Show Notes Chapter Markers

Setting boundaries isn’t tricky. Enforcing them can be. 

 

Throughout my leadership journey, I have learned the power of setting boundaries, or what I call ground rules. Once you set the ground rules and they are agreed upon, everyone knows how to play. And once you know how to play, you never have to worry about walking on egg shells about the things you do personally or professionally. 

 

But what are the ground rules for you and your career? What is non-negotiable, and where are you willing to give in a little? 

 

In this episode, you will learn precisely what a ground rule is, how to create them, how best to get buy-in, and when it’s time to re-evaluate or re-negotiate them.
