Richard Levi is a certified Integral Coach (PCC and ICF certified), adjunct faculty member of New Ventures West, and a coach and consultant who coaxes the entrepreneurial spirit in each of his clients. He is a facilitator of Hospice grief support groups, visits convalescent, children hospital and senior living facilities with his trained social therapy dog, and is currently finalizing certification as a nonsectarian chaplain with Sonoma law enforcement. He is also currently a board member for Partners in Sustainable Learning.
His own “life lived on purpose” began as a professional dancer in Europe and New York City where he became an internationally celebrated choreographer, before turning to producing theatre for Broadway and national stages. He co-founded a thriving novelty and Halloween manufacturing company that utilized his sense of humor and theatricality perfectly, and served as its CEO in San Diego for 10 years, before selling the company and relocating to Sonoma County, California.
He served as a product designer and marketing consultant to the David Allen Company (bestselling author of “Getting Things Done” and leaders in personal and corporate productivity). As owner of his own coaching practice, Richard brings these well learned organizational skills, his talent for implementing creative ideas and his proven business savvy to each client and business he coaches.
Richard recognizes the invaluable gifts he received from master coaches and educators along his own peripatetic path. His purpose now is to pass those gifts along to ignite the passion in others for doing good, authentic work in the world. A fulfilling life, he has learned, is our most important and gratifying creation.
