In Dr. Lance Secretan’s latest book, The Spark, the Flame, and the Torch: Inspire Self. Inspire Others. Inspire the World, he integrates experience and theory to show us how to fulfill our destiny and create inspiring organizations. This book is typical of Lance Secretan – broad, imaginative, sweeping and radical–and breathtakingly inspiring. Lance Secretan has written many books about inspiration and leadership, but this is the first time he has taken his work over 35 years and integrated it into a unified theory of inspired leadership. Here is a masterwork, which offers a comprehensive approach to being an inspiring person and therefore an inspiring leader. Complex ideas have been distilled, in Lance Secretan’s trademark style and use of fascinating stories and metaphors, into simple, easily implementable concepts, processes and exercises that explain how to inspire a team, organization or country-as well as friends and family.
The Spark, the Flame, and the Torch: Inspire Self. Inspire Others. Inspire the World teaches us how to become a more inspired person, how to be a more inspiring leader and how to be the change the world needs for a brighter future. It is a brilliant work that helps leaders overhaul stale concepts such as mission, vision and values statements, personal leadership, values, performance management and coaching practice, and rethink our entire mental model of leadership by focusing on inspiration.
