In this module, you have the opportunity to consider what works, what doesn’t work, and how to position your change effort to be one that is successful.
Personal Boundaries…At Work
Being clear about your personal boundaries before they are crossed is an important life skill. Clear and upheld boundaries help to build relationships that are healthy, mutually respectful, supportive and caring. When you find yourself in uncertain or stressful situations, your boundaries can help to guide you in making the best decisions that will help keep you on your path.
Working with personal boundaries is also an important skill in your professional life. Whether you are a consultant supporting people in organizations to work more effectively together or a leader working to create a positive work environment and achieve your business goals, working with the people’s personal boundaries is a critical ingredient for achieving success. But it’s an ingredient not often explored.
Personal boundaries – we’ve all got them. At their core, your boundaries describe what you are available for and what you are not. The challenge is that many people in the world learn about their boundaries only once they’ve had a life experience where the boundary was crossed. Those situations that cause harm in relationships or maybe put an end to them altogether.
Develop a clear understanding of your personal boundaries and learn how to work with them effectively in the workplace – whether as a leader or working within a team.
