Hi guys,

All of us have experienced the time of WFH since May 2021. Due to I’ve prepared the topic in July and the time is running short to think of alternative topics. So, I hope you don’t mind to talk a similar topic that Gavin has prepared in Session One.

In Session Two, let’s talk about Emotional Abuse in The Workplace and How to Setting boundaries at work.

    Quiz from the Article 3:
    Imagine, for example, your boss emails you on Saturday. Visualize what your reaction will be, then create a plan of action. Will you reply right away with the answer he or she wants? Will you reply and say you’ll respond Monday, at work? Will you respond Monday morning and remind him or her of your boundary?

    (1. Prioritize your values 2. Communicate your boundaries clearly 3. Bring up a boundary or violation right away 4. Focus on concrete rather than personal explanations 5. Be ready for boundary breaches)
    Or do you use an alternative way? If yes, please give your advice to your group.
