Session Description:

When we effectively set boundaries and limits with others, it has a huge impact on our ability to do our best work.  An example of setting a boundary is telling others what is acceptable.  Effectively setting and maintaining boundaries helps people take better care of themselves, maintain self-respect, and increase their ability to control their work and their personal lives.


When managing staff or just interacting with coworkers, one of the most difficult things for many of us is to tell others what we need from them and then staying  with those decisions.  Effective boundary setting can increase productivity, teamwork, morale, and the bottom line.  When we aren’t able to successfully set them, we can be angry and resentful with others and ourselves, resulting in a lot of stress. 


The inability to set and maintain boundaries effectively often results in projects not being completed according to plan or on time, people allowing others to take advantage of them, and miscommunication.


When people successfully set them it gives them increased courage and confidence to set them in other parts of their lives.


Learning Objectives:

  • What is a boundary.
  • Examples of setting effective boundaries.
  • Why it is often difficult for us to set and maintain boundaries.
  • Specific steps you can take to successfully set them.
