ICF Ottawa Prism Award Recipients Honoured

2 Feb 2017

MD Financial Management, Export Development Canada, Canadian Blood Services, Kongsberg Geospatial, Office of the Controller General; Treasury Board, Bruyère Continuing Care named winners of the Prism Award by Ottawa Chapter of the International Coach Federation.

(Ottawa, ON - February 1, 2017) The Ottawa Chapter of the International Coach Federation (ICF) has announced winners of the ICF Ottawa Prism Award. The first ever local Ottawa Prism Award honours organizations that have implemented coaching programs that fulfill rigorous professional standards, and exemplify how professional coaching can maximize individual potential, shape the culture of an organization and address key strategic goals leading directly to bottom line benefits.

“We want to congratulate the Prism award recipients,” said Denis Lévesque, ICF Ottawa Prism Award committee Chair and ICF Ottawa President. “"Coaching in Organization has evolved significantly in the last few years and has changed from being an Executive perk to a game changer for organizations. We now have clearly documented results showing that organizations that implement a coaching culture are more successful than their competitors, and that coaching culture in organizations have a direct impact to the top line and to bottom line. And now for the first time in Ottawa, we are recognizing organizations that have reaped great results from the effort and time put in to create their coaching culture. Ottawa should be proud!".”

The Prism Award was created by ICF Toronto in 2000, with ICF International adopting the concept in 2005. ICF Ottawa is a chartered chapter of the International Coach Federation, a leading global organization for coaches, with over 20,000 members in more than 100 countries and more than 9,000 credentialed coaches worldwide. ICF is dedicated to advancing the coaching profession by setting high ethical standards, providing independent certification, and building a worldwide network of credentialed coaches. Coaching is a distinct service and differs greatly from therapy, consulting, mentoring, or training. Please visit https://ottawacoaches.ca/ to learn more about the latest news and events.
