On May 9th, history will be made in the Burlington Hotel, Dublin, as we celebrate the official launch of LIFT Ireland.For those of you who are unfamiliar with LIFT Ireland, it is a fantastic initiative designed to build and nurture better leadership throughout the nation, for both young and old alike.
Studies have shown that despite Ireland ranking quite high in OECD’ Better Life Index 2015 (i.e. we have a good quality of life, services, social connections and environment), over 59% of nationals have little trust in the institutions that govern us. Educational, medical, governmental and religious bodies have let us down quite a bit in the past.
In order to combat the recent downturn in trust, we as a nation need to better ourselves by recognising and practicing good leadership qualities. LIFT Ireland is going to focus on rebuilding trust by teaching and actively applying leadership values to real life from primary school right up to adulthood. Hopefully, in time, this will create a knock-on effect and through determination, confidence and knowledge, we will have built a better system for policing public procedures and business practices.
This truly is a wonderful organisation with some brilliant ideals, and we are so excited to be a part of their official launch event with New York Time’s best-selling author and leadership expert Dr. John Maxwell. Dr. Maxwell has authored many books on leadership, chief among them The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership.
