Do you or others you know have a difficult time saying “no” or telling others what you want from them? If so, setting strong, clear, healthy boundaries or limits can increase your effectiveness in getting your needs met, maintaining your self-respect, and taking better care of yourself. How often do you wish you could have set a boundary or limit with others?
Getting What You Want: Setting Better Boundaries with Others
When you set strong, clear, healthy boundaries or limits you can increase your effectiveness in getting your needs met. It can also take a lot of worry off your shoulders. We will cover boundary issues that can show up in personal and professional relationships.
This 1 ½ hour session will increase your understanding and give you practice in:
- Defining a boundary.
- Seeing examples of setting them effectively.
- Why it may be difficult for you to establish them.
- How to effectively set a boundary.
You will be able to talk with others in small groups, learn
from them and share your experiences.
Within 30 days after completing this interactive workshop you may request a free individual coaching session on this topic with Mark. Also, he will mail to you a Boundaries Affirmations card that others have found to be helpful.

“The large group discussion and breakout rooms were helpful. Really great session!” “Willing to share similar and different perspectives pretty safely…. learned and reflected a lot in “only” 90 minutes!”
At work, boundary setting helps to reduce stress, create clearer communication, improve morale, and increase productivity. Setting boundaries includes deciding what you want or don’t want, telling others, and then staying with those decisions once you’ve made them.
“Getting What You Want” is a half-day workshop that provides coworkers with an opportunity to discuss on-the-job issues in a constructive way. Participants can be a group of individuals or an intact work team, and the session may be stand-alone or part of a leadership or management development program.
Mark has presented boundaries workshops in more than 50 organizations, helping people set them better in personal and work relationships.
Benefits from the workshop include:
- Improved understanding about why it is difficult to set boundaries.
- Real-life examples of boundary setting.
- The most important steps to effectively setting and maintaining boundaries.
- Increased confidence and courage to set the boundaries that are important to you.
Plus, participants will leave the workshop with…
- A 17-page, easy-to-read Boundaries Handbook containing strategies for success in setting boundaries and a Boundaries Affirmations card.
“With the in-person workshop I loved the use of movie clips, the boundary cards are a great idea, and the requests for shared experiences from participants and pairings/small group work made the session practical and valuable. Mark’s own shared stories were relevant and funny and he shared in such a way that was quite unassuming, a bit different from most presenters.”
