The Double-Edged Sword of Perfectionism: And Strategies For Leaving It Behind

It’s no secret that professional women continue to be underrepresented in leadership roles. While there are outside forces that play a part in limiting leadership growth, one obstacle to success for many high-achieving women is perfectionism.

Girls are socialized to be polite, play it safe, and get all A’s while boys are taught to get dirty, take risks, and be brave.

Our guest expert, Elise Holtzman will break it all down as we explore the double-edged sword of perfection along with strategies for leaving it behind. We will explore:

  • How can pursuing perfection undermine your professional growth and leadership potential?
  • How can you let go of perfectionism and increase your tolerance for “failure” so you can take risks, build resilience, and create impact for yourself and your organization?
  • Strategies for getting past societal expectations to thrive
