Columbus: class: Courage, Not Perfection

Tuesday, Oct 27 12 pm to 1 pm

Courage, Not Perfection


The past few months have provided an opportunity for reflection. Many have been thoughtful about re-evaluating their situations and looking back on their lives. As a result, the questions, “How are we emerging from this?” and “What changes are being made in our lives and careers?” are being asked. WELD would like to encourage these conversations by providing this thought-provoking series of sessions. 

Please join us for a session featuring Kris McGuigan, Founder and CEO, Professional Courage, who will discuss “Courage, Not Perfection”. 

In this program, we will explore human happiness drivers and unpack the barriers that block progress. By emphasizing milestones over major accomplishments, we learn to celebrate the middle ground and build courage as a muscle as opposed to a state of mind. During this interactive workshop, attendees will learn to:

• Let go of predictability to find possibility

• Harness the power of fear to combat imposter syndrome

• Move from unworthy to unafraid
