When working within a business environment, its important to establish boundaries when interacting with others.
Boundaries are the established and unsaid rules in which you, as a business person interact through. They are important as a strong boundary implies a strong sense of character, value and function.
But boundaries don’t just apply to the people working within the business, they also apply to the business itself. A business with strong boundaries will appear (albeit in the business world) as a business that is well established, successful and operating well in the current business climate.
Boundaries demand respect, because we as humans have personal boundaries built within us as part of our psychology. Because of this, boundaries are a universally recognised aspect of business. Whether the business recognises it or not, it is something that runs through all of the businesses interactions. Whether with customers, members of the public or other businesses.
