Sparkplug Self Profile

Here’s an informal way for you to take a look at yourself as a Sparkplug for change in a community or organization. On these sheets are five human tendencies we have found important in individuals who lead change by action and by example—whether as heads of failing schools, citizens leading self-help renewal projects, or in any other organization and challenge. For each, we list three important dimensions. For each, please circle the number that best fits. To avoid trying to make fine distinctions, we suggest that you first decide if you belong at one end or the other. If not, circle the middle number. And remember, you are trying to profile how you just are––not how you would always like to be!
