Believe in Yourself!

As leaders we often unknowingly accept bias in our perspectives and this can impose self limiting beliefs that will affect performance. Unfortunately , we sometimes allow these limits to affect how we interact and groom the potential in our teams. This very powerful video by Caroline Casey will inspire you, trigger reflection and, most importantly, reinforce how important it is to be unwavering in the way you believe in yourself and your team.

Are you placing obstacles in the way of your ability to make a difference?


Caroline Casey: Looking past limits | Video on

Caroline Casey has dedicated the past decade of her life to changing how global society views people with disabilities. In 2000, she rode 1000 kilometers across India on an elephant to...

raise funds for Sight Savers. Then, as the founding CEO of Kanchi in Dublin, she developed a set of best practices (based on ISO 9000 quality standards) for businesses, to help them see "disabled" workers as an asset as opposed to a liability. Hundreds of companies have adopted the standards, changing their policies and attitudes.

In 2004 started the O2 Ability Awards to recognize Irish businesses for their inclusion of people with disabilities, both as employees and customers. The initiative has received international praise and, in 2010, a parallel program was launched in Spain.
