"I found the program to be incredibly helpful in building awareness of some of the tendencies that cause me to feel stress at work (and at home!), and in providing concrete tools to approach my life in a more sustainable, playful and connected way. The class ultimately freed up time in my daily life because I eliminated a couple of time-wasting habits, including obsessing over some small decisions. By being aware of when I was spiraling, I was able to recenter myself more often and be more productive."
Our training programs help participants develop awareness of the perfectionist cycle that many high-achievers experience
Our research shows that high-achievers who strongly identify with this cycle:
Feel 31% more burned out than average
Experience their job as feeling 26% less sustainable
Are 22% more likely to be considering a job change
We've supported the talent-related goals of partners such as:
We can work with you to develop an approach that fits your team and company needs. Typically, we partner with companies and organizations in one of three ways:
Leading a standalone 60-90 minute training to support early awareness-building
Providing a 3-part training for managers helping them to identify personal, management and operational changes that can support resilient patterns in place of perfectionist ones
Leading our signature 12 week training program for a cohort of high-performers, designed to create the conditions for sustainable, resilient success and satisfaction
What participants are saying
"Ashley's training program for Highspot EMEA was immensely helpful in not only building awareness around perfectionism and how it can show up in our professional lives, but by opening the door to open and real discussions for our employees. Several attendees, including myself, were unaware of the perfectionist patterns that turn up in our lives, and understanding that we weren't alone whilst providing practical tools and systems we could use to protect ourselves and our work was immensely valuable. Even those who don't strongly identify as having perfectionist tendencies found value in understanding how they could support their colleagues and teammates increase resilience against perfectionism, which will strongly benefit Highspot as we continue to build our future as an organisation."
