It’s time to work on how we work. If you’ve gotten hooked on being perfect instead of being of service, this book will be a balm. Share it with someone who needs your help.

I so wanted to write that Flawed is perfect!  It covers very important material in a highly engaging style, drawing from extensive clinical research. But I avoid the obvious and ironic error to say instead that Flawed offers a comprehensive look at the dangers of perfectionism in teams and organizations – and offers a way out. Author Greg Chasson adds a crucial new perspective to existing resources on perfectionism in individuals by bringing his considerable clinical expertise to the workplace.

Chasson's authoritative voice instilled confidence in the efficacy of the solutions proposed, yet there’s a gentility and a smoothness to the tone that makes it feel as though you’re getting advice from a wise mentor-friend rather than a hierarchical superior. The result is a work that sheds light on the complexities of perfectionism in the workplace in a positive, motivating way that makes you want to put the book down and take action. Overall, Flawed serves as a transformative guide for leaders seeking to build cohesive teams and drive success in the face of perfectionism-related challenges, and I would not hesitate to recommend it.

Time for companies to stop hailing perfection as the only destination and recognize flexible thinking as a viable direction. Fixating on unreasonable expectations is a surefire way to act inauthentically and unnaturally, while also undermining your personal and professional potential. Chasson’s entertaining and informative book masterfully changes the way we think about perfection. This book will help leaders and perfectionists alike.

And more importantly, he provides you with a multitude of strategies that you can use to help these employees truly tap into their potential.

Flawed is one of those precious books that comes along just at the right moment. It's well-researched, chock-full of illuminating case studies, and offers a treasure trove of clinically-informed strategies to manage both our own perfectionism and the perfectionism of other people. Like spending time with a close friend, by the end of it I was sad to put it down. It’s the only book on perfectionism that business leaders will ever need.
