Supporting LIFT Ireland
LIFT is for everyone. Being a leader isn’t about having a title or position of authority. It is not about being the CEO, the captain or the manager. We believe that all of us are leaders. No matter our role in life, we can all lead by example and set standards for ourselves and others.
The inspiration for LIFT was developed as our founders witnessed the huge benefits that positive leadership, not only a person’s career, but their day-to-day lives. Together they wondered how much stronger we would be as a country if our children, teachers, community members, and businesses lived according to leadership values such as respect, honesty, integrity, and empathy.
Our goal at LIFT Ireland is that, within 10 years, 10% of the population will have partaken in LIFT’s leadership learning process. As a not-for-profit initiative we rely on the support of our members. Further down the page we have outlined the ways you can get involved.
LIFT Ireland officially launched in 2018 with 23 Founding Partners. These organisations made a commitment to participate and roll out LIFT within their organisation. Our partner programme continues to grow. As a partner, your contribution assists us in growing LIFT nationwide. LIFT Ireland can then bring the roundtable process, training and materials to charities and schools across Ireland.
Become a Facilitator
Integral to LIFT’s leadership learning process are roundtables, lead by certified facilitators. There are currently over 600 facilitators in Ireland. It is via this network of facilitators that LIFT Ireland aims to achieve its goal of reaching 10% of the population within 10 years.
By becoming a LIFT Facilitator you become a central part of a national initiative to raise the standards of personal leadership in Ireland. In doing so, you will also be helping to raise the standards of life for all people of Ireland.
Become a Partner
Being a partner means making a commitment to roll out LIFT’s leadership learning process within your organisation. When you become a partner, we train a number of your team to become LIFT Facilitators and run the process in your organisation.
Incorporating LIFT’s leadership learning process will increase levels of leadership within your organisation immensely. But, aside from that, you become a valued part of the greater LIFT community, joining a network of truly remarkable organisations. By partaking in this initiative, you are playing an important role in raising the standards of leadership across Ireland.
Become a Friend
If you are not yet ready to become a LIFT Facilitator or Partner, you are can lend your support by becoming a friend of LIFT Ireland. Your support alone is a major boost for all members of the initiative.
As a friend of LIFT we’ll keep you posted on our progress and share our people’s stories. You will also be invited to future talks and rollout events.
Complete Our Survey
LIFT’s leadership values were identified through national and independently-run surveys. During this period of research, national representative samples of the Irish population were asked to list the leadership attributes they felt our country needed to develop most.
We want to build on this research with the help of our community. If you’d like to help LIFT in a small but meaningful way, we invite you to complete a quick survey. There are only five questions and it shouldn’t take more than two minutes to complete. Thanks!
