CFAR’s Coaching Practice Yesterday and Today
Executive coaching has always been part of CFAR’s consulting practice. As we saw an increasing need for coaching in the organizational work we supported, we began to partner closely with the global network of executive coaches known as Richard Levin & Associates (RLA), using the expertise of RLA to complement our own.
In 2019, RLA formally joined CFAR after many years of fruitful cross-organizational collaboration. Richard Levin began his professional career as a psychologist. At the suggestion and encouragement of his clients, he transitioned to executive coaching, helping to start and shape a new profession. He pioneered work and family policy development and continued to engage as a thought leader while expanding a network of expert coaches, foreseeing the growing need to support leaders’ development.
Today, that network stands at nearly 50 CFAR coaches—the best and most seasoned practitioners to meet a wide range of business, leadership, and communication needs.
The goal of aligning the two companies, now successfully achieved, is to integrate executive coaching and strategic leadership consultation. By weaving together our practices, our objective is to help leaders achieve their highest aspirations by unlocking the potential in themselves, their people, and their organizations—engaging them to explore new ways of thinking about their organizations and developing new skills to sustain lasting performance.
