For once you don’t have to organize anything, just show up in comfortable clothes, be ready to learn, take care of yourself, and network. At this learning retreat we will address managing work and relationships, answer the questions important to you, share techniques to care for yourself during your busy workday, and provide networking time with your colleagues at other schools. Participants will leave with specific strategies to be implemented immediately, techniques for self-care, and a new network/friends.

Morning Presentation: Getting What You Want: Setting and Maintaining Boundaries with Others with Mark Sachs
When we effectively set boundaries and limits with others, it has a huge impact on our ability to do our best work. An example of setting boundaries is telling people what we want and letting them know what is acceptable. Effectively setting and maintaining them helps people take better care of themselves, maintain self-respect, and increase their ability to control their work and their personal lives. 

When working with others, whether in the organization or outside of the organization, one of the most difficult things to do is to tell others what we need from them and then staying with those decisions. The inability to effectively set and maintain boundaries can result in work not being completed according to plan or on time, people allowing others to take advantage of them, and miscommunication. When we aren’t successful, we can be angry and resentful with others and ourselves, resulting in a lot of stress. 

Effective boundary setting can increase productivity, teamwork, morale, and the bottom line. 

In this highly interactive and experiential workshop, participants will learn:

• What is a boundary 
• Examples of setting effective boundaries
• Why it is often difficult for us to set and maintain boundaries
• The essential steps to doing it effectively 


The Boundaries Handbook will also be provided. The workshop will be an opportunity for participants, if they would like, to discuss with others in a confidential setting any boundary issues they are facing and to receive feedback from the facilitator and others about how they may best work through these situations. 

The workshop also provides an opportunity for attendees to start to take action on setting or enforcing a boundary.
