Outstanding Individual Contributor Award Winner 2020 - Ann Fogolin, MCC

Take a look at our Outstanding Individual Contributor winner for 2020, Ann Fogolin, MCC. Who do you think deserves to be recognized in 2021?

Below are excerpts from the form submitted nominating Ann. 

How has the nominee demonstrated clear and strong leadership?

Ann made a difference in the coaching community through her commitment and dedication to advancing the coaching profession by taking a leadership role as an MCC coach to develop new and seasoned coaches and makes a difference in the lives of others as a result of her work as a faculty member at three coach training schools:

  1. Coach U/Corporate Coach U for the past 8 years, leading in the Core Essentials and Advanced programs, strengthening the coaching skills of leader.
  2. UT Dallas (2020) as a mentor in the Executive and Professional Coaching program
  3. Coaching out of the Box, delivering programs in the online 5/5/5 Coaching Skills Training Program and 5/5/5 Train the Trainer that attracts participants with a reach into 38 different countries.

In addition, Ann is or has:

  • an assessor in ICF Global's ACC and PCC Marker identification for coaches applying for and recertifying their credentials.
  • participated on the ethics subcommittees for ACTO for Coach Trainers.
  • a coach with her own breadth of clients from new and experienced coaches to employees within organizations who are new to management or executive-level leaders.
  • a certified mentor through the iCF Global program.

How has the nominee demonstrated professionalism and selfless service?

Ann’s focus in all of the programs she develops and/or facilitates is to develop core coaching competencies at the ICF Global’s ACC, PCC and MCC levels. She is dedicated to raising the standard of the coaching profession. The testimonials on her website are evidence of the impact she is having in her classes and with her personal clients.

Ann participated in February in a 3-day review of the PCC markers and the impact of the updated ICF Global Core Competencies. As a Professional Mentor Coach, she supports those looking to become credentialed. Mentor coaching and supervision provides opportunity to navigate skill and personal development as well as business building. To date, all mentees that have applied for credentialing having worked with the nominee, have been successful.

Ann makes time to volunteer her services at one of the Wellspring locations in Ontario. Her story reflects her value of giving back to the community, especially when she herself has experienced the positive impact of an organization’s work and service.

In 2018 her involvement at Wellspring evolved to include a board position where she continues to bring a coach approach to the discussions at board meetings.

She is a consummate professional who actively lives her value of continuous improvement and is authentic and genuine. She is a person of integrity - someone who walks the talk and demonstrates that her behaviour is fully aligned with her values.

How has the nominee participated actively in ICF Toronto and contributed to its growth?

Ann is a long-standing member and has been actively involved as a coach volunteer in our ICF Toronto Chapter Coach Connect program over a 3-year period and was a coach in one of the organizations included in our Gift of Coaching Award submission.

In 2019, Ann volunteered as a coach at our HRPA laser coaching booth. She also has participated in our annual chapter conference over the past 4 years.
