DEC 2 KENTUCKY REC ANNUAL CONFERENCE FEATURED SPEAKER: VITALE BUFORD

Hybrid Event with Special Guest Speakers – In Person and Virtual

Lexington Kentucky, Malone’s Prime Events Center 

We are pleased to be hosting our first ever HYBRID event to give our attendees the option to attend either in person* or virtually.

FEATURED SPEAKER: VITALE BUFORD – OVERCOMING PERFECTIONISM

Perfection is one of the most pervasive challenges holding leaders back – in fact, 97 percent of people struggle with some form of perfectionism. We too often believe that if we achieve perfection, we will also achieve happiness and success -whether it be in our professional life, personal life, or in ourselves.

Symptoms of perfectionism include procrastination, control, people-pleasing, unrealistic expectations, conflict avoidance, feeling stuck, imposter syndrome, all-or-nothing thinking, anxiety, comparison, and stress. In Overcoming Perfectionism, you will learn how to take your energy toward perfectionism and turn it toward success. Attendees will leave feeling more empowered than ever before and will have the tools to help them lead with imperfection and build their confidence.
