Oops, You're Stepping on My Boundaries!
Boundaries are limits that define us as separate from others. Although this concept is a familiar one in personal and addictions counseling, it is seldom discussed in career development or career counseling. Yet boundary issues arise constantly in working relationships, in the job-application process, among employees, and especially with supervisors and managers. This paper briefly describes the concept of boundaries and their formation, explores some typical work-related boundary issues, and provides some suggestions for setting and maintaining healthy boundaries.
