Personal boundaries are guidelines, rules or limits that a person creates to identify reasonable, safe and permissible ways for other people to behave towards them and how they will respond when someone passes those limits.

Taibi Kahler (born 1943) is a psychologist, author, and presidential communications advisor. He added the concepts of the Miniscript and Drivers to Transactional analysis theory and developed them into the 'Process Therapy Model' (PTM) and the 'Process Communication Model' (PCM) of human personality and communication. PTM / PCM theory was used at NASA to vet astronaut candidates for the shuttle programme and Bill Clinton used it to tailor his political speeches. PCM is currently applied to corporate management, interpersonal communications, education, and real-time analysis of call centre interactions.

They can be unhelpful and get in the way of us being our brilliant selves. We all have a tendency toward a particular Driver or Drivers. Being aware of our tendency can be helpful during times of change and transition to get the best from our working style and reduce patterns of stress.
