I am Howard Garval, MSW and currently President & CEO of Child & Family Service (CFS) in Ewa Beach, Hawaii.
I am so excited to introduce myself to other leaders in the nonprofit sector or to reconnect in a different way with leaders I already know. After September 30th of this year, I will be moving on from my CEO position after 11 wonderful and successful years at CFS as I move into my encore career.
Leaders 4 Futures is the name of my new business of providing executive coaching and consultation to the next generation of nonprofit leaders who are interested in preparing for and then pursuing senior or executive leadership positions. This is my passion and after 30+ years of leadership in three great nonprofits, I want to give back by helping our future leaders, thus the name of my new business.
I believe strongly in executive coaching and the importance of finding a good match between the coachee and the coach. I have both benefitted from coaching and have had the pleasure of coaching other leaders, especially in the last three years.
I look forward to working with anyone where there is this good match and fit.
Thank you for the important work all of you do in the nonprofit sector!
