Midlands Science, was delighted to recently announce details of a new collaboration with LIFT (Leading Ireland’s Future Together) which was established to build each one of us into a better leader. Each partner makes a commitment to LIFT, to participate in the learning process and to facilitate further discussion within their organisation on the value of positive leadership.
Jackie Gorman, CEO of Midlands Science commented,
‘Each of us is a potential leader and this leadership can take place within both our own personal and familial or indeed our professional working roles and when we partake in any corporate or community-based team. We are delighted to announce that we will be teaming up with LIFT. We are really looking forward to developing our personal leadership qualities and abilities and to utilising all of the valuable skills that we have learned thus far in our own work, with groups of people we will be engaging in the year ahead.’
LIFT teaches and enables people to make better decisions, to ask better questions and to influence each other positively. The leadership values used by LIFT in its training programmes are Listening, Positive Attitude, Respect, Competence, Determination, Empathy, Accountability, Honesty.
LIFT Co-founder, Joanne Hession said,
“LIFT is delighted to partner with Midlands Science. We greatly admire the mission of Midlands Science and we are so excited to build leadership muscle with their team who will have such an influence around Ireland. The LIFT team is completely behind them as we work towards a better Ireland and brighter future. We can’t wait to train team members as certified LIFT Facilitators.”
Jackie Gorman continued,
‘By taking the decision to become a LIFT Ireland partner, Midlands Science is committed to both strengthening our own leadership muscle and raising the level of leadership in the organisation itself and also sharing the impact of this learning with the increasing number of corporate and academic stakeholders that we are fortunate enough to work with. We are also pleased and privileged to be joining a network of organisations and individuals whose mission it is to collectively drive positive leadership change in Ireland and the hope is that we, as LIFT facilitators will now have the tools to bring this to people in our communities who need it.’
