ICF Minnesota Recognizes Twin Cities Orthopedics (TCO) with the 2020 ICF MN PRISM Award for Excellence in Coaching

Twin Cities Orthopedics (TCO), one of the nation’s largest independent orthopedic practices, received the International Coaching Federation (ICF) Minnesota Prism Award for organizational excellence in coaching at the 2020 Virtual ICF Minnesota Awards Ceremony on September 29, 2020. The Prism Award is ICF Minnesota’s highest honor for organizations that demonstrate how their coaching initiatives have addressed key goals, shaped organizational culture, and yielded discernible and measurable positive impacts.



Our 2020 Prism Award nominees

Twin Cities Orthopedics

(TCO) has experienced rapid growth in the past decade, fueled by major initiatives including an expanded footprint across the Twin Cities metro, strategic partnerships with professional sports teams, colleges, and high schools, the co-founding of Infinite Health Collaborative, and data-driven decision-making. This award recognizes the organization’s successful coaching initiatives, which enabled senior leadership to effectively scale operations while maintaining a healthy, “Be The Difference” culture.

“To be honest, at first we didn’t think we needed coaching,” said Aaron Johnson, TCO Chief Operating Officer. “It’s only when you stop for gas that you realize the tires could use some air and the windows are a little dirty. Once we took the time to work on how we communicated, planned, and led – the road ahead became clearer, and it was a much smoother ride. We’re grateful for the support from everyone at Good Leadership and are incredibly honored to receive this award.”


TCO received executive leadership coaching support from Good Leadership with remarkable results. New initiatives were launched - the company developed its first long-term strategic business plan and leadership expectations model, which were communicated broadly across the entire organization. Leaders became more efficient - energy shifted toward strategy and business development. Most importantly, the patient experience improved - patient satisfaction in 2020 has reached an all-time high, with 99% of patients reporting they would recommend TCO to family and friends.

HUNT Electric

John Axelson, President/CEO of Hunt Electric,  was named as a finalist for the ICF Minnesota Prism Award for organizational excellence in coaching in a virtual awards ceremony on September 29, 2020.  “We are honored to be recognized for our investment in coaching and leadership development.  Hunt’s commitment to developing and empowering our people is another part of what will ensure we remain a great place to work and continue to be a leader in the electrical design, building, and maintenance industry.”


Over the last 5 years, Hunt has partnered with the University of St. Thomas, FMI Leadership Institute, and Stacey Larsen and the coaches at Authentic Edge, LLC to develop and support emerging and current leaders and to foster a culture of collaboration and feedback throughout the company.  Participants touted the initiative’s impact, sharing the positive impact it has had on company culture, team communication, and their own personal awareness and growth.
