Do you recognise at least 3 items below in your employee? This could be a sign of (problematic) perfectionism.
We often underestimate the negative impact of perfectionism
At first glance, perfectionists seem like the ideal employees.
They work hard and do their very best at everything that comes their way. They're often very envolved in their work.
But when perfectionism takes over, this behavior can turn into striving too hard. Pressuring yourself way too much, and always doubting your performance.
It's crucial to recognise this pattern in an early stage. This way it can be turned around so that burn-out and other stress-related diseases can be prevented in the long run.
Through coaching I will help your employee to:
My name is Evelien Bijl and I a coach highly educated perfectionists. I live in the Netherlands, but since I coach online I speak to clients from all over the world.
Back in 2011, after graduating with honours in my psychology studies, I started working in a management traineeship for a large corporation.
For over seven years I trained, coached and adviced managers to achieve better results with their teams.
I struggled with my own perfectionism, especially in the first two years of my career. I was constantly worried that I wasn't performing good enough (even though there was no reason to assume this).
Throughout the years I developed a way of coping with this in a much more effective way. This resulted in a much more relaxed and happy life - and I also actually became better at my job...
That's why I started coaching other smart perfectionists in 2016. It's wonderful to be able to teach them everything that has helped me to become a much more easygoing version of myself.
