Do you stay late at the office many nights, trying to empty an Inbox that never seems to diminish? Do you have difficulty dealing with cantankerous bosses or passive-aggressive coworkers? Do you find yourself checking your BlackBerry during dates, family dinners, or your children's soccer games? If you said yes to any of these questions, your work life has taken over your personal life. In Boundaries at Work, Dr. Henry Cloud shows how the failure to maintain good boundaries at your workplace not only blurs the line between the professional and the personal, but leaves you less equipped to deal with the problems in today's ultra-competitive, instant-connect work environment. Dr. Cloud will teach you how to construct and enforce better boundaries against the technological devices, bullying bosses, and distracting coworkers who invade your time and space and how to move toward a life that fully encompasses work, family, and God.
