Interrupting Perfection

Speaking Focus/Topics:

Interrupting Perfection in the Lives of Women

Perfection has a sneaky way of convincing the best people that their best that their work is not good enough. As a former perfectionist, Danita is uniquely qualified to tackle this issue and its underlying causes.  According to Psychology Today there is a direct link between perfection and depression. Women who are perfectionists can easily fall into patterns of perfection causing them not to show up in their lives as the women they desire to be. In her Signature Talk  Interrupting Perfection Danita is able to address this issue in an honest, upfront and direct way and gives the audience keys to freedom. 

Interrupting Cycles of Failure

To fail is to be human but to stay in a cycle of failure will limit your whole life.  Experiencing the sting of failure is normal but some of us get stuck in a cycle of failure. What is a cycle of Failure? This is when a failure controls you and will not allow you to move forward. You could be struggling with a fear of public speaking,  asking your boss for a raise or even having the courage to start one of your big dreams. This keynote will inspire you to take action and go for your desires. 

No more Perfect Relationships

A perfectionist in a relationship is critical of others, afraid of exposing vulnerability, eager to please, always waiting to the "right moment" and takes criticism personally. If you can relate to one or all of these issues, then perfection may be rearing it's ugly head in your life. Due to the complex and emotional nature of this workshop, it is best for small to medium-sized groups. Exploring this issue is great for women's groups, conferences, or breakout sessions.
