Commenting on the LIFT Awards 2021 Joanne Hession, Founder of LIFT Ireland, notes: “The behaviour of leaders impacts on those around them. We tend to think of leaders as being people in positions of power. But we are all leaders – in our own families; in our workplaces; in our communities. At LIFT, we consider leadership a trait that can be developed, lived and emulated – from the kitchen table to the boardroom.

“These awards are about acknowledging the skills and values of those who display positive leadership every day across the country. We are all individual parts of a jigsaw of millions of pieces that makes up Ireland. We form the culture, character and values of our country. We want to celebrate those who are doing this in a positive and powerful way.”

About the LIFT Awards:

LIFT facilitators from all over the country nominate people in their lives who really live the LIFT values. The aim of these awards is to inspire the nation by celebrating stories of everyday leadership with impact.
