Welcome to Her Ambitious Career, the personal branding and success podcast for corporate women who want to get promoted, be sought out for their expertise and be paid appropriately for their impact.
Hi there! I'm Rebecca Allen and I am a Executive & Personal Brand Coach and I have a real passion for getting to the heart of my clients' issues...
Which can often boil down to understanding their values.
And this is the final part of a 3-part series all about our VALUES...
In Part 1, I came to you to talk about how being overly RESPONSIBLE could actually be sabotaging you and adding to your overwork. Listen to that Ep #110 here.
And in Part 2, I talked about LOYALTY as a value and how allowing that value to trump your own needs can actually hold you back too. Listen to that Ep#111 here.
So today, in Part 3, we are discussing the PERFECTION value...
Which on the face of it, appears to have a positive intention to help you deliver outstanding work, right?
However it also brings with it a great deal of disappointment (when you or others don't meet expectations), stress and self-criticism... which can be extremely unhelpful!!
Here's something interesting I said in this ep! :)
"Over-prioritising 'perfect outcomes' means you'll always be disappointed because perfect outcomes are, by their very nature, impossible to achieve. And whilst you're chasing 'perfect' your peers will be chasing 'really great' outcomes and using the time they save to get ahead faster in their careers." (Rebecca Allen, Career Success Coach and host of Her Ambitious Career podcast)
