The boundaries you need now are more than just physical distancing

Today whilst many focus on the physical boundaries needed to keep safe there is a significant lack of boundaries that many will feel the effects of far beyond the Corona Virus.
 
As we settle into this new normal the boundaries between work and life have become more blurred than ever.  Connecting with many of the women I work with, senior executives with established corporate careers, and I learned how much there is a significant need for more than physical boundaries.
