20: 3 Reasons Boundaries are Critical for Leadership {Relationships Series}

You know that you should have boundaries, but why are they so critical, and how do you go about setting them? And what do boundaries have to do with healthy relationships and effective leadership?

In this episode of the Healthy Relationships series, I share why boundaries are critical to effective leadership. I also discuss what boundaries look like in real life, and how to practically set boundaries. If you’ve struggled with setting boundaries in the past OR if you feel like defining boundaries seems restrictive, you won’t want to miss today’s episode.

Why do we need boundaries?

There are three reasons we need boundaries:

  1. Boundaries sustain us. They keep us from burnout.
  2. Boundaries protect our relationships. Without boundaries we do things without a thought about how they impact those around us.
  3. Boundaries bring freedom. When you take into account your personality, preferences, and what you want your life to look like, it creates freedom to do what is most important to you.
How do we practically set boundaries?
  • Start with your priorities. What is the most important to you? For me, it’s my family, faith, and work. Take time to think through and use the PowerSheets* tool for extra help.
  • Look at your calendar. Does it reflect your top priorities?
  • Turn off the notifications on your phone. Want 23 ways to create boundaries? Start here.
