Join us for the "We Stoop to Conqquer: Adjusting to Mediocrity" webinar
with Li-At Rathbun. 10:30 am Pacific / 11:30 am Mountain / 12:30 pm Central
/ 1:30 pm Eastern Thursday, January 24, 2019 About the webinar

When our boss or client says “good enough” work is good enough, shouldn’t
it be good enough? Why is it a struggle to produce mediocre work when
that’s what the customer wants? Yes, one day the powers-that-be will agree
that all documentation must be flawless and superb. But how do we survive
until that day comes? This session:

   - Explores reasons for why mediocre work might be okay
   - Teaches us a mantra—for those times we just need to hunker down and
   deliver so much less than what we’re capable of
   - Is a venting session! In our cone of silence, we will close our eyes,
   use anonymous names, and share our travails.

We will learn we are not alone in the trenches of mediocrity!* * No, of
course you’ve never worked on a project of this sort; I’m talking to the
others. You’ll just be there “to observe.”

We will be recording the webinar, so feel free to enjoy the presentation
knowing that you can see the recording at a later date.
Intended Audience

The content will be introductory (e.g., > “101 level”) and will also be
valuable to practitioner level attendees.
