Alumni gather at PRISM Awards reception

RRU Alumni pick up PRISM Award in Toronto

The International Coach Federation (ICF) PRISM Award was created in Toronto in 2000, with ICF International adopting the concept in 2005. For 15 years, this award has continued to honour 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.

The award for the ICF Toronto PRISM Medium Private Sector category was Nelson Education, a Canadian publisher, and was accepted by Jessica Phinn, VP of People and Engagement. Nelson's vision of "fostering an agile organization," was served through the culture-shifting "Coaching Excellence" program led by coaches (RRU Alumni) Kirk Fox and Dominic Scaffidi. Fox said that after the program, "A full 100% of participants said they would recommend the program and managers told me that they were having meaningful and effective conversations for the first time."
