The founding of bluSPARC™

bluSPARC™ was co-founded by Dr. Kim Villeneuve and Dr. Andrew Rahaman, both of whom earned their doctorates in Leadership Studies, with an emphasis on leading in learning organizations and shaping agile, high-performance cultures.

" Our goal is to help leaders more fully actualize in their roles creating deeper satisfaction, engagement and retention, and for you to build a competitive bench as a direct result of your investment in your leaders. "

Drawing on our deep experience in executive search, coaching for succession, and curriculum design for executive education, we believe in a systems approach to talent development. We start by gaining a deep understanding of your culture's competitive advantage, then assess leader alignment to those cultural characteristics.

Next, we consider the functional competencies across all disciplines and levels to determine the “bar” you want each leader to meet to reflect the top-5% of outside talent in like industries.
