PRISM

The Prism award is an indication of the work that you, as coaches, are leading in workplaces.  This is a celebration of your expertise, knowledge and contribution that you have made as much as it is about the changes the organization has experienced.  

Are you working with, or for an organization that has made strides in creating a coaching culture and is demonstrating excellence in coaching?


Message from Jackie McConaghy, President

It is with great enthusiasm that I announce the 2019 Prism Award Program for ICF Saskatchewan and it comes with some exciting improvements to our award categories. 

The Prism Committee is managing the nomination and award processes, is being led by
Lori Lipinski and Barbra Bell and includes Richard Clatney and Lorna Selinger as committee members.  This group is working hand in hand with our Chapter’s Program Committee to host the event on Thursday May 2, 2019 in Regina, during International Coaching Week. 

The Board of ICF Sask recently adopted adjustments to our Prism Awards process and evaluative criteria to more closely align with that of ICF Global and a number of other Charter Chapters.  This includes selection criteria, the award categories, and comprehensive evaluation criteria supported by a
scoring rubric.  In doing so our Chapter will offer greater consistency amongst this overall program and allow a smooth transition for those coaches wishing to pursue nomination of their organization(s) to Award Nominations at the Global level.

Here are the updated 2019 Prism Eligibility and Selection Criteria, the 2019 Prism Eligibility Categories and the 2019 Prism Nomination Form. 

Nominations are open from
Monday November 26, 2018 and close at 5pm CST, Friday January 25, 2019

Now is the time to think about organizations you wish to nominate and begin the process of completing and submitting the documentation. There is no need to wait until the deadline date is on the horizon. 


Is coaching making a difference in your organization?

In 2005, ICF Global adopted the PRISM Award.  The award epitomizes what professional coaching can accomplish in organizations at all levels. 

PRISM Award recipients exemplify how coaching can develop an organization's human capital by maximizing individuals' potential and leading to high Return on Investment (ROI) and Expectations (ROE) from coaching interactions.

Lori Lipinski nominated the Co-op Refinery Complex (CRC) which won the 2017 Prism award. 

Kathy McCrum, former Director, Human Resources at the Refinery, says that the CRC’s coaching program was implemented to enhance leadership effectiveness.
