Perfectionism, for the obvious reasons, is associated with something positive. Such people exhibiting this behaviour, tend to stand out in a crowd, and drive others towards the most desirable of goals. But often, their presence gets detrimental, causing anxiety among team members. They themselves may suffer from the effects of burnout, stress depression or workaholism. There are two forms of perfectionism. One is excellence- seeking perfectionism. This form usually tends to have positive results, because even the others in the team are assessed through that prism to improve. The other is the failure- avoiding perfectionism, when one is obsessively concerned, only about one’s own supposedly high set standards. Leaders focusing on talent management, must try to find out ways to get the best out of such perfectionists, so that it benefits the entire team and not just the individual or the boss.
