Technology has impacted our workplaces in ways that weren’t possible a decade ago. We feel highly connected. But are we, really? Instead of strong bonds, we have weak ties. Instead of productive meetings, we have distractions. Despite the illusion of 24/7 connection, in reality, most workers feel isolated from their colleagues, their organization and its leaders. What they crave most — and what research increasingly shows to be the hallmark of the highest-performing workplace cultures — is a sense of authentic connection with others. They want to get back to human. Dan Schawbel shows you how — while still optimizing all the benefits of technology.

During this webinar, we will discuss:

  • Why the highest performing and healthiest teams are the ones that are the most connected.
  • How technology can negatively impact work relationships — and how to radically improve them.
  • How to recognize and support employees who feel isolated from the team.
  • How team connectivity impacts business outcomes and can increase loyalty and organizational commitment — and ways to encourage it.
