Boundaries and Saying No with Grace and Power

By Betsy Charles, DVM

Setting boundariesSetting boundaries is a complex process that requires self awareness about our own values as well as an understanding of how to effectively communicate those values to others. Once we understand who we are and what is important to us, both personally and professionally, we can begin to articulate what’s okay and what’s not okay in our relationships in order to build appropriate personal and professional boundaries.
