We at CFAR hope that you and your loved ones are staying safe and healthy amidst the COVID-19 crisis. Like you, we are watching the events unfold by the hour, attempting to balance an attunement to this moment with our commitment to our work with both clients and colleagues. We are so appreciative of the many messages we’ve received from those both close and far that convey how deeply we are all in this together.
The safety and wellbeing of our CFAR team and our wider communities are of the utmost importance for us. We have transitioned to working remotely, already experienced and still learning how to authentically stay connected by video and phone. We are doing all we can to provide continued support to our clients. I am amazed at how quickly and creatively our team has jumped in with both feet to advance the important work entrusted to us.
As you already know, we bring an explicit learning orientation to our experience and hope to be better for it on the other side. Never before has our commitment to “hard and soft” been so critical as we work the technology, the task and the dynamics simultaneously! We know that many of our organizations will be changed by these events, and are eager to help in any way that we can – now and in the weeks and months to come.
Do not hesitate to reach out if we can be of help in any way, even just as a connection to the wider world and as good listeners. We believe in the power of the collective, and know that our collective and successful futures will take all of us.
Be safe and well, and we look forward to being in touch.
Debbie Bing, on behalf of your CFAR team
