Topic 3 Setting boundaries step-by-step

Ari Rabban explains that setting boundaries is beneficial for teams, as they “create more positive dynamics. Not only do they increase their teams’ abilities to focus and prioritize, but they also make everyone happier and more productive”. He has created a step-by-step guide on setting effective boundaries within a team:

  1. Identify where boundaries are needed (e.g., encourage team members to specify and identify any boundaries they need)
  2. Assertion (e.g., identify the top five areas where boundaries are needed and discuss their implementation)
  3. Schedule (e.g., ask each team member to create a work schedule where the Step 1 boundaries and their personal boundaries are taken into consideration)
  4. Boundaries breach awareness (i.d., be prepared that the boundaries might be breached).
