Perfectionism vs People Leading: Is It Good Or Bad For Your Career?

For some, being a perfectionist is seen as a good thing. For others, it’s a bad trait to have. We all have some understanding of what it means to be a perfectionist, but there’s more to it than meets the eye.

Perfectionism is on our radar because we’re seeing a lot of it when it comes to people management and the impact it has on those with a tendency to strive for perfection and their ability to manage others. 

In this episode, we chat about what perfectionism actually means and what you can do to alter your behaviour to lead a happier, balanced life. 

In this episode: 

  • Defining perfectionism
  • People management and perfectionism - leading tasks instead of people
  • What drives a perfectionist’s behaviour? The fear of failure
  • Characteristic checklist: 10 key traits of a perfectionist
  • It’s not all bad - the benefits of being a perfectionist
  • What you can do to work on yourself and your relationships
  • Activity - separating satisfaction from perfection

“Perfectionists are severely restricted. If you are always looking for the perfect answer you're never going to find it in someone else.” #Perfectionists #People Leaders
