LIFT Ireland is a not-for-profit initiative aimed at increasing the level of positive leadership in Ireland. Founded in late 2017, the movement was officially launched in May 2018 at LIFT OFF, an inaugural event attended by some of Ireland’s foremost leaders in business, arts, education and sport.
LIFT is a force to improve the quality of leadership in Ireland – from the kitchen table to the classroom; in the clubhouse and the boardroom.
It's an eight-part, group learning programme which is being rolled out nationwide via a volunteer facilitator network with an overall goal of reaching 10% of the population within ten years. We firmly believe that the more people ‘living LIFT’, the better it is for our country’s future.
Whether you’re a business owner aiming to increase employee engagement and productivity or a parent striving to connect the family and build harmony in the home. Each of us is a potential leader and can grow these skills on the LIFT roundtables - find out more about LIFT HERE
