    MCSHRM is excited to welcome Mark Sachs of Mark Sachs & Associates, to talk with us about Getting What You Want: Setting and Maintaining Boundaries with Others.  This program has been approved for 2.0 HRCI - General recertification credits.

    The success of organizations greatly depends on good communication. When managing staff or interacting with coworkers, one of the most difficult things is telling others what we need from them and then maintaining those decisions. 

    Typical boundaries issues at work include:

    • Someone makes a request and you have difficulty saying no or setting limits on what you will accept.  
    • Coworkers are rude to you.
    • People aren’t clear about their expectations of you. 
    • Supervisors pile on assignments without setting priorities or completion deadlines.      
    • Colleagues stop by to chat with you too frequently.
    • You work very late hours at the expense of your family or friends and your own mental and physical well-being.

    In this interactive and experiential session you will learn:

    • What is a boundary?
    • Examples of setting effective boundaries.
    • Why it is often difficult for us to set and maintain them.

    • The essential steps and additional tips to be successful in setting them.

    When setting boundaries is done effectively, there is clearer communication, fewer morale problems, better teamwork, productivity increases, and there is less stress and turnover. 

    As a special gift to participants, you will be provided with a Boundaries Handbook!
