In loving memory of CDI Dream Team member, Pat Schuler, CDI is proud to announce the Pat Schuler Kick Butt Award.
The idea was brought to CDI by member Virginia Franco and we can’t think of a better way in which to honor Pat.
Because, let’s face it, when you think Kick Butt, you will always think of Pat Schuler.
It may have been the name of two of her programs – Kick Butt Sales and Kick Butt Women – but Pat was the epitome of the Kick Butt spirit as an entrepreneur, friend, and leader. She has led many career industry professionals she coached to walk her path and evoke her beautiful and powerful spirit.
So with the Pat Schuler Kick Butt Award, CDI will be seeking to recognize one member each October who has truly been kicking butt!
The criteria for the award is simply based on recognizing someone who best represents what Pat stood for:
Fearless in creating and innovating within the industry and/or the individual business.
- High integrity in communicating with others, customers, peers, colleagues, and on social media.
- Life-long commitment to learning demonstrated through personal stretch to pursue additional training in new areas.
- Focus on giving back through industry contributions such as industry committee participation, mentorship, or article contribution.
Nominations (self or third party) will be open during August each year.
Subject to change, but the nomination process is set to be as simple as sending an essay in MS Word that describes how the individual meets the listed criteria and is qualified to win the award. This can be emailed (in August only) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The winner will be announced in October each year.
The winner will be sent a logo (currently in design) and certificate to represent their achievement.
Help us honor Pat’s legacy. Go out there and kick butt for your business, your life, and in memory of Pat Schuler!
Rest in Peace, Pat Schuler. You are deeply loved and we honor the difference you made to our lives and businesses.
