Setting Healthy Boundaries

Many workers enjoy their new-found ability to work from home or in a hybrid fashion. However, many are also saying they struggle to set boundaries between their work and personal schedules. This 30-minute workshop provides guidance, resources and tools around setting work-related and personal boundaries. This can help to lower stress levels while generating feelings of empowerment and self control. Participants will consider their mind-set when it comes to asking for help, task delegation and saying no in order to focus on the tasks and goals that are most important to them.
