Navigating Perfectionism as a Manager

The word “perfect” has an overwhelmingly positive connotation, but it’s also a largely unattainable goal. As Winston Churchill said, “Perfection is the enemy of progress,” and it’s still true today. As managers juggle multiple priorities in today’s dynamic workplace, perfectionism has the potential to cause leaders to avoid tasks or to work too hard, leading to burnout and unhappiness. It can show up as micromanaging or a need for control, which can impact healthy work culture. In this course, Morra Aarons-Mele teaches proven skills based on behavioral science to help navigate perfectionism, lessen its impact on you and your team, and do excellent work!
