In addition, you may feel pulls from your other roles and responsibilities, such as being parent or family member, additional professional or volunteer work, or being in a relationship. Boundary skills are essential to helping you manage the competing demands on your time and energy.

Setting boundaries is the art and practice of what we let in to our lives and what we say "no" to. Boundaries have an integral connection to the flow of our relational lives at work.

The workshop begins with clearly defining what boundaries are and then will move into practical ideas and application of boundary strategies for a healthy life, with a focus on applied experiences in the workplace.
