2021 Prism Awards

Let the nominating begin!

ICF Saskatchewan + Manitoba Chapter 2021 Prism Awards

By Events, PRISMNo Comments

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:

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!

For help with making or writing your nomination:

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.
