Meaningful Engagement.

Lasting Results.

Sustained Impact.




0ur clients lead organizations where mission and purpose are central and engagement and alignment matter—in healthcare, family enterprises, owner-led businesses, higher education, foundations, associations, and other corporate and non-profit entities. Together, we partner to first discover (sometimes hidden) obstacles to success and then break through them using research-based ideas, tools, and approaches. Ultimately, this work aligns strategy, strengthens culture, builds teams, and improves outcomes.

CFAR’s mission is to help leaders activate organizations to achieve their highest aspirations—productively, meaningfully, profitably, and with impact. paper plane icon
