UBC coaching programs recognized with International Prism Award 2018 – Honourable Mention

In the world of organizational development, coaching has become the most effective tool to accelerate results in learning and professional development and building engaged workplaces.

UBC has received the 2018 Honourable Mention for the International Prism Award, a prestigious honour from the International Coach Federation that recognizes the impact of UBC’s rigorous coaching programs in all its facets and in a number of areas, from personal development to shaping the organizational culture and addressing strategic goals.

Across the organization, UBC encourages students, staff and faculty to lead through a coach approach to discover and explore new ways of learning – from leadership programs to performance conversations. Since 2001, over 4,300 faculty and staff have accessed free, one-on-one professional coaching services through the Coaching@UBC program and Career Navigation and Transition services. The community of coaches currently includes 55 internal coaches (those coaches who also work at UBC) as well as 27 external coaches. UBC also offers staff and faculty electing to pursue ICF-accredited coaching training access and scholarship awards for the UBC Coaching Internship Program.

UBC was shortlisted as one of four global finalists earlier this summer, and the award was announced on Sept. 26, 2018 at the Human Capital Institute’s Learning and Leadership Development Conference in Chicago, Illinois. Congratulations to all!


Coaching@UBC provides an opportunity for faculty and staff to focus and move forward on career goals through the exploration of ideas and candid dialogue with a confidential and unbiased thinking partner. Learn more.
