Setting Boundaries at Work with Palash Sanyal

by | Apr 3, 2022 | Podcast | 0 comments

*Written transcript to come

In this episode you’ll meet Palash Sanyal, emotional intelligence coach and conflict resolution specialist. Our conversation quickly dials into how employees and managers navigate setting boundaries in the workplace. We brainstorm ways in which managers can support new employees so they feel comfortable communicating boundaries, and we delve into the various types of boundaries – which is a completely different conversation that will surprise you.

Palash was born and raised in Bangladesh and moved to Canada in 2017. He’s currently based in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, and his education and background have been tied to water, so he often dares to call himself a water security expert. And as an aside, he also has an engineering degree, and he’s going for his CPA in accountancy.
