In June 2005, I walked out of a midtown Manhattan high-rise and into the rest of my life. After a successful twenty-five year career transforming dynamic, high potential financial service businesses I was ready to contribute in new ways. I lifted my head up, took a fresh look at the world, and asked myself “ how I can make a positive difference?”
From these insights, my mission emerged — a deeply-held commitment to help develop the next generation of socially responsible leaders; to support change-making organizations committed to building leadership capacity relevant for today’s world. I reframed my “leader-manager-operator” business experience, added certified coaching expertise to my portfolio and founded Cindy Levine Group.
Today, Cindy Levine Group provides leadership coaching and advisory services to change-making organizations in the corporate (AIG, Ann Inc, Assurant, BuzzFeed, Burberry USA, ESPN, Standard and Poor’s, New York Stock Exchange, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Royal Bank of Scotland, TD Bank, Univision, Yahoo!), non-profit (Consumer Reports, Fordham Business School, Museum of Arts and Design, Visiting Nurse Services of New York) and social impact (Acumen Fund, Echoing Green, Planned Parenthood Federation, World Bank, World Economic Forum) sectors.
