My post earlier this week, How to Gracefully Choose Between Work and Life, touched on this issue of setting good boundaries at work.
This is one of the toughest issues that comes up for people in the workplace, and unfortunately, most of our organizations are pretty anti-boundary. We don’t really like it when someone declines a meeting, or says they need to work from home instead today, or doesn’t get back to us within .25 milliseconds.
But if we’re going to stay sane in today’s world of work, we have to learn how to set – and enforce – good boundaries in a way that’s both loving and assertive.
In an effort to help us all do that, I’ve created a SlideShare presentation called Lovingly Assertive Boundary-Setting. I hope you enjoy this visual presentation!
