Hello Fellow Coaches,
As the Prism Chairperson and on behalf of ICF Saskatchewan + Manitoba, I am excited to officially launch the 2021 Prism Awards Program!
I am grateful to my committee for the work they have done to bring us to this day. I would especially like to acknowledge Dawna Atamanchuk, Roland Legge, Lorna Selinger, Shauna Hammer, Nadene Joy and JP Madden for their contributions. Special recognition is also extended to Dave Busse, Founding Partner at Essential Impact, for his support and assistance with hosting the Prism Information Award Webinar on November 17th and for the on-going support he is providing to help us achieve our goal of hosting a very successful Prism Awards Program and Gala event.
From the balcony, here is what the 2021 nomination timelines look like:
November 18, 2020 to 5pm CST, Friday January 29, 2021 – Nomination period
February 1, 2021 – Judging begins
Mid March – Submission of winners to ICF SK/MB Board of Directors
Early April – Notification of winners
May 4, 2021 – Prism Event, tickets sales to be announced
If you missed the opportunity to attend the Prism Award Information webinar, you can watch it here. We hope it inspires you to take the steps to become a nominating coach – we encourage you to start the process early! We know that there are many coaches doing exceptional work with individuals, within organizations or for companies they are serving.
The documents as referenced:
- NOMINATION FORM!
- Prism Eligible and Award Categories
- Prism Judging Process
- Prism Rubic
- Prism Success Strategies
We believe in recognizing, celebrating and investing in our Coaching community. The program is intended to:
- Create a valuable and dynamic experience for recipients of the award and participants at the Gala.
- Reveal great coaching stories and strategies.
- Honour the commitment to coaching that individuals and companies/organizations make.
- Provide constructive and valuable feedback to nominees that will inspire them to move their coaching initiatives to the next level.
- Create an educational event for nominees, coaches and potential future clients.
Please take the time to consider the work you, or other coaches are doing, through the lens of telling a story. The nomination documents are the necessary tools you will need to use to make the Selection Committee aware of your story. The Judges will consider your story and the data you submit. Please don’t worry about not having all the data requested of you. The numbers are only one part of the Selection process! Our Chapter’s Prism Awards Gala provides the forum for organizations in any sector to celebrate and publicize their successes throughout the coaching world and beyond.
So, let’s do this together! The 2021 Prism Committee would like to challenge all Chapter Coaches to think of at least one organization that is using coaching to impact performance and is receiving tangible value from the coaching to nominate for an award.
We are here to support you with making your nomination!
