Meet Ignite's Founder

Ignite was founded by Wendy Glass. Wendy has over 17 years of human resources experience, supporting organizations in their quest for excellence by aligning their people agenda with operational goals. Prior to founding Ignite, she spent 10 years at the executive HR leadership level with a Fortune 500 health system.

She is an energetic and thought challenging coach who believes great leaders proactively seek to continually improve; and great organizations invest in their people to cultivate a culture of engagement and trust.

Wendy is a Certified Executive Coach who earned her Bachelor's degree in Leadership & Organizational Development from Bluefield College and her Master's degree in Management & Leadership from Liberty University. She proudly holds certifications as a Society for Human Resources-Senior Consulting Professional (SHRM-SCP), Senior Professional in Human Resources (SPHR) from the HR Certification Institute, and is TTI Success Insights DISC, 12 Driving Forces and EQ certified.

Our Belief About Leadership

We believe success comes from doing the right thing regardless of who is watching, having an unapologetic commitment to a culture of engagement and development, and a willingness to learn from all levels of the organization.

Wendy said it best when she said "The success of any organization is dependent on top executive's belief that their people are the foundation, the heartbeat, of their business. You have to be willing to acknowledge your blind spots and hardwire proven best practices to your people agenda. It does not matter how much attention or money you throw at a problem, if you aren't taking care of your people, you will never fully arrive at your destination."

With these beliefs and a commitment to transparency and effective leadership, organizations will successfully navigate any challenge they may encounter.
