Lunchtime Learning - Fear of Failure: Why Perfectionism Stops Us in Our Tracks (Virtual) (MSLL042721)

Course Memo

"No!" "Stop!" "Don't even begin!" "If you never start, then you cannot fail!" The words perfectionism speaks into our minds are harsh ones.  We are fooled into thinking that if we never begin, or procrastinate, or focus solely on the results, we cannot stumble.  So, what do we do about these messages and ideas we have trained ourselves to hear when we inevitably falter?  In this session, you will learn how to identify perfectionist tendencies (we all have them!), and what to do when the fear of failing begins to creep in.  

Amie is passionate about many things, including her faith, family, the power of a good belly laugh, and how the world can thrive through education (expecially when it comes to ourselves!). She believes strongly in helping others find their true purpose through individual coaching, team facilitation, or large group training, specializing in communication, relationship building, and presence. As a nationally certified Gallup Strengths Coach, Amie comes alongside and teaches others how to best show up for themselves and those around them.  Outside of owning her own business, Amie loves being with her husband, Josh, their three beautiful children Ava, Miles and Warren, cracking open a new book, drinking a good cup of coffee, exploring the outdoors, and spending an evening at the theater.
