Spark! is designed as a four-day leadership experience to help ignite CKI members' leadership potential, with an emphasis on emerging and developing leaders. 

There will only be a limited number of students selected to participate and we are currently accepting nominations. Anyone may nominate a CKI member. Ideal participants will be individuals who are interested in developing their leadership skills, show strong potential for future impact in CKI, and are starting to think about what their next steps are to achieve their goals. Ideal participants are also those who have not yet had major leadership roles within CKI (at the district or international levels). Please note, Spark! is not an officer training conference and is not designed to prepare an individual for any specific officer role.

Spark! will take place in Chicago, Illinois, from May 30 - June 2, 2019. Students selected to participate will be responsible for their own travel arrangements and a $200 registration fee (will cover the cost of housing accommodations, meals, and materials). 

Please complete this nomination for each individual you wish to be considered. Nominations must be submitted by January 18, 2019 at Noon EST for consideration. It is our hope to select and notify participants by early March 2019.

Questions can be directed to Chief Programs Officer, Jameson Root.

What Gets You Up in the Morning?

What keeps you up at night? It’s a question we’ve heard posed in nearly every panel and senior leader interview conducted in recent years, and as a result, it has become tiresome and rote. But I believe the effect of this query is more pernicious than simply boring — stay awake long enough to think it through, and you’ll recognize its essentially negative nature.

The Quiet Leadership Institute

Quiet Revolution has heard from CEOs “confessing” their introversion for the first time; from managers wanting to know how to be a better leader to the introverted half of their staff; and from introverts asking how to bring their authentic selves to work inside corporate cultures that are, for the most part, extroverted in orientation.
