Today’s leaders need to be able to communicate clearly, address morale issues, increase productivity, and reduce stress and turnover in the organization. One often-overlooked leadership skill can help leaders achieve all these results while improving personal and work relationships. That skill is setting and maintaining boundaries with others. When we effectively set boundaries and limits with others, we take better care of ourselves, maintain our self-respect, and increase the likelihood we will have more control over our lives.
In this interactive session you will learn:
- What is a boundary
- Examples of setting effective boundaries
- Why it is often difficult for us to set and maintain them
- The essential steps and additional tips to be successful
You will also be provided with a boundaries handbook.
