Chris Murchison, Leader in Residence at Center for Positive Organizations, blogs about perfectionism and his personal experiences with managing it.

In “The Mindful Perfectionist,” Murchison explains that accepting his own inwardly focused perfectionism was “key to unlocking [his] leadership potential.” Sharing his own story, he writes that perfectionism’s positives include creativity and results. He also describes the challenges of perfectionism, the importance of avoiding a negative downward spiral, and offers ten mindful practices to manage perfectionism on negative days.

Murchison, the former vice president for staff development and culture at HopeLab, will be speaking at the 2017 Positive Organizational Research Conference.
