Bandwidth and Boundaries
Vitale Buford Hardin, CEO, The Hardin Group
Bandwidth isn’t just a leadership issue, it’s a mental health issue. Employees are completely overbooked, overworked, and on the verge of chronic burnout. In fact, bandwidth might be at an all-time low. This impacts workplace culture, productivity, and retention. So how do you solve it? The solution for low bandwidth is high boundaries. When your plate is already full, you don’t need a bigger plate, you need better boundaries. In this workshop you will learn tangible strategies to solve the bandwidth problem. You will learn about the different types of boundaries and how to implement them. Attendees will leave this workshop feeling more empowered than ever before with a clear roadmap and actions to take to solve their bandwidth problem!
