Leading with Imperfection (Virtual)

November 11, 2020, 1:30-2:30 p.m. EST

Free to KyCPA members

About the Class

Perfection is one of the most pervasive challenges holding leaders back – in fact 1 in 2 people struggle with some form of perfectionism. We too often believe that if we achieve perfection, we will also achieve happiness and success -whether it be in our professional life, personal life, or in ourselves. This belief is holding us back. Symptoms of perfectionism include procrastination, control, people-pleasing, unrealistic expectations, conflict avoidance, feeling stuck, imposter syndrome, all-or-nothing thinking, anxiety, comparison, and stress. In Leading with Imperfection, you will learn how to take your energy toward perfectionism and turn it to success. You will learn about the two types of perfectionism, how perfectionism patterns impact your life and leadership abilities, and the bold moves to take to break free from it. Attendees will leave feeling more empowered than ever before and will have the tools to help them lead with imperfection and build their confidence.

Studies show inclusive companies sell more, are more innovative, and have more bottom-line revenue and returns on equity. Why, then, is it so challenging for organizations to embrace the need to create a diverse and inclusive workplace? 

Make time to participate in this important webinar as D+I thought leader LaFern Batie explores how to gain traction on D+I efforts and grow your initiatives organically by focusing on the foundational items that make the most impact.
