Is career success possible without burnout? Or do the two now go together? On March 12, Claire Wasserman, founder of Ladies Get Paid, an organization that seeks to close the wage and leadership gap through career development, will address the topic in a talk titled, “Protect Your Energy and Let Go of Perfectionism,” at American Spa’s Women in Wellness Leadership Conference in New York City.
If you’re constantly feeling drained and on the verge of burnout, or if you’re super hard on yourself and constantly focused on your mistakes and never stopping to feel proud of your accomplishments, this is the talk for you. In addition to identifying signs of burnout, Wasserman will share how to set boundaries at work, handle mistakes with grace, and embrace who you are, flaws and all. She’ll offer tips for handling critical feedback; letting go of perfectionism, a trait common among women; and realizing your own self-worth.
Last year, Wasserman traveled the U.S. hosting town halls for thousands of women to talk about money, work, and self-worth. She is currently writing a book about the experience. Since its launch in 2016, Ladies Get Paid has grown to 30,000 members in all 50 states and in more than 60 countries. Wasserman has collaborated with Nike, WeWork, and Squarespace and was chosen as one of Bumble’s “100 Most Inspiring New Yorkers.” She is also on the Well + Good Council and is the producer and host of the podcast, “Lady Talk.”
