Releasing Yourself From the Perfectionism Trap

Releasing Yourself From the Perfectionism Trap

We live in a world of rampant perfectionism. We often think our “high standards” and “drive for excellence” are performance motivators, and what we don’t realize is that a perfectionist mindset is actually a performance inhibitor.

We are grateful to Sani Harmon, co-founder and CEO of Stop Meeting Like This, for this incredible October 2021 workshop: Releasing Yourself from the Perfectionism Trap!

Be sure to watch this program if you missed the live session so you can learn:

  • The impact perfectionism is having on women’s health, happiness, and productivity
  • The line between “going above and beyond” and perfectionism, and how to know when you’ve crossed it
  • Simple mindset shifts to help you maximize your time, reset your expectations, and celebrate progress
  • Use-now strategies for cultivating an organizational culture of resilience and growth, creating healthier teams without sacrificing quality
