We’re all guilty. Guilty of letting technology rule our lives. People would rather text than talk and research shows that there’s an increasing desire to avoid face time. Don’t let this happen! Lead better — boss technology.
Communication has changed tremendously over the past several years. It’s become fragmented by dividing our attention between people in the room and those on your device. Our quality of exchanges decreases as we deny each other our attention. Lead better — boss technology.
Your productivity is killed when you respond to emails as they arrive. It can take up to 20 minutes to re-focus.

We feel pulled in too many directions creating emptiness and frustration. What can leaders do about this?
