In this Introduction to the Enneagram, a personality type system which focuses on the interactions of our 3 centers of intelligence, you will learn to how to enhance your coaching presence with your clients.

Part of building presence is noticing what prevents us from trusting our gut reactions, opening our heart or quieting our mind to be fully present with our clients.  When we can discover this for ourselves we can help our clients to be grounded in the moment, in touch with their emotions, and access to that internal knowing of what is needed for this moment.  CCEs pending

Brian Mitchell-Walker, PCC
Brian considers himself, like all of his clients, as a complex human being where only parts of who he is show in any given moment.  Brian now operates with the belief that the more in touch he is in the moment – that it enriches not only the skills he brings but also what can arise to enhance the moment.


Roland Legge
Roland has been learning about the Enneagram since 2010 and studied with the Enneagram Institute. The Enneagram has helped him to understand what makes himself tick. He has become emotionally stronger, more forgiving of himself, and more confident. Courageously in his 50’s he began a new career in coaching and teaching the Enneagram.

Partnership 2021-2023
ICF SK+MB and Leadership Saskatoon
ICF Prairie and Leadership Saskatoon have partnered for 2021-2023.

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.  Leadership Saskatoon provides a 10-month community leadership development program.

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.

2022 Prism Awards

We have plans!  Keep watching for exciting updates>

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.
