Perfectionism vs Healthy Striving – High Performance Leadership Requires Understanding the Difference

Published

Leadership is challenging.

In days gone by, it was enough for a leader to be the one who knew the most in the room. Today’s leadership requires levels of self-awareness, emotional and connectional intelligence that many leaders have not had the time or awareness to develop.

Personal and professional development that assist a leader’s capacity to see “the potential in people and processes and the courage to develop that potential” is a journey; well worth your time and attention. One of the most significant challenges for leaders of today is to become aware of and managing what we believe. Our brains are busy making sense of so much information. It’s easy to jump to conclusions about ourselves, the people and the processes in our workplaces that are not 100% true.

As leaders, raising our level of self-awareness helps us to check beliefs or stories that may or may not serve our organization well. One pit that many of us fall into, particularly if we are not aware that the pit it there, is perfectionism.

Understanding the difference between perfectionism and healthy striving requires careful examination.

Perfectionism is a “self-destructive and addictive belief system”.
Healthy striving is a motivation that comes from a very different place and fuels the health of individuals and organizations.

Perfectionism is “armour”, a defence mechanism, that has a way of hiding our best selves. It drives behaviour that ends up creating disconnection.
Healthy striving has the reverse effect, empowering our most authentic voice, resilience, and greater connection in the workplace.

The difference is subtle and isn’t necessarily observable.
Our long term health and capacity as leaders depends on understanding and leveraging this distinction.

Take your leadership and your organization to the next level with new thoughts, tools and awareness.
Explore new ways to lead, parent and manage your relationships both in and out of work!

Construction underway at Red Deer Regional Airport Terminal

Published

on

Construction has begun at the Red Deer Regional Airport to convert the existing terminal into a full-service FBO (Fixed Based Operator), in partnership with Tucana Aviation.

The term FBO is given to an organization granted the right by an airport to provide a variety of ground support services, such as fueling, maintenance, catering, transportation/accommodation logistics, etc. In addition to their operational expertise and experience, they are also service orientated with an unwavering commitment to providing the best customer experience possible for both the passengers and flight crew, as they transient the airport.

Our partner in this endeavour, Tucana Aviation, is a well-established organization with a combined 30 years leadership experience in the aviation/oil and gas business. Their knowledge and experience, along with their unwavering commitment to safety/security as an existing tenant at the Red Deer Regional Airport, makes them an ideal partner. Tucana Aviation will be tasked with increasing the Charter and VIP traffic that utilizes the Red Deer Regional Airport, through various marketing and collaborative efforts with the Airport Authority.

Jim Freake, Operations Manager at Tucana Aviation states: “As the airports newest partner, we see huge potential for both oil and gas companies and private aircraft operators looking for VIP service while at the same time saving thousands in operating costs. We are truly thankful for this opportunity and look forward to helping grow the Red Deer Regional Airport”.

Graham Ingham, CEO of the Red Deer Regional Airport states: “We are very excited to be partnering with Tucana Aviation, and for the opportunity to further grow the airport by leveraging their experience and relationships. Focusing on service and making sure our customers have a positive experience while at the airport is also extremely important to us, as we attempt to capitalize on an already thriving charter market currently running along the Edmonton – Calgary corridor”.

The development of the Red Deer Regional Airports FBO partnership with Tucana Aviation is a vital step towards growth at the airport, and a big part of their future strategic planning. This, in addition to the recent unveiling of their land development strategy, and continued pursuit of scheduled air service, will ensure the airport is capable of achieving its vision of becoming the “Aviation Gateway and Key Economic Driver for Central Alberta”.
