You’ve probably seen the study that showed women won’t apply for a job unless they meet 100% of the qualifications, while men have no problem throwing their hats in the ring when they hit about 60% of them. It’s just one example of the perfectionism that’s been ingrained into ambitious and high-achieving women, and coach Micha Goebig wants to help you unlearn it. She’ll teach you how to identify unhealthy perfectionism, and show you why striving for perfect is both frustrating and impossible. Going forward, you’ll increase your flexibility and tolerance for (perceived) failure.
