Perfectionism and Burnout: Why Perfectionists Burn Out Faster (Webinar Presented by Dr. Geri Puleo)
Perfectionism is a double-edged sword. Yes, perfectionists are driven toward excellence but their definition of “excellence” is often quite different from what others consider to be excellent. As a result, they are much more susceptible to burning out as a result of their efforts.
This 6-minute “mini” webinar discusses not only some of the common thought processes that influence the way in which perfectionists work, but also ways to help perfectionists understand the important difference between “excellence” and “perfection.”
