August Womenar: Embracing Imperfection | Letting Go of Perfectionism in Pursuit of Balance

August 7, 2024 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM (MDT)


Launched by our Women in Tech CO Council, our Womenar series are bi-monthly webinars that aim to identify and understand the issues facing women in technology and leadership positions. We invite both men and women to engage in these bi-monthly programs.

Are you tired of chasing perfection and feeling exhausted by the relentless pressure to be flawless? Join us for an illuminating interactive webinar as we embark on a journey to redefine perfection and embrace the beauty of imperfection. In this transformative webinar, we'll explore the pervasive influence of perfectionism in our lives, drawing from personal experiences and profound insights. From the relentless pursuit of flawlessness in our appearance, to the constant need for approval in our professional endeavors, perfectionism manifests in various aspects of our lives, leaving us feeling overwhelmed and unfulfilled.

Key Takeaways:

  • Insightful Reflections: Gain a deeper understanding of the origins of perfectionism and its impact on our mental well-being through introspective reflections and shared experiences.
  • Reframing Perfect: Challenge the conventional notion of perfection and discover how to redefine it on your own terms. Explore practical strategies for overcoming perfectionism and embracing imperfection in various aspects of your life.
  • Cultivating Self-Compassion: Learn evidence-based techniques for cultivating self-compassion and kindness towards yourself.
  • Authentic Living: Discover the power of authenticity and self-expression in redefining your understanding of perfect and finding fulfillment.
