The International Prism Award honors businesses and organizations with coaching programs that:
Ireland’s Health Service Executive (HSE) was named the winner of the 2018 ICF International Prism Award during a September 26, 2018, ceremony in Chicago, Illinois, USA.
HSE’s Prism nominating coach was Irene Harris, ACC.
The 2018 Honorable Mention recipient is the University of British Columbia (UBC). UBC’s Prism nominating coach was Donna Howes, PCC.
Additional finalists were Airbus, nominated by Brian Chaloner, PCC, and the Co-operative Bank of Kenya, nominated by Eileen Laskar, MCC.
ICF hosted the Prism Award ceremony in conjunction with the Human Capital Institute’s 2018 Learning and Leadership Development Conference. Delegates from all four finalist organizations were invited to attend the full conference and share their organizations’ coaching success stories with more than 280 HR and talent management professionals from around the world.
ICF will open nominations for the 2019 ICF International Prism Award on March 12, 2019. The nomination deadline will be April 23, 2019, at 2 p.m. (New York).
To be eligible for Prism consideration, an organization must meet the following criteria:
ICF will publicly announce the 2019 International Prism Award finalists during the Human Capital Institute’s 2019 Learning and Leadership Development Conference, September 10–12, 2019, in Boston, Massachusetts, USA. Finalist organizations’ coaching sponsors will share their success stories as part of a panel discussion at the conference.
ICF will announce the winner of the 2019 ICF International Prism Award at ICF Converge 2019, October 23–26, 2019, in Prague, Czech Republic.
Before you begin your online nomination on March 12, download the 2019 Prism nomination worksheet. Although only one individual may access the online nomination form, we encourage you to make the worksheet a collaborative document. The most successful Prism Award nominations represent a team effort that includes the nominating coach, coaching sponsor and other individuals involved with developing, managing and measuring the impact of coaching in the organization. A collaborative planning process ensures that you provide our panel of judges with the fullest and clearest picture of coaching and its impact on the organization.
We also recommend reviewing the 2019 Prism scoring rubric. This is the same document our panel of judges will use to guide their scoring work.
If you are an ICF-credentialed coach or an HR or talent development professional who wants to spearhead your organization’s Prism nomination, register now for “Preparing Your Prism Award Nomination: Strategies for Success.”
