By Events

Each year ICF Saskatchewan holds a gala event – the 2019 Prism Awards were held on May 2nd in Regina.

Applauding the organizers – Barbara Bell and Lori Lipinski who did an exceptional job of leading the team of committee volunteers from start to finish, including the work of the Nominating Committee, volunteers Richard Clatney and Lorna Selinger.

The event was held at the Wascana Country Club, Lori Lipinski was the Master of Ceremonies and guest speakers included Mickey Gustafson, Member Experience Ambassador (North America), ICF Global who shared the changes happening at ICF Global.  She was followed by Phyllis O’Conner, Executive Director, Canadian Mental Health Association Regina who shared the benefits of coaching at CMHA.





The nomination for the 2019 PRISM Award was submitted by Shana Ring, a member of ICF Saskatchewan. Our association is well-known to Creative Options Regina (COR), Shana has done work with their team.

Rory McCorriston, Director of People and Culture for COR, accepted the award and provided the audience with a powerful presentation on COR’s journey to “Creating a Coaching Culture”.

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.

Ethical + Moral Maturity in the Coaching Profession

October 8, 2019 at 10:00am PST/9:00am CST/8 am CDT
What Happens When There is a Complaint Filed?
You get a notification from an International Coach Federation staff that someone has filed a complaint against you. The Independent Review Board (IRB) has determined that the case has legitimacy and you are asked to respond to the allegations. What are the steps involved in the Ethical Conduct Review (ECR)?  You will learn how the ECR process is more an educational process intended to improve your coaching business and your relationships with your clients, and less a punitive system of Do’s and Don’ts. This presentation will be fun – we promise!

November 26, 2019 at 10:00am PST/8:00am CDT
Exploring Ethics in Coaching: Case Studies
In this webinar, we will examine two case studies and apply the ICF Code of Conduct against them. Participants will be asked to explore what the ethical issues are, different ways that the issues might be approached, and what needs to be considered in the context of the case. We will draw from a variety of relevant work and also invite the attendees to bring their own ethical dilemmas to the conversation.
For confidentiality purposes, this webinar will not be recorded and the virtual room will be locked 5 minutes after the start.

There are no upcoming Events at this time.

Call for Coaches

2019 Community Support Program Interested in being a volunteer Coach in the 2019 Community Support Program? We are looking for volunteers to provide pro-bono coaching to leaders with a partner…

I became an ICF Sk member because after taking the training, I really needed a community. I was all by myself in rural Saskatchewan, very disconnected from other coaches. Being a member has helped me stay connected and the events give me an opportunity to meet other coaches from throughout the province. I highly recommend becoming a ICF SK member – especially if you are self-employed.

Tracy Schira-Parker, CPA, CMA, ACC

I joined ICF Sask when I was new to the business of coaching. As a result, I have built lifelong relationships with colleagues interested and curious to learn and grow professionally and personally. Having worked solo for most of my career, these connections have been invaluable and inspiring. This, in addition to training and events, advertising benefits and opportunities to volunteer are why I continue my membership with ICF Sask.
