Getting What You Want: Setting and Maintaining Boundaries with Others

Wednesday, September 18; 6:30-8:30 p.m.

Location: TBD

Presenter: Mark Sachs

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

When we work with clients, boundary issues can come up, not to mention our helping them manage those issues in their workplaces. The inability to effectively set and maintain them at work often results in projects not being completed according to plan or on time, people allowing others to take advantage of them, and miscommunication. When we aren’t successful we can be angry and resentful, resulting in a lot of stress. Successful boundary setting can increase productivity, teamwork, morale, and the bottom line.

In this interactive session participants 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 to doing it effectively.

A Boundaries Handbook and Boundaries Affirmation card will also be provided to participants.
