We at CFAR bring a commitment to unleashing potential and maximizing impact for our clients, through our management consulting and executive coaching services that deliver both desired outcomes and improved relationships. We have, for close to four decades, provided guidance and expertise to tackle the thorniest issues—ones often rooted in a misalignment between important organizational goals and individual beliefs about what it will take to achieve them. We come to our work as curious problem-solvers. Our heritage as the Wharton School’s only multi-disciplinary, applied research center lives on in our continued dedication to advising leaders on complex organizational issues where both people and performance matter.

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

We take a multidisciplinary, systemic approach to consulting and coaching engagements, drawing on a seasoned team of experienced consultants from a variety of disciplines and with a broad range of training, credentials, and capabilities. The contribution of multiple perspectives is paramount in advancing the kinds of customized work for which we are known. Our experience shows us that drawing on multiple perspectives—and creating excitement and a sense of ownership—creates the conditions for sustainable, lasting success.

Our 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, our work aligns strategy, strengthens culture, builds teams, and improves outcomes.

Our commitment to you is to ensure:

Your world is understood

Your choices are clarified

Your organization is activated

Your purpose is realized
