What I’ve been reading: Boundaries for Leaders, by Dr Henry Cloud.
This book is a must-read for anyone who manages conflict in the workplace. Boundaries are an essential part of good conflict management and leadership.
In this book, Dr Henry Cloud explains that boundaries help leaders manage themselves and lead others. They support and enhance what people do in the workplace. Effective boundaries produce freedom, not control.
Dr Cloud explains that “You always get what you create and what you allow”.
He also challenges leaders to be “ridiculously in charge”! (I just love that notion!).
I recommend reading this book along with Brené Brown’s work on boundaries.
