Imperfect Power

Perfectionism goes hand in hand with dedication, attention to detail, drive and perseverance, but also with uncertainty and stress. Perfectionism goes hand in hand with “never good enough”. The perfectionist scores high on control and doesn’t just hand things over. This takes a lot of energy.

In this training, based on recent studies, we will focus on how you deal with your perfectionism in a constructive way and thus reduce stress.  You will learn how to find a good balance between commitment, performance and expectations.  

Please note: this training is only intended for Non-Dutch speaking students.
