As my business name suggests, I am inspired by Rule 6 "Light Many Fires" of Organization Development movement pioneer, Herb Shepard's eight “Rules of Thumb for Change Agents.”


Shepard’s Rules informed his ability to recognize and nurture the potential in those he mentored.  Throughout my experience coaching many individuals and teams, Rule 6 has held true. I’ve learned that the method of achieving holistic change in an organization is to start small changes in a number of places and then with a patient and focused approach nurture a larger “change fire.” 


To paraphrase Herb, "large monolithic change programs tend to prevent subsystems from feeling ownership and consequent commitment to the program.” I’m a “systems thinker,” a coach able to observe how small changes can fit together  for larger transformation - for individuals, teams and entire organizations.  Clients uncover multiple options for implementing change that has lasting positive impact. In this way, my coaching “lights many fires” of small changes within an organization’s team and leads to the effective achievement and sustainability of larger organizational objectives.
