With most perfectionists reluctant to seek help to manage their perfectionistic thoughts and behaviors, all of my talks on perfectionism open a channel of thinking that inspires the audience to consider the subject differently.
I don’t hold traditional views on perfectionism, so if you’re thinking that I’ll just be harping on about how bad it is and what we need to do to get rid of it, you’d be wrong. I use science, proven techniques, and real solutions to encourage perfectionists to embrace the healthy part of their perfectionism and maximize its potential by managing the unhealthy part in healthier ways. This approach creates a deep connection with each audience member and leaves a lasting impression in the room.
It’s an enjoyable ride, too! I’ve lived with perfectionism for so long I can have fun with it on stage, and share plenty of relatable experiences in a way that inspires the audience to want to participate, lean in, and take action.
My talks aren’t just for perfectionists. We are surrounded by perfectionism every day; at work, with family, and in relationships, and each talk offers powerful solutions for anyone needing to manage perfectionism, whether their own or someone else’s.
I’m passionate about inspiring perfectionists to lead healthier lives, and I’m looking forward to connecting with your audience soon!
All of my talks are completely customizable to your needs and I frequently work with clients to create speeches on topics outside of the ones listed below. My current speeches include …
Perfectionism – Realizing our true potential
This talk is a follow-on from my TEDx Talk on Perfectionism in 2019, and further explores how perfectionists can realize their potential through the introduction of self-compassion. It speaks directly to the perfectionist’s ability to maintain the high standards they are capable of in healthier ways, illustrating how the growth mindset and other proven management techniques can enhance their lives as they strive to be the best they can be.
Culture Perfect – The pathway to better productivity in business
If you’re not addressing perfectionism in your business, you’re losing money. Guaranteed.
30% of the world’s population are estimated to struggle with perfectionism. This means 30% of your workforce is likely to be under performing because either they haven’t realized how unhealthy perfectionism is affecting their productivity and/or they have no idea how to manage their perfectionistic thoughts and behaviors in the workplace.
This talk inspires employees and their leaders to understand how perfectionism affects productivity in business and introduces powerful management techniques to help cultivate a working environment where perfectionists can thrive.
The Room Where It Happened
Drawing from my experience on the Broadway, Touring, and Puerto Rico productions of the hit musical HAMILTON, this talk combines stories of leadership, inspiration, and education with anecdotes from my time on the show. I teach the audience how to rap in the opening 2 minutes, ensuring your audience is captivated from the start, and they learn exactly what it takes to be in the show and what we can all learn from its coveted place in society.
(This talk can include as much music and audience participation as you’d like – or none at all!)
