As part of Rowing Ireland’s Women in Sport Programme, regional women’s coaching networks have been established across Ireland. These networks give coaches an opportunity to expand their coaching network to other rowing clubs and develop their coaching through discussions, sharing experiences, and learning resources.
Through this formal LIFT partnership, the Women in Coaching Networks will get the opportunity to take part in the LIFT leadership training. The LIFT training gives an opportunity to self-reflect, assess and improve your leadership skills, that will hopefully benefit your club involvement and coaching.
LIFT Ireland is a not-for-profit initiative aimed at increasing the level of positive leadership in Ireland. It does this through its peer-learning based roundtable process. Each week, for a total of eight weeks, a LIFT facilitator guides a roundtable of 4-6 individuals through a specific leadership value. Using a proven systematic approach, the members of each roundtable reflect on what that value means to them and how they can improve in this area.
The opportunity to partner with Lift Ireland to provide leadership training to the Women in Coaching Networks will be a great benefit to the coaches involved. Hopefully, with the success of this partnership, we will be able to roll out the opportunity to partake in the LIFT leadership training to the wider rowing organisation.
