Boundaries – why don't they work like the podcasts say they will?
Do you struggle to set boundaries? Or try to, and they inevitably fail? Or worse, your team gets frustrated at you for them?
The animal care industry doesn’t make boundaries easy – we want to help, we want to do well, and the culture of trying to do it all means we feel bad leaving our colleagues when we know we should go home.
But all the advice on setting boundaries makes it sound so simple; as if you can just decide on your boundary and never break it. But we know the reality isn’t like that.
Here, we talk about the reality of boundaries when working in animal care, how to know which boundaries to hold and which are better to bend before they break, having conversations as a team about shared boundaries, and using technology as a force for good rather than evil.
If you know you need boundaries but continually struggle to hold them, you MUST watch this video.
