Leading With Boundaries
Boundaries are welcomed by some and frightening to others. Boundaries mark the limits of an area or activity.
On one hand, these limits can inhibit the creativity of those who need to develop their abilities and opportunities to explore beyond the norm.
On the other hand, these limits provide safety and security in ways that prevent drifting into areas that represent risk, danger, and defeat.
Leaders need to know how to use boundaries properly. Followers need opportunity to spread the wings of creativity and explore beyond the status quo.
At the same time, there must be strategic lines that minimize the risk of loss.
