Presentation: Collaboration, Not Perfection!
Women are taught that to be successful, you must be perfectly independent, perfectly organized, perfectly on top of things, and… well, just plain perfect.    As a result, we burn countless hours striving for an impossible standard, to the detriment of our personal and professional lives, not to mention our mental health.  In this workshop, we will discuss the power of collaboration as a tool to meet goals, while maintaining your sanity.  Participants will learn to shift their focus from their weaknesses to their strengths, viewing those areas where they are less strong as opportunities for collaboration.
