Fireglow is a leadership and change consulting company committed to bringing out the best in organisations, teams and individuals through innovative and integrated transformational processes. We regard people as organisational contributors full of extraordinary potential that unfolds within an appreciative environment. We see organisational systems as complex communities rich in possibility and supported by unique strengths.

Fireglow partners with organizations to custom create and facilitate conversations, workshops, skills development and coaching programmes with leaders, teams and in large groups across functions and levels and leave a legacy of engagement practices that continue to fuel effective leadership and continuous organizational renewal.

Fireglow is based in Cape Town, South Africa. Bridget Woods works with a team of associate consultants, facilitators and coaches who are highly experienced in the field of organizational change and leadership development. As seasoned practitioners of Appreciative and Action Inquiry and other transformative methodologies, Fireglow has knowledge and experience with the rigour of research, depth of focus and width of application to meet diverse needs across a range of industries.


Our vision is to develop leaders and organisations capable of sustaining innovation, financial well-being and market leadership by inspiring the best in human beings and their relationship with the world.


Our experience is that energized, rapid and results-oriented change takes place when the change is co-created in affirmative, inclusive and collaborative ways. We believe that:

We believe that:
  • the source for all change is awareness - of self, other and the broader system
  • the way we view the world determines our experience of it
  • inquiry initiates change and the nature of the inquiry shapes the change
  • images of the future determine action today
  • the more appreciative the inquiry, the greater lasting the change
  • engagement of the whole system releases collective capacity
  • with freedom to contribute, people co-create their future

Fireglow is committed to sustainable corporate practice, both in terms of guiding the nature of our work within organisations as well as directing our own efforts. Much of our work extends beyond the corporate community to broader social and environmental change. We regularly offer our services at reduced rates to Non-Governmental and Non-Profit Organisations.
