Once in a generation, or maybe once in a lifetime, you are present at a moment of great change, great hope and great vision. Well this week, WhiteLight Consulting were part of just one such moment.
Leadership expert Joanne Hession gathered 300 of Ireland’s most influential people into the Clayton Burlington Hotel where Dr. John Maxwell delivered a leadership masterclass. The event was to mark the launch of LIFT Ireland.
LIFT stands for Leading Ireland’s Future Together. We all recognise that good leadership is important, whether we are at home, in school, at work or involved in Government and politics. Our aim at LIFT is to create better leaders in Ireland and make our country the best place it can be.
We will achieve this by bringing people together from across the country, starting in May 2018, to talk about eight values that the people of Ireland have chosen as being most important for a good leader to display. Already, we have a network of over 200 volunteers who are going to meet with colleagues and peers: across their companies, with their community organisation or with family and friends about how to bring those values to the fore in everyday life and decision-making. We aim to double this network of volunteers by the end of the year and to continue to grow so that over the ten year period between 2018-2028, almost half a million people will have taken part in this initiative.
WhiteLight Consulting were delighted to be part of this launch with Joanne Hession and the Founding Partners of LIFT. We look forward to supporting their work in changing Ireland’s future.
