Episode 86: Resetting Boundaries in a Virtual World

How do we set boundaries so that we can all feel safe to push back in the workplace? Whether you're working in a virtual, hybrid, or face-to-face environment there are times when you may find yourself needing to set boundaries with someone who simply doesn't get it. This person could be a colleague you're collaborating with, someone from a siloed department you've never met, it could even be your boss. It is key to learn how to set boundaries in a work environment. This ensures that you walk away from doing the work still feeling whole.

When we feel overwhelmed or panicked - our brains simply shut down. It doesn't matter how smart you are. No one is immune. By learning new strategies to interact with our colleagues, we can make better decisions that are grounded in mutual understanding. This helps us to bring our authentic selves to work while leading inclusive and high-performing teams.

In this week's episode, Denise Cooper interviews Human Performance Specialist Pamela Brooks-Richards, for her take on how we can more effectively communicate with others in the workplace.
