My name is Howard Garval. I am a leadership coach and trainer for nonprofit organizations. I help organizations cultivate their future leaders. I also provide coaching to new executive directors/CEOs who have leadership experience but have never been in the lead position in their organizations. I have a passion for building healthy and supportive workplace cultures. I also have experience with executive transition and board development/governance. I believe strongly in the importance of diversity equity and inclusion (DEI).
Introduce yourself – who you are, what you do, and where you are.
I am the founder and principal of Leaders 4 Futures LLC . This is my consulting business for nonprofit leaders and their organizations. For the last 8 years or so I have been mentoring and coaching nonprofit leaders to support their growth and development. After 42 years in the nonprofit sector and almost 30 years in increasingly senior leadership roles, I believe strongly in giving back by preparing the next generation of nonprofit leaders to be successful. Leadership has always been central to who I am, and I can trace back my natural gravitation to leadership back to when I was 10 years old. In my last full-time position as CEO at Child & Family Service in Hawaii, I was recognized upon my retirement by naming our leadership academy after me. This was a dream of mine to develop this academy and I was honored to leave this as my legacy after 11.5 years leading this wonderful organization in “paradise”.
