Powered by a decade of global research and practice by the top-ranked Center for Creative Leadership (CCL), this book will introduce you to practical tools and tactics to apply the 6 boundary spanning practices that occur at the nexus where groups collide, intersect, and link:

  • Buffering defines boundaries to create safety.
  • Reflecting creates understanding of boundaries to foster respect.
  • Connecting suspends boundaries to build trust.
  • Mobilizing reframes boundaries to develop community.
  • Weaving interlaces boundaries to advance interdependence.
  • Transforming cross-cuts boundaries to enable reinvention.
