and energized me enough to actually use it. They have impressive powers of listening, caring and customization.

Sedway Associates Consultant

When I started working with Spark Productivity, my company had just reorganized, and there was a ton of stuff going on. We were moving offices, merging different cultures, and onboarding about 800 new employees…this was a very stressful time for me. I was getting 200-plus email a day, not including junk. Not only did Spark Productivity help me organize my electronic and physical files, they worked with me to create a new system that is so tailored to my preferences that I’m still using it a year later. And they did the same for my supervisor and co-workers, even though their styles are completely different. Our approaches mesh with each other and create an exponentially more productive culture. What was really surprising to me was how easy the system is to maintain. It’s calming. It’s simple. I’m able to spend more time on my true priorities, and less time in the weeds. I’m getting a lot more enjoyment and satisfaction out of my work.

Navistar Executive

When I started working with Spark Productivity, I was overwhelmed. I had recently started a new job, and I had three different workspaces in various locations. Spark Productivity not only helped me set up each of those spaces, they helped me organize my time, so that it was clear what I should be working on and where. Rather than dictating an approach, they helped me to figure out what had worked for me in the past, and how I could apply that thinking to the issues at hand. The more I have worked with Spark Productivity, the more I’ve been able to do that – transfer techniques from one challenge to another. Spark Productivity helped me think more strategically about how to organize my life.
