The lines between work and personal time are blurred even more than they were before the pandemic hit. As a leader, part of your job is to set the precedent for adhering to boundaries. Do you work all hours? Send emails at 10 p.m.? If so, you may be sending the wrong message to your colleagues. In this keynote, you will learn what it takes to create effective boundary-setting in the workplace.
