1:00 – 2:00 pm ET (10:00 – 11:00 am PT)

Learn how to set and enforce boundaries at work so you can get more done while not burning out.

Jump Starter Workshops are Pass Holder Exclusives. You MUST have an All-Access Pass to attend.

Recording NOT Available. Please do not register if you can’t attend live.

All nonprofit communicators need to set boundaries with their coworkers. Boundaries exist to protect you, not to appease or please other people.

The problem? Most of us are bad at setting boundaries and even worse at enforcing them when they are crossed, because we want to be people-pleasing team players who can make amazing things happen!

During this Jump Starter workshop, we’ll help you pick one or two boundaries that you’d like to set, figure out how to discuss the new boundary with those who’ll be affected, and troubleshoot what you’ll do when people inevitably try to cross it.

During this Jump Starter, you’ll receive:

  • Brief training on what boundaries are and why they are so powerful.  For example, boundaries are made up of Yes and No. Boundaries are not emotions. While you and others will have emotional reactions to boundaries, they are not one and the same.

  • Help identifying which boundaries you should consider in your nonprofit comms work.  We’ll brainstorm together a suggested list for your consideration, including boundaries regarding assignments, content, deadlines, and off-hours.

  • Boundary setting worksheets. You’ll get our step-by-step worksheet to help you set and implement your new boundaries.

  • Time to work on your boundary setting plan. You’ll have time during the Jump Starter to begin working on your new boundaries, to create your plan to share them, and to think about how you’ll react when the boundary is crossed.

What Others Have Said about Our Jump Starter Workshops

“I appreciate the interactive component of the Jumpstart workshop. It was valuable having the opportunity to apply what we are learning during the session. Instead of setting myself a reminder to “do this,” I came away with a framework I can put use almost immediately. Thank you! This is a great direction to take your training sessions.” – Holly Pattison
