Did you know that setting and maintaining boundaries is a critical aspect of strong, healthy leadership?
Yep, we thought you did.
So, why do so many of us struggle to actually make it happen?!
Many successful accountants are people-pleasers. We enjoy making other people happy – our clients, bosses, colleagues, and team members, plus all the other amazing people in our lives.
However, as much as you may want to please others, it’s impossible. People will never stop asking you for things. Something that one person asks of you could be in direct conflict with what someone else asks of you or what you need for yourself.
Without healthy boundaries, you will soon find yourself unable to keep up with all the requests coming your way. You’ll ultimately sacrifice yourself for others, resent other people and your work, and burn out. That wouldn’t make anyone very happy, would it?
If any of this rings true for you, and you’re ready to make real change, we’ve got your back:
- Check out our latest episode of Leading Possibilities, where we explore some common beliefs that stop us from setting healthy boundaries, how you can change those beliefs, and how to finally start setting those boundaries you’ve always wanted.
- We’re diving deep into this challenge during the month of October in our I2L Healthy Leaders Community. We’ll help you define your most important boundaries and create some practices to maintain them. Join us this month, so you’ll be ready to jump in on October 1! For only $39/month, you can receive the support, accountability and connection you need to set and maintain your most critical boundaries.
When you set healthier boundaries, you honor yourself. When you honor yourself, you’ll be better able to serve and support others. What are you waiting for?
See you in the DOP,
