ICF SK+MB and Leadership Saskatoon

The Board would like to announce the partnership with Leadership Saskatoon and our local Chapter for 2021-2023. Leadership Saskatoon provides a 10-month community leadership development program that boasts over 500 alumni from all sectors.

This partnership acknowledges the team coaching that our members provide to the program and the importance of working with professionally certified coaches as well as the benefits of working together to cross-promote each other’s programming.

For many years, our members have coached the Leadership Saskatoon community leaders.  Most of the time this was the leader’s first experience with coaching and the significant benefits to their personal and professional development. Team coaching provides the leaders with the space to examine local community challenges through a team project as well as the individual’s leadership impact. The coaches provide a safe space for the team to examine their leadership when challenges are ambiguous and uncertain, a stretch for those who are used to solving problems and having the answers.

The Board is elated that Leadership Saskatoon shares the common interest that developing leaders requires a multi-layered curriculum that includes coaching to challenge leader’s current mindset, to shift their paradigms, and to move into action. Leadership Saskatoon Executive Director, Sheri Hillestad Smith, joins the chapter as one of our speakers at the upcoming Prism Gala on May 18, 2021.

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.

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.
