The International Coach Federation (ICF) recognizes and annually honors its individual members, Chapters, and organizations that have demonstrated a remarkable commitment to advancing the art, science and practice of professional coaching in their communities and beyond.
ICF Chapters are the voice and presence of ICF and professional coaching in their respective communities. ICF celebrates high-performing Chapters through its Chapter Recognition Program.
In 2005, ICF Global adopted the Prism Award, a concept developed by the Greater Toronto ICF Chapter that recognizes businesses and organizations that demonstrate how professional coaching—used as a leadership strategy—pays off on many fronts. This award has become the epitome of what professional coaching can accomplish at the corporate/organizational level.
Each year, the ICF Global Board Chair presents an individual or organization with the ICF Chair's Award (formerly the President's Award) in recognition of the work he or she is doing to advance the mission and vision of ICF. There is no application process for this award.
