Excellence: When Perfect is Not Good Enough (OC)

Decrease your stress and increase your joy in your work and your life. Overcome perfectionist tendencies and learn how to evolve into healthy, happy high achievers.

People who are perfectionistic have unrealistically high expectations for their own work. They take little joy in their accomplishments thinking their results are never quite good enough. This means that they might avoid taking on certain tasks as they fear that they can’t do them perfectly.

High achievers enjoy the “flow” of marshalling their strongest skills and stretching towards a challenge. They do the best they can with the time and energy they have now. But perfectionists struggle towards a perfect goal and find the hard work and long hours exhausting and the results imperfect.

The course will decrease your stress and increase your joy in your work and your life.

Managers, team leaders, or professionals who suspect they might have perfectionistic tendencies and would like to know how to overcome those tendencies will learn how to evolve into healthy, happy high achievers.
