RELEVANT Management Consulting, an official Hogan distributor in Germany, and the German chapter of the International Coach Federation presented the inaugural German Prism Award to CMS Law Tax, an international law firm with 74 offices worldwide.
The award, modeled after the ICF’s International Prism Award, is given to organizations with programs that make a difference in the coaching community through professionalism, quality, and sustainability.
“We are very proud to be supported by an extraordinary jury of several well-known experts in the coaching industry in Germany,” said Dr. Geertje Tutschka, ACC, president of ICF Germany.
Dr. René Kusch, owner of RELEVANT, explained why CMS was chosen as the winner of this prestigious award.
“We are honored to recognize CMS Law Tax as the first winner of the German Prism Award,” said Kusch. “The purpose of this award is to feature organizations that take a cutting-edge approach to their coaching programs, which made CMS the clear choice among a strong group of nominees. They have shown their success by developing a robust coaching culture.”
The nominees represented a variety of industries, and each were tasked with providing insight into how their coaching programs contributed to the achievement of important corporate goals and advanced the coaching profession.
“More and more organizations are implementing coaching programs as part of their training and development processes,” said Tutschka. “Our goal was to identify the organization that truly set itself apart from the competition, and CMS Law Tax did just that with the Partner Peak Performance Program (PPP) for their leaders and designated ‘rainmakers.’”
Although this is the first year in which the German Prism Award was presented, Kusch said RELEVANT is already looking forward to 2019.
“Working together with ICF Germany in order to present this award is a mutually beneficial relationship for all parties involved,” said Kusch. “The ICF is the world’s premier coaching organization, and we are privileged to be involved in the early stages of such a prestigious distinction for German coaching programs.”
Applications for the 2019 Prism Award 2019 will be accepted in Spring of 2019 at www.coachingtag.com.
