Have you ever asked yourself why you are spending less time interacting with people in person and more time sitting alone behind a pixilated screen? As we furiously type into our keypads in search of the Holy Grail – an empty inbox – our happiness and well-being dissipate. Through eye-opening studies, interviews with some of our world’s most captivating thought leaders and stories gleaned from his 25+ years as a leadership trainer and professor, Anthony Silard will help you realize what many of us are losing in the digital age—ourselves and our most important relationships—and provide a roadmap to reclaim them.
